Eric, Well, I guess you've finally made a good point. Someone with an IQ hovering around freezing point couldn't have their feelings hurt, since they don't have the mental capacity to realize how stupid they are. "Nor are you in any danger of being misperceived as a Constitutional authority. " Unless I missed your appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court, neither are you. You may hold all the opinions you want, that doesn't make them right. "I'm curious about one thing in your gratuitous insults -- is there some distinction between male and female bovine excrement? " Now were getting into youre area of expertise! You normally spew BS (male), and I think they make manure frome female bovine excrement. You're the expert, you tell me.

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.   

But...

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
