I enjoy it when people get medieval-like on other peoples' buttocks.

When crossbows are outlawed, only outlaws will have crossbows.

Maybe he was reliving the 80's

Must have been pissed when he was asked to sign that waiver for "Taxicab Confessions."

There are stories of swordings and crossbowings all the time: when the hell are we going to hear of a macing (not the spray kind, mind you) or a halberding or a quarterstaffing?

I imagine he spewed forth some pithy Arnold Schwartzenagerism like "keep the tip" before he launched the bolt into the guys forehead.

Why did I know when I read the tagline that this was in my home parish of St. Tammany? I'm just surprised it wasn't some of my relatives... both the shooter and the shootee?

Light or heavy crossbow? Cabbie could have gotten out of there or fought back. It's a half or full round action to reload.
 
2004-10-21 02:20:36 PM  
so who was the shooter? the cabbie or a passenger?

Bounced off his head?
 
2004-10-21 02:23:22 PM  
Apparently the shooter did not have any + to his dexterity, or possibly just got some bad rolls of the dice.
 
2004-10-21 02:23:41 PM  
how crappy of a crossbow do you have if the bolt bounces off the person's forehead?

/wants armor piercing goodness
//it's bullshiat that the guy who got shot still is being brought up on simple battery b/c he hit the shooter at some point. self defense maybe?
 
2004-10-21 02:23:47 PM  
Man, I love crossbows!

I have to applaud any use of a crossbow during execution of a crime. Just don't see enough of that nowadays!

He was on his way to the Folio Depository...

hand crossbow...hand crossbow
 
2004-10-21 02:25:09 PM  
that's pretty bad if the first bolt glanced off at such close range. dude's hitroll must have been a 1

you talkin to me?

 
2004-10-21 02:27:57 PM  
Wow, if that had been a real gun, that'd be attempted murder, but he gets a headshot AND an arm, and it's only aggravated assault.

Crazy.
 
2004-10-21 02:28:42 PM  
Was it those darn Duke boys? Oh wait, they used a bow and arrow, not a crossbow.

2004-10-21 02:31:41 PM  
I wonder if the cabbie thought anything of his passenger carrying a loaded crossbow with him into the taxi.

Did someone call a cab??

We better-than-thou folks knew this was going to happen. The Assault Crossbow ban gets lifted, and first thing you know, every dickless, bow-crazed idiot from the Kingdom Crossbow Association is out firing bolts in the streets!

Do you know how many goats die every year from stray crossbow bolts? Nine! Think of the goats, please!


how crappy of a crossbow do you have if the bolt bounces off the person's forehead?


I highly doubt it hit him square in the forehead. Glancing blow. Come in at a sharp angle, it skips off the skull and just rips up the skin. It can happen with bullets, too.


/wants armor piercing goodness

Actually, a good crossbow will penetrate almost any suit of armor you come across. (Kevlar or Full Plate. Take your pick.)

That's why we have been fighting so hard to get these "Knight Killer" crossbow bolts OFF the market!
 
2004-10-21 02:36:51 PM  
think of the KawNiggits!
 
2004-10-21 02:39:55 PM  
nuttin to see here folks... just a little accident...

 
2004-10-21 02:41:50 PM  
this story needs a different label...

"sweeeeet!"
 
2004-10-21 02:42:48 PM  
Slidell - of course it ends with crossbows. I liked the day care meth lab arson report lower down on that page, as well.
 
2004-10-21 02:43:08 PM  
hmm. And to think we had a crossbow sitting around for home defense (no, really).

It may be time to upgrade to Half-Life style explosive tipped bolts.

Crossbows don't kill people, quarrels kills people.

Now you can see the perils of giving someone a ride to a renaissance fair.

Hope the guy said 'Huzzah' as he fired

Funny Stuff! Do you need a permit to get a crossbow? I don't see why people are gettting crossbows unless its to avoid gun laws or they are Xbow enthusiasts.
