Ishag Ahmed, 29, of Winnipeg is charged with robbery with a weapon and wearing a disguise with criminal intent.

I now have a new goal in life. I want to be charged with wearing a disguise with criminal intent.

I think that is a very noble goal.

You can't return a defective goat head without the receipt.

In related news, Ahmed also volunteered to dress up as a biatch for his time in jail.

Knowing Winnipeg, a quicker getaway than a bus would have been to lie on the street pretending to be a drunk native, and have the cops drive you away.

That's like handing a teller a hold up note written on the back of one of your deposit slips. Oh wait somebody has already done that.

On behalf of the stoooopid hillbillies of Raleigh, NC let me add that our own "Skullface" bandit has this week alone pulled off 6 successful robberies ON FOOT.

Would of been funnier if he got on to the bus then transferred into a waiting cop car.

As someone who lives in Chapel Hill, NC (But is attending college in Cincinnati), I had not heard of this. Could you elaborate?

It's reasons like this why I love Winnipeg

There was a bank robber here in Downtown Seattle last year that would rob a bank and then jump on the bus. She got away with it for weeks. She was dubbed the "bag lady bandit".

They wouldn't let me read the story unless I put in my gender, Birthdate, geographical location, and email address, so I put in "year 2000" "Other location" and "admin[nospam-﹫-backwards]lartnecza­*co­m"

Was that wrong?

This was down the block from me.
Bad shiate happens all the time around my area, but a block the other way, there are huge victorian manors.
Go figure, only in the peg.

Anyone up for a beer at Cousins Deli?

/MMmmmm beer.
