Wanted for questioning.

He will probably sue for assault and win.

DOes anyone else think it's funny when someone gets caught red-handed, gets arrested at the scene of the crime and still gets referred to as the "suspect"?

I know, I know - innocent until proven guilty in a court of law - but I still think it's rather odd to see the person referred to as a "suspect"
2007-06-07 04:40:19 PM  
too bad this wasn't Paris or Lohan, the police might have just left and let the family beat them to death.
2007-06-07 04:40:46 PM  
That should be "scene of the alleged crime".

Family of vampires it seem.

Chinese vampires.

That bounce around!

No HERO tag?

That's what I'm talking about!!!!

In my house if that was to happen it would have been WWE style.

that makes no sense.
2007-06-07 04:45:25 PM  
They bit his ear? That IS hardcore.

Hinesville is the home of Ft Stewart and the 3rd ID.

Wonder if this braintrust crook scoped out the houses to make sure it wasn't home to a big bad soldier, then gets ripped a new one by the fry cook.

/he never knew what Wu could do

Hey, at least the crook was smart enough to not do it in Kennesaw Georgia....,_Georgia
2007-06-07 04:48:48 PM  
That intruder would be dead in my house. How in the hell would I know that the gun he was pointing at me was a pellet gun. If it looks like a gun, I am shooting first, asking questions later. So that was incredibly stupid on his part.

Whack him with a shovel??

heh heh you said whack!
2007-06-07 04:53:42 PM  
Oh that poor man. First driven to crime by an uncaring society, and then abused even more. What happened to the Compassion Society?

/Yeah right.
//Way to GOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Wow... Sounds like an episode of Wu-Ni-toons.
2007-06-07 04:56:41 PM  
As a note, don't fark with oriental families. Everyone I have heard of involved in something like this has resulted in the perp getting their butts handed to them.
2007-06-07 04:57:15 PM  
One of the best I've heard was a mugger that was hospitalized by a SCAdian.

With a rattan 'sword'.
2007-06-07 04:57:34 PM  
Rolle was treated at a hospital for scratches and a bite on his ear and then taken to jail. ... Wu Ni was treated at the scene for cuts and a bite on his arm.

I've never been robbed (knock on wood) is this much biting common during a robbery?

And the wife got into the action and was the one about to bust his ass with a shovel. This guy was in the rong place at the rong time.

"That uppity n***** done went and hit me on the head with a shovel! And I'd shore 'preciate it if you'd find it in your heart to hang him up by his neck 'til he was dead!"

I began cracking up when a mental image formed in my head of the cartoon gimmick where there's just a big cloud of smoke with arms, legs, and stars flying out of it.
2007-06-07 05:14:28 PM  
fool me once, shame on you
fool me twice, shame on Wu

Damn you Badafuco!

What's the point of CCW when you can just beat someone up with an unconcealed shovel?

Firearms are overrated.

Dodgson11: He will probably sue for assault and win.

That's why the "victim" should have raped and/or tortured the robber. If you're going to exercise "self defense," you should have fun doing it, because heaven knows every Internet tough guy out there beats off to the fantasy of being able to defend themselves in a situation like this.
2007-06-07 05:45:58 PM  
Someone post that Russian guy from Sopranos
2007-06-07 05:51:23 PM  
This guy should consider himself lucky. If you pointed a gun at my family member and you got subdued, I wouldn't have gone to the shed.

I would've ended up in the kitchen with my hand in the knife drawer and you the crook would've ended up with a punctured organ.

He will probably sue for assault and win.

Doubt it. Assuming a lawyer even takes that case, they'd probably be fine given the circumstances.
2007-06-07 06:54:43 PM  
Did he bring out the Gimp?
2007-06-07 07:24:30 PM  
I remember when Richard Ramirez was caught in east l.a. the locals were beating him with a 6' piece of rebar. good times

All is right in one little corner of the world, at least for a moment.
