Police say the trainer ran inside the gym as Lacroix took off. The trainer told police he argued with Lacroix the day before about not putting weights away.

He didn't put his weights away? Get him!

He was trying to set off the Lunk Alarm

Did someone forget to wipe down the equipment after using it again?

"Lacroix is charged with aggravated assault with a firearm."

And yesterday he was just another Responsible Gun Owner.

I don't mind when people drop weights as long as they use the rubber pads provided for such activities.  I don't mind some grunting when you are deadlifting twice your own body weight.  I can even let it slide when you ignore urinal rules on the treadmills and get on the one right next to me even though there are dozens available.  I cannot, however, abide a person who leaves their weights unracked after they finish their set.  I didn't put the 80 lbs. dumbbells in the middle of the floor and I sure as hell wont be able to pick em up and put them back without squeezing out a fart.  Just pick the things up already.

Urinal rules on the treadmill? Wow, you guys are dedicated at your exercise. My gym you have to get off and go to the rest room.

Yeah, treadmill rules. Danged if I can figure out what you mistyped as "urinal", though.

Man I think this has got to be well over a decade old now that I think about it. I feel old.

I don't get bothered by cardio machine neighbors, really it's just captain curl spending an hour (non hyperbole) sitting on one of the 4 benches swinging his arms about in an approximation of a curl. Or the lady putting 475 pounds on the front squat lever machine and then proceeding to do 4 inch squats. We'd all be more impressed with a quarter of the weight and correct form.

It's hard to stand your ground on a treadmill.

What thoughts, (or lack thereof) must be going through someone's head that, at the age of 25, they think they can pull a gun on someone in a busy public place and face no consequences?  At the least you'd think they'd worry about getting kicked out of the gym for life, and if they have any shred of intelligence they'd realize that police would be called and an arrest inevitable.  Now this guy likely has no future because he decided to use cave man tactics to solve a petty dispute.  The only break I'd give him is if I learned he was a roid monkey, but even that is no excuse for doing something this stupid.

He's from a background of socialized violence where this kind of behavior is how you would be expected to respond to a confrontation you didn't win.  This is how you defend your, "face," in his social group and he never even thought to consider someone might call the cops because, "That's a biatch move.  In my neighborhood that'd get you shot."

These rules to live by will keep you safe(er) in an urban shiathole.  If you step outside of one though, they'll get you arrested.

Horrible urban neighborhoods will always persist as long as street cultures are allowed to fester.  Gentrification pushing people out of these areas and breaking up those environments with normal humans is the best thing that could happen.

That's when Lacroix, whose occupation is listed as a security guard, pulled out a gun, cocked a round in the chamber and told the trainer he was going to "pistol whip him," according to the report.

Cocked a round in the chamber? I'm no gun person, but that doesn't quite sound like proper terminology...

Also, why would you need to chamber a round if you were just going to pistol-whip someone??
 
2013-11-14 10:51:23 AM  
At least he kept it real, right?

Please don't. I consider my $10/mo gym membership a form of welfare.

Those low rates let people hold onto the "I'm going to start going after the holidays" mentality. I save a fortune and it boosts their sense of self-esteem.

You're doing a great service to your community and I thank you for it.
