    Watch out boys!!! From the Denver Post, 6/09/08

    PUEBLO, Colo.—Pueblo police are looking for two people in connection with the armed robbery of a man while he was mowing his lawn.

    Police Officer Phillip Hartman says a girl about 17 years old approached the man Saturday afternoon and asked for $2. The 68-year-old man first refused, but eventually gave money to the girl.

    She walked away and talked to a boy who appeared to be a juvenile, and he then asked the man for money.

    The male suspect showed a knife after the girl threatened the man's life, then emptied the victim's wallet of $26.

    The two suspects fled on foot.

    I pack a machete. A head on a stake, torched with gasoline is much more gratifying for me. For those of you with guns: rock on!! I totally support the 2ND Amendment.:angry:

    I would have chased his and her a** with my mower and extended reach chainsaw. I wouldn't have needed a gun. I would have chopped them up.

    About two months ago there was a lady who sold fruit on the side of the road, that was robbed and killed for less than one hundred dollars. I mean out of all people your killing a poor helpless human being who is struggling just as much as anybody.

    Why should we have to pay for this scum trial, housing and health insurance? What is fair about that? I say eliminate his appeals and fire up "Ole Sparky" better yet shoot him and we can save money on the electric bill.

    Sometimes, the 50 cent solution is the best one.
