    Assault on an elderly person (that just subdued you)... that's insult to injury right there.

    Bravo Mr. Storley!! That's the way to do it - act and act decisively.

    I love how it turned out. This BG's going to be getting healthy ration when he makes Florida's equivalent to a trip up the river.

    Marine and ex-cop; Sounds like he was well prepared and capable. Well done!

    Funny!

    Quote from video;

    Because he shoved Storely, he's also being charged with assault and battery on an elderly person.

    HahaHaHaHa!

    I don't think the GG was armed.

    I remember my 70 year old uncle beat the crap out of two young punks who were trying to break into his car. Broke several ribs and knocked one guy out. Broke the other guys nose, cheekbone, arm and gave him a concussion. They tried to take him to court and charge him with assault. The judge looked at the old man, and the two young guys, and threw them out of court.

    Well, I am 75 and doubt that I would have attempted to disarm the robber, I would have stuck my pocket friend in his right ear and if he took exception, I would have let my friend do it's thing.

    Job well done by the Marine
