    They Picked The Wrong Dude To Rob!

    THEY PICKED THE WRONG DUDE TO ROB!
    found at: biblicalevangelist.org and written by: Dr. Robert L. Sumner

    Recently a couple of masked thugs - Donicio Arrindell, age 22, and Frederick Gadson, age 21 - decided to rob a Subway Sandwich Shop in Plantation (FL), a little town of about 5,000 due west of Fort Lauderdale, just off I-595. It looked like a safe time, shortly before midnight and only one patron was dining at a table, an elderly gentleman.

    After cleaning out the cash register, the hoods decided the old man finishing his meal would be easy pickings, too, and herded him into the men's room where they helped themselves to his wallet. What they didn't know was that this "old man" was John Lovell, an ex-Marine who had served as pilot for two Presidents, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, and was a gentleman who not only had a Second Amendment right to bear arms, he knew how to use them.

    Although 71-years of age, Lovell works out at the gym every day, doesn't smoke or use alcohol, and remains very adept at handling himself. After they got his money, the ex-Marine pulled out his business piece and opened fire, hitting both men - each in the head and one in the chest. When police arrived they found one sprawled on the floor and the other one the K-9 dogs found hiding outside in the bushes. Both were taken to the Broward General Medical Center, where Arrindell died and Gadson remained in critical but stable condition at the time of this writing.

    As Police Detective Bob Rettig explained, "These criminals ought to realize that most men in their 70s have military backgrounds and aren't intimidated by idiots. Something tells me this old Marine wasn't 'in fear' even though his life was definitely at risk ... And he better not be charged! More like rewarded." Then he added, "The only thing he could be charged with is partaking in an unfair fight - one 71-year-young Marine against two punks." Authorities verified he would not be charged, but no mention was made of a reward.

    Before you post:



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
