    Give this guy his Stupid sign?

    I hadda post this for laughs:

    > The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime spree in Washington, DC
    appeared to be the robber's first (and last), due to his lack of a
    previous record of violence, and his terminally stupid choices:
    1. His target was H&J Leather & Firearms; A gun shop
    specializing in handguns.
    2. The shop was full of customers - firearms customers.
    3. To enter the shop, the robber had to step around a marked
    police patrol car parked at the front door.
    4. A uniformed officer was standing at the counter, having
    coffee before work. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber
    announced a hold-up, an d fired a few wild shots from a target pistol.

    The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, the police officer with a
    9mm GLOCK 17, the clerk with a 50 DESERT EAGLE, assisted by several
    customers who also drew their guns, several of whom also drew and fired.
    The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene
    investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The
    subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified
    rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt in the exchange of
    fire. <

    this just proves how stupid some people really are. i'm glad he's gone and hope him and all the other stupid crooks have fun figuring where they went wrong in life.

    Snopes has the story... http://www.snopes.com/crime/dumdum/gunshop.asp

    It was near Seattle Washington, but still ALMOST true! Read the snopes story to see some of the other, shall we say, exaggerations.

    Not entirely true if you read the Snopes article, there was no .50 Desert Eagle, and the numbers of rounds fired and shooters are exaggerated. Still, the premise of the story is true, a guy tried to rob a gunstore and got shot by a worker and cop.

    So....

    This smacks of a suicide and nothing more. I would bet dimes to doughnuts that this guy serious psych problems and inadequate treatment.

    Maybe the customers were simply elite politicians, or cops. You know, our social betters who are allowed to carry guns in D.C.

    I use SNOPES.COM to check a lot of e-mails I receive and stories I hear/read, a great resource. It is a sad story when you stop to think about it. The guy had to be mental or have a death wish. There are PLENTY of ways to leave this world and not involve others. I donít wish anyone to have to take another persons life, even if they deserve it but "you gotta do what you gotta do" if someone is shooting at you.
