    GOOD: Man Brings Knife To Gunfight And Loses - Colorado Springs, CO

    Man who threatened Christians may lose eye - The Denver Post

    A man who came to the home of two women whom he had threatened to decapitate with a knife received a blow to the head that could cost him an eye, according to Colorado Springs police.

    Russell Bowman, who claims to be an atheist, threatened the women because they are Christian on Sept. 8. On Friday, he arrived at their apartment and stood in a hallway, according to a police report.

    "Another resident of the apartment retrieved a shotgun and approached Bowman, who was by then walking away. The resident ordered Bowman to put the knife down," according to the report.

    Bowman refused and approached the resident, who hit him with the butt of the shotgun, injuring his eye.

    "Bowman was treated at Memorial Hospital where it was determined the injury to the eye was so severe, the eye would need to be surgically removed."

    Police will likely pursue charges of felony menacing against Bowman. Police couldn't be reached for comment Sunday.
    Nice ending, hopefully this scumbag learned his lesson. I can't help but wonder how a person's faith could enrage someone to this degree.

    He must not be too smart...If I have a knife, and someone points a SHOTGUN at me and says to put the knife down...me thinks I'll drop the knife. Shotgun trumps knife.

    Obviously he was raised wrong. Not enough hugs or more importantly, not enough Rock/Paper/Scissors.

    Anyone who would advance on a loaded shotgun has a screw loose. You might get hit with a 9 or a .40 and live. You take a 12 gauge from a few feet way that's the end. The dude is a certified nut job.

    I guess this nice Christain person didn't want to take his life. He wouldn't have been so lucky if that would have been me with the shotgun. This guy might not realize it because of his belief, but it sounds to me he had an angel looking out for him that night.
