    4 knives found in fake leg lead to man's arrest in Fort Pierce

    Good: He was ready to protect himself
    Bad : No concealed weapons permit because of being a felon!

    By ANA X. CERON Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Tuesday, April 29, 2008

    FORT PIERCE A homeless man is in jail on a charge of possessing a weapon after he allegedly went to a hospital and handed over several weapons, including four knives hidden in the hollow of his prosthetic leg.

    Two police officers were dispatched Saturday to Lawnwood Medical Center and Heart Institute regarding a patient with concealed weapons.

    When they got there, a police report states, a nurse said he had removed a loaded revolver, 23 rounds of ammunition and four knives from patient Jerry Moody, 64.

    Fire-rescue officials had picked up the man from a truck stop. When he arrived at the emergency room, Moody alerted staff that he was armed, the nurse said.

    The knives - two pocket knives and two steak knives - were in the hollow of his prosthetic leg, the nurse told officers.

    Moody said he was homeless and has been attacked before, police say. He said "he doesn't care what he has to do, he is going to protect himself," the report states.

    Because he didn't have a concealed weapons permit and Moody is a convicted felon, he was arrested, police said.

    Just curious as to how fast someone could access a knife hidden inside their fake leg. hmmmm?
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    I used to live in Fort Pierce.

    I'm not surprised.

    Does it really matter where you are in Florida? It's all insane down here. It's why we need good gun laws.

    Well, actually, yeah. It does matter. There are some hellholes in FL. And some places are as close to paradise as you can get on this earth (unless the hurricanes are coming).
