Don’t mess with vets:*

One of the tourists — a retired member of the U.S. military aged about 70 — put assailant Warner Segura in a head lock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus Wednesday, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose.

The two other men fled when the 12 senior citizens started defending themselves. The tourists then drove Segura to the Red Crosswhere the man was declared dead. The Red Cross also treated one of the tourists for an anxiety attack, Hernandez said.

I’m sorry the mugger died – armed robbery, after all, is not a capital offense – but damned proud of a man 70 years of age that can stand up and defend himself when the time comes.

Maybe we should send these guys over to Walter Read * when they get home. Straighten things out.
