Elderly ex-marine kills mugger with his bare hands

    The USMC needs to track down this guy's identity and sign him up for a recruiting campaign, stat! :D


    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica–A vacationing U.S. senior citizen killed an alleged mugger with his bare hands, and his travelling companions aboard a tour bus fended off two other assailants in the Atlantic coast city of Limon, police said.

    The group of about a dozen cruise-ship passengers were climbing out of their vehicle Wednesday when the masked trio – one with a gun, the others with knives – attacked.

    Suddenly, one of the tourists, a former U.S. marine in his 70s, pounced on the gunman and put him in a headlock, breaking his collarbone before eventually killing him, according to Limon police chief Luis Hernandez.

    "His neck was completely snapped," Hernandez said.

    Glad it happened over in Costa Rica. Over there right now they're probably having one hell of a party in his honor, but if it happened here? The estate of the asshole that tried to mug him would sue him for denying said assholes civil rights.....and win.

    I'm not sure anybody who kills a man with his bare hands can be classified as "elderly," regardless of age.

    When you're 70 and you kill someone 20 years your junior with five fingers of death, calling the guy elderly is being very kind. In my neighborhood, he'd be affectionately known as "Killer."
