    Bernie Goetz without the baggage....

    Subway.... Eat Lead!


    PLANTATION -- One gunman is dead and another is in critical condition after they tried to rob a sandwich store and were shot by an armed customer Wednesday night, authorities said.

    Well, two minor differences from Bernard Goetz. Goetz shot four unarmed kids. And unlike this guy, Goetz was illegally armed. But other than that, it's the same thing.

    They tried to rob the customer and he was legally packing, so there you go.

    Simon: Gotta love this. Put in the same situation, or anything similar, I would not -- to quote the late, great Apollo Creed, "Drop 'em like a bad habit!"

    You ever had someone pull a shanked screwdriver on you to do you harm?

    I figured not.

    Playing the result in that no innocent bystanders were hit, I never had a problem with Goetz doing what he did.

    Fucking ... leave.... me ... alone.

    Or you will get plugged.

    Good for the guy who was legally packing. And, he was 71 years old.

    I hope they give him a ticker-tape parade.

    No one pulled a "shanked screwdriver" on Bernard Goetz.

    it's a lot wider spread than 20-1, it's closer to 100-1, at a minimum.

    I'll patiently await your posting of the stats that prove the contention of your thread title.
