We've Got A Madman On The Loose


I've been thinking about this story all morning, and then it hit me: We've got a freakin' Charles Manson type on the loose. How else can you explain a robbery in front of an office occupied by the United States Marine Corp? I've seen Full Metal Jacket. Those guys are nuts. And with all this post traumatic stress disorder going on, it doesn't take much to set them off these days. They would have loved to opened up a can of vigilante justice on whomever committed this heinous crime (a person, by the way, who probably had a bad childhood, but I digress.) Anyway, the alleged robber is either MHMR certifiable crazy or a member of the Taliban. Either way, we're screwed.

I'm raising the Terror Level in Wise County to burnt orange. Be on double triple alert as of noon.

But I'm a little disturbed by the lack of sensitivity from the Messenger on this deal. "Only" his wallet was taken?. "Only?" Unless the victim was left with a Rolex watch and a two carat stud earring, I'd say losing a wallet is a pretty big deal. Probably a bunch of liberal weenies over there that don't understand how hard it is to make a buck in the good ol' U S of A.
