Don't Mess With An Ex-Marine

...That piece of advice is obvious, but one Warner Segura did not heed- he was attempting to mug some OAPs when one 71 year old killed grabbed and him with his bare hands.

The Unnamed Ex-Marine put suspect Warner Segura in a headlock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of the Atlantic coast city of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose.

The two other men fled when the 12 senior citizens started defending themselves during the Wednesday attack. Afterward, the tourists drove Segura to the Red Cross where he was declared dead, apparently from asphyxiation.

The tourists left on their Carnival cruise ship after the incident and Hernandez said authorities do not plan to press any charges against them. “They were in their right to defend themselves after being held up,” said Hernandez who added that Segura had previous charges against him for assaults.

I can see it now as the evening news has it as one of their hilarious "And Finally" pieces.

Lt.Col,"The Unnamed Ex-Marine?", you of all people should know that there is no such thing as an Ex-Marine. A lot of taxpayers hardearned cash went into making this old boy one of the most feared life taking machines ever known to man. A US Marine, decades later its go to see that the training is still paying off, now thats an efficent use of taxpayers dollars.

If only all the other taxpayer dollars could be used as efficiently.
