    So here's a heartwarming story about a man who defended himself and the other customers of an internet cafe against two armed robbers.

    What gets me about this story is that the two perpetrators posted bail and were immediately released! There's all the talk about reducing gun violence and yet armed criminals are released immediately? Why were they allowed to post bail?

    I think what coop44 is trying to say is some of us members( including myself) are sensitive about our age.:bluelaugh:

    Geezerswithguns looks like an available website!

    They are out on bail because criminals like these serve a useful purpose. They scare the sheep into submission so they'll cry to mommy government for protection and help. Fodder to be repeated 50x on the evening 'news' IF it would have been a COP taking those shots. Since it was a citizen, it won't make even a 2x repeat.

    My best guess on why they were allowed to post bail was so the police department/sheriff's office don't get stuck with the medical bills. I know that we wouldn't send a warrant or parole hold out until we confirmed that the offender was not in the hospital to avoid the medical bills. There are some rare occasions where exceptions were made but not many.

    While you cannot change your race (unless you're Michael Jackson), we all are getting old, one day at a time.

    They were allowed to post bail because all they got hit with was a. 380.

    Nothing says "bail denied" quite like a. 357 Magnum.

    Perhaps certain postings should include Closed Captioning for the Humor Impaired.
