Not quite the usual Love Boat experience

February 23, 2007

This just in courtesy of Brad: AOL news reports that an elderly man killed an armed mugger while visiting Costa Rica on a cruise. The man, retired military, was travelling with a group of retirees and walking along a beach when the group was accosted by three men. The group disarmed the attackers and one man got the lead crook in a stranglehold before disarming him. Apparently the stranglehold lived up to its name.

The group were cleared by the police who declared it self-defense, stating that the dead mugger was wanted on numerous counts of robbery and assault.

Not letting a little thing like this disturb their vacation, the group continued on the cruise. I can only imagine what would happen if Julie the cruise director gets pushy during shuffleboard.

Let this be a lesson to those who may take the elderly for granted. With experience comes wisdom, and a mean armlock.
