Seniors Strike Back

Let's hear it for the seniors again.

A pickpocket thought he had an easy target in a 72 year old man, Bill Barnes. Unfortunately for the pickpocket, Mr. Barnes is a former Marine and Golden Gloves runner-up. He pummeled Jesse Daniel Rae who was then arrested on robery charges. Mr. Barnes said he wouldn't want his wife to give him hell for letting that guy get his money.

That reminds me of the time several years ago when someone tried to mug my father who was probably around 68 at the time. The "mugger" asked for a match, when my father took it from his pocket, the mugger tried to grab my father's money. Instead, my father, also an ex-boxer, just swung his arm and sent the mugger flying.

We cheer loudly, and deservedly so, for these two potential male victims who triumphed over the evil who is the attacker of the elderly.. Let's hope to catch the creeps who have already harmed their lady victims, and some of their other male victims. Would you like to live inside their skins?
