... OR two eight year olds iwth baseball bats pwn a grown man with a gun

From the Orlando Sentinel

Authorities say two 8-year-olds used baseball bats to stop an armed man who had threatened to kill a woman in Alachua County.

Charles Arby Bradley is facing several charges, including battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held in the county jail.

I don't think this is going to help his status in prison

Good job, guys......too many folks would have just tried to reason with this guy, and gotten mom and them killed, very likely.......though a baseball bat really IS a form of 'diplomacy'. ;)

"A weapon," as Lois Bujold said "is a tool for making the enemy change his mind."

Touche!

And diplomacy, i've heard it said (though I can't cite a source), is talking nicely to the growling rabid dog until you can find a ROCK BIG ENOUGH TO SMASH HIS HEAD IN!
