By SBG San Antonio

Any resemblance to The Blue Oyster is purely coincidental.

SAN ANTONIO — A security guard shot a man early Saturday morning after he was put in a choke hold during a fight with a patron.

Authorities were called to Club Essence at about 12:45 a.m. for reports of a shooting. Police said a patron was asked to leave the downtown bar because he was highly intoxicated and bothering others. The man was escorted by a security guard after he began arguing. Once the man was in the parking lot he started fighting the security guard. His friend jumped in and put the security guard in a choke hold, police said. The security guard fired one shot striking the friend’s belly.

Cleveland store owner, employee shoot at armed duo during robbery

By Adam Ferrise
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The owner of a Cleveland grocery store and his 70-year-old employee shot at two armed robbers, forcing the duo out of their store, police reports say.

No one was hurt in the shooting that happened with five young children between the ages of 4 and 14 inside, according to police reports.

The robbery happened about 7 p.m. Thursday at the Paul’s Serve Rite Food Market on Central Avenue and East 46th Street in the city’s Central neighborhood.
The two robbers walked in the store with hoods pulled tight over their heads and scarves covering their faces, police reports say.

The 59-year-old store owner and 70-year-old employee repeatedly told the duo to take off their hoods, police reports say. The two refused, pulled out gun and demanded money from the cash register, according to police reports.

A 46-year-old employee working the register handed the man the cash drawer that had about $80 in it, police reports say.

The 70-year-old employee saw the robbers with guns out and pulled out his gun, police reports say. He fired four shots at the robbers, according to police reports.

The store owner pulled out his gun and fired a shot, police reports say. Both robbers ran out of the store and went different directions, police reports say.

Todays tally is 0 / 3 / 3, with no morts, three hospitalized or otherwise inconvenienced, and three in the wind. Keep the faith, TAHer’s. Think of it as the Triple Crown the horsey set likes so much. It doesn’t happen often, but it’s pretty cool when it does.

    Prayers, good thoughts and wishes for a speedy and complete recovery to the injured homeowner.
    Not so much for the shot up thieves. May they get blood sepsis from their high speed lead pellet infusion.

    I certainly hope that some find a “feel good” from this service of Justice.

    Given the number of US folks, including servicefolks, killed by Red terrorism, I am sure that some of the older members of this forum wil take a certain satisfaction from the delivery of this Red Yahoo to Gaol.

      Left-wing Italian terrorist, convicted of murder, arrives in Rome to serve life sentence


      ROME – A left-wing Italian militant who was convicted of murder three decades ago has arrived in Rome to serve a life prison sentence, after his life as a celebrity fugitive came to an abrupt end with his arrest in Bolivia by a team of Interpol agents.

      An Italian military aircraft carrying Cesare Battisti landed at Rome’s Ciampino airport shortly after 11:30 a.m. local time on Monday, as snipers kept watch. Italy’s justice and interior ministers, who have rejoiced that Battisti’s victims will finally see justice, were on hand to turn him over to prison authorities.

      Battisti was arrested Saturday in Santa Cruz, Bolivia’s largest city, where he was located by intelligence agents after using one of his mobile devices. Italy sent an aircraft to bring him home for the first time since he fled in 1981 as he awaited trial and dodged extradition by claiming to sympathetic left-wing governments on both sides of the Atlantic that he was a political refugee.

      Thanks again, 11B.

            The big start to all this now a days terrorist crap. Munich ’72, the Bader/Meinhof (sp) Gang, The Red Army Faction. Got to where you couldn’t go downtown without a full squad or rifle platoon. And then the bastards would be throwing molotovs over the wire or trying to blow up the clubs. Remember we lost people to these fools.

            When we got alerted at the start of the whole Yom Kipper War in “73, the First Shit and Battery Commander commented privately that we ought to “turn the keys” on the launchers and nuke the fukkers. Maybe we shoulda had.

            Guess most of them went deep when the wall and curtain came down. Prolly still a few of the rats in the wood work somewhere.
