A friend, apparently concerned about my weight, sent me something yesterday that I can only assume was calculated to put me off my feed, just before the turkey came out of the oven:
2 men rob Indiana home with paralyzed man in bedI don't have family-friendly words to describe the evil thugs who would prey on the disabled, so I won't even try. Instead, I'll simply remind them that some of us can fight back--with deadly force, and without hesitation.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Police say a paralyzed man was unable to get out of his bed while two men robbed his St. Joseph County home.
Police say the robbery occurred west of the South Bend city limits on Sunday evening.
They say one of the robbers placed a T-shirt over the paralyzed man's face.
The men broke into the home by breaking a rear window.
After placing the shirt over the homeowner's face, they stole his laptop and a $100 bill on a dresser.
After the robbers left, the victim says he was unable to call police or close the window that had been broken.
A friend who stopped by the home was able to call police.
That's not, by the way, intended (at all) as criticism of the victim in this case--it sounds as if he is quadriplegic, and would thus be unable to defend himself with a firearm.
*The "word to the wise" doesn't really apply here, because "wise" is something these creatures are clearly not. To quote Bill Cosby:
A word to the wise ain't necessary -- it's the stupid ones that need the advice.
