You Damned Kids Better Stay off his Lawn!

Police: U.S. seniors fight off muggers, killing one - CNN.com: "SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -- A tour group of U.S. senior citizens fought off a band of muggers in eastern Costa Rica, sending two of the assailants fleeing and killing a third, police said Thursday.

One of the tourists -- a retired U.S. serviceman whom officials estimated was in his 70s -- allegedly put Warner Segura in a headlock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus Wednesday, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose."

WTF? One of the reasons I want to retire to Costa Rica is the low crime rate, especially violent crime. Maybe this'll teach those bad Ticos not to mess with Americans.

Especially Geezer-Americans.

On the other hand, if one of their punks can be killed by a 70-year old's bare hands, what have I got to worry about? Bring 'em on!
