Greetings fellow Bizarros:
There are too many guns in America, at least from this guy's point of view. After pulling off what sounds like a slick, little 'snatch-and-grab' he was confronted with one of America's biggest problems; too many guns.
The incident began when 36-year-old Christopher Raymond Hill, entered the liquor store at Walmart in Florida and asked if he can exchange a $20 for smaller bills. The employee informed Hill that he would have to buy something in order to get change from the $20 bill.
Hill then bought a pack of cigarettes, but when the cashier opened the register, he jumped on the counter, he grabbed the cash register and ran out of the store.
In the parking lot, Hill got into a car where a man was sitting with his family. Hill pulled out a knife and ordered the husband to drive him to where he needed to go.
But when the victim pulled out his gun in self-defense, Hill fled. He then went to another car and tried to get another man to drive him away from the crime scene.
This victim also pulled out a gun, scaring the knife-wielding robber.
Hill fled on foot across the street where he barricaded himself in the bathroom of a Supercuts store. Police were eventually able to arrest Hill.
He was taken into custody on charges of strong-arm robbery, carjacking with a firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing.

*---- Basic Driving Skills Defeat Car Thief ----*
Security cameras outside a Pennsylvania home were rolling when an attempted truck thief was foiled by his inability to make a three-point turn. The Bensalem Police Department posted a video showing the man attempting to steal a pickup truck, which had been left unlocked in a driveway with the keys inside. The man attempts to make a three-point turn around the car parked behind the truck, but repeatedly hits the other vehicle. The would-be thief eventually gets out of the truck and flees on foot

A couple traveling on a Florida highway captured video of a driver using some kind of device to cover their license plate while going through a toll booth. The video, recorded on eastbound Highway 836 in Miami, shows the Chrysler Pacifica traveling in front of the filmer's vehicle when a black cover descends to conceal its license plate from toll booth cameras. The couple said they reported the driver to the Florida Highway Patrol. "I was told by the Florida State Troopers that this is not the first time this driver has committed this crime," the woman wrote.

I remember reading a story once (not in BN) where someone was caught trying to steal a game console and the homeowner offered to sell it to the thief instead. -Chris
The woman who was caught breaking into homes while the residents were at a funerals must be a subscriber to Hulu. That was a plot of a Dragnet episode years and years ago. -Mark, Montana
LEWIS; Oh golly gee isn't it common for young couples to want to get it on in unusual places such as a beach, a football stadium or a fire station? Haven't many of us done so in out youth? However this couple indeed screwed up filming their experience and then putting it on a public medium. tsk tsk tsk. -R.S.
