SAS trooper stabbed by a shoplifter...

Recommended Posts

An SAS trooper collecting toys for children was stabbed when he helpedstop a suspected shoplifter.

 

The 'Toys-R-Us' Store Manager said that a man was seen onsurveillance cameras last Friday putting a laptop under his jacket at the store.When confronted, the man became irate, knocked down an employee, pulled a knife and ran toward the door.Outside were four SAS Troopers collecting toys for the "Toys For Tots" program.

 

Smith said the Troopers stopped the man, but he stabbed one of them, in the back.

 

The cut did not appear to be severe.

 

The suspect was transported by ambulance to the Hospital with two broken arms, a broken leg, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions and assorted lacerations including a broken nose and jaw...

 

Injuries he apparently sustained when he tripped whilst trying to run after the stabbing.

 

One of the Troopers said, "He was a clumsy bar steward."

It doesn't matter who he stabbed..there should be a mandatory Jail Sentence for ANYONE caught with a Knife in public

LOL!

 

When I work as loss-prevention at a prominent electronics store in the early 90s our policy was to not engage any shoplifter who became physical and or elected to run (read: don't pursue)

 

... I apparently had excellent "luck" as every one of my apprehensions came as a result of a "slip and fall" by the shoplifter. :dntknw:

 

Apparently the SAS fellas have excellent luck and or the shoplifter had exceptionally poor luck dependent upon ones perspective.

 

Regardles, Good-on-them! :drinks:

I disagree. I carry one everywhere I go. It's not the weapon that's dangerous. Its the bloody wanker holding it.

Dave, its said that over in the UK, they can only carry spoons in public. Or have their spoons been "restricted" as well? How far they have fallen.

 

There's a reason the Blade Comparative Evaluation (B.C.E.) scene in that Croc Dundee movie was so popular.

Thats a silly comment.

 

I'm kicking 50 yrs old now...I don't know anyone who has been stabbed or shot....The statistics speak for themselves.... I don't consider that as "How far they have fallen"....I call that a Result!...If you consider how many people in the US who have lost their lives, from gunshot wounds a good thing..then pity you

The most dangerous weapon in the US is the automobile.

 

Unfortunately, the licensing program is wholly inadequate to weed out the offenders.

50yrs without stabbing or shooting...wow. I've been on this Earth for 25 years and there has been several shootings in my area alone. A father shot is daughter in the face down the road from me some years ago(he mistaked his daughter for his cheating wife) some other punk kids got shot and few blocks away from me not too long ago either. When I was 10 there was a driveby in my area fast foward a few years and somone did a walkby on neighbors house. And I live in a nice peaceful town compared to others that have four or five triple homocides a weekend.

 

Personally if it gets worse where I am then I'm getting myself an M249 with lots of ammo.

Would that be with or without a woman behind the wheel?

I don't think it matters when there are cellphones or passengers they MUST converse with involved. Or drugs or alcohol.

That's a silly comment, but yea I did poast a silly comment; a popular joke here in USA about Britts restricted to spoons only, which may be wrong. Sorry about that. If I recall, there are blade length restrictions, but short knives are allowed -- or was that another country like NZ or somewhere. I don't recall.

Glad to hear that the SAS guy will be OK.

 

Side note for Dave-> In NH I believe the bill has passed that no longer requires a permit to carry concealed, don't think it's been signed into law yet though.
