I think he was pissed

Man, it's just a good thing that this guy didn't have a gun. I believe he was angry enough to shoot somebody.

Police said that the man, identified only as Peter, followed the suspects through a neighborhood and eventually caught up with them. He then rolled his Hummer over their car.

Two of the suspects were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

In this case, the goblins might have been better off if the guy was shooting at them. He might have missed.


If we criminalize Hummers, only criminals will have Hummers.

Hey, I LIVE in Arizona. How did you find out about this before I did?

Oh, and the informal poll is running 85% against the store owner being charged.

I'd like to be on THAT grand jury!

Don't you just love stories with happy endings?

Kevin, I don't believe that ANY jury in your state will press charges against that man. Hell, you people are too much like red-necked Georgians. We would pin a medal on his chest and help pay for his Hummer repairs.

Now you know why the Bush Administration eased the rules on businesses buying expensive SUV's for "business purposes".

It's just so much easier to license a Hummer than it is a Colt M1911.

Cool story. As soon as I quit laughing, I voted "NO" on the "should the Hummer driver be charged" survey. I wish the world was set up to run this way more often. I don't consider that to have "poetic justice", either. It was just plain justice. It's a wonderful example of my #1 creed-"Fuck me? No, fuck YOU..." And then some.

Kevin: I live in New York, and I found out before both of you. ;)

I vote no charges. The s.o.p.'s are lucky he wasn't driving a tank, there would have been no ride to the hospital, but to the morgue.
