    Caveman stops armed robbery.

    wsbtv.com is reporting...



    Customer 'Caveman' Smith Bashes Robber With Step Ladder

    Posted: 11:29 am EDT April 14, 2009Updated: 1:30 pm EDT April 14, 2009
    ACWORTH, Ga. -- An armed robber ran into one tough customer at an Acworth convenience store Monday.
    The customer bashed the robber with a step ladder during a hold-up at the Conoco store at 5473 North Main Street.

    The robber had pulled a knife, held it against the neck of a clerk and demanded money.
    When the thief tried to leave the store with the cash, customer Don "Caveman" Smith picked up the step ladder and started swinging. He hit the crook at least once, causing him to drop some of the cash, according to Acworth police.
    Channel 2 Action News reporter Ross Cavitt talked to Caveman Smith outside the convenience store and Smith explained why he swung into action.
    "There's a lot of thieving that goes on around here and I don't like it," Smith said. "People work for their stuff and they ought to be able to keep it without somebody taking it away from them."

    What a great quote on this day in April. Caveman 2012!

    But seriously, good on him. Hope he landed a good strike and maybe the imprint of a ladder will come in handy prosecuting the scumbag when he's caught.

    Good job , Caveman.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Good for him. I wish more people were like that
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
