On  February 24, this year, I wrote that Marines “did  not take too kindly to being robbed.”   Well they still don’t.  From the Associated Press:

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Bill Barnes says he was scratching off a losing $2 lottery ticket inside a gas station when he felt a hand slip into his front-left pants pocket, where he had $300 in cash.

He immediately grabbed the person’s wrist with his left hand and started throwing punches with his right, landing six or seven blows before a store manager intervened

For the Associated Press, it is proper to refer to Lee Harvey Oswald and John Murtha as ex-Marines   

More, Blue Crab Boulevard. “Once a Marine.

Jesse RaeAddendum:  Surfed across a picture of the perp.  Doesn’t look too much worse for the wear.
