    Whoops! Not the best partner for a burglary.

    If you are going to break into a house, THIS is not the guy you want to help you:

    HA! HA! Pretty sad when the most hazardous thing about your job is NOT the homeowner's shotgun.

    Why do reporters insist upon using the phrase "pistol whipped?"

    Because the phrase stuck from the gangster movies of the 30's, 40's & 50's. That and it takes so many more keystrokes to write "struck on various parts of his body by the alleged perpetrator who used the handgun as a club".

    stay safe.

    Geez. I thought it meant "overly willing to do things someone else want you to because you really like their pistol and you want to make sure your access is not cut off."

    ROTFL!!!
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    They pistol-whipped one of the residents until his girlfriend reached under the bed for a shotgun and passed it to him.
    Why waste the time??? She should have used it herself, esp. since it was within her reach, not his.

    She was just playing out the stereotype you see from the movies. BG is beating the stuffing outta the hero while his girlfriend puts her hands over her face and screams. When I see this on the TV, I'm usually yelling, "Pick up the shovel and hit him!!" She never does.

    I'm usually mumbling other things, some of them unprintable.
