  • The thief ran off with the printer but Price hopes his attacker learned a valuable lesson.

    So he risked his life over a printer, and didn't get it back or catch the bad guy. Needs much more dumbass tag.

    He managed to stab him in the side. Might be worth it depending on the type of printer

    I'm sure the police will be canvassing the ERs in the area looking for someone with this particular injury.

    If it's a dot matrix printer, you'd best believe that I'll risk life and limb for that ish.
  • An $80 printer for me does not rise to "worth dying or killing someone for". Potentially lethal action is reserved for when I, someone in my family, or an innocent person are at immediate risk of injury.
  • Hard to say from the article, but it sounds to me like the knife didn't really come out until the guy was confronted. Still possibly not the smartest thing in the world to do, but he didn't necessarily pick a fight with a guy who was already brandishing a knife at him.
  • To all those saying that it wasn't worth the risk. Do you know how much printer ink costs?!?!
  • Justified risk given the cost of ink cartridges...
  • He picked the wrong wigger the fark with!


    /sorry, been listening to drum-n-bass all day and just finished working out
    //about 23 minutes ago...
  • Joke's on the thief; that printer was almost out of ink.
  • Damn you, farkers!

    /shakes tiny fist
  • We're here for the free dismemberment.
    Huh uh uh!
  • Have they canvassed the area within a 26 minute drive from the gym?
  • I call BS.  Why was the printer (that he "got for Christmas"-which is irrelevant but mentioned twice) still in the car if he came to drop it off?
  • He is not a hero, unless he is a) enlisted, or b) a chicken.
  • TheHighlandHowler: I call BS.  Why was the printer (that he "got for Christmas"-which is irrelevant but mentioned twice) still in the car if he came to drop it off?


    ...or why would the perp drop the knife but not the more cumbersome printer?

    And why would they report that he picked up the knife, but had to defend against a possible neck of face stabbing himself? Did the guy brandish 2 knives somehow?
  • being desperate does funny things to people.

    personally i think the guy should have let the printer go, and said merry xmas, it would have done more damage to the thiefs conscience than any stab in the side would have.

    besides, taking on someone with a knife regardless of your physical strength is pretty stupid, scars last forever, and the ones through thick muscle hurt forever, as any body builder who has had an operation will surely tell you.

    the only time you should ever get in a scuffle when your attacker has a weapon is if you have absolutely no choice.

    This and that.

    Something off kilter here.
  • Has the meaning of "fit" changed to include "doughy" recently?
  • so stabbed in the side and carrying a printer he got away,,,
    sounds like he is in shape

    I think someone mentioned this already, but it sounds like the gym owner approached the person messing about with his car, and then the that person pull out a knife. Most thieves don't have a guilty conscience; if anything, if the gym owner had done what you suggest, the thief would have laughed & told his friends how much of an idiot pussy the guy was for saying 'merry christmas' when he was being stolen from.

    This guy was incredibly fortunate. He came away unscathed against a 3 armed Ninja with a stab wound in his side that was able to retreat with his the victim's printer. I am no Joe Friday, but I think this case is closed.

    But check the pawn shops to be sure
