Pumpkin Thief Goes Medieval On Fool Who Tried To Stop Him

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Quebec said a supermarket pumpkin thief injured a man who attempted to thwart his crime."


If I saw a man stealing a pumpkin from a supermarket, I`d be surprised that he went to such desperate means to obtain a pumpkin when there`s still plenty of time to get one before Halloween.

I would also say, "There but for the grace of God, go I.", in this struggling economy I`m surprised there aren`t more folks stealing pumpkins, apples, and everything else from supermarkets.

One thing I wouldn`t say to myself is: I should risk a lawsuit, and getting pummeled by the pumpkin thief, and try to stop him from leaving the grocery store with the pumpkin.

The pumpkin thief went Medieval on the fool who tried to thwart his crime, sending him to the hospital with head injuries. I hope the idiot has learned his lesson, and will mind his own business from now on.

The pumpkin thief made a clean getaway with his cherished pumpkin.
