Hero Senior Citizen Kills Young Punk Who Knocked Him Off His Bike

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 65-year-old man who was knocked off his bicycle by three teenagers on a Pennsylvania trail shot two of them, killing one, police said according to reports.

The Reading Eagle newspaper said the wounded teen, 16, was taken to hospital and the third, aged 15, was taken in for questioning and was later committed to a youth center."



I am often criticized for focusing on bad news, today I`m trying to balance the scales. If this story doesn`t brighten your morning, check your heart, I think it has stopped beating.

A 65-year-old gentleman is riding his bicycle, exercising and enjoying the scenery. Suddenly he`s knocked off his bicycle, and assaulted by three cowardly teenagers.

The surviving teens should be charged with attempted murder, the old man could have died when he was knocked off his bike. The three savages weren`t content to knock him off his bike, they beat the old guy when he was on the ground trying to regain his senses.

Usually in this kind of a scenario, the victim is rushed to the hospital with serious injuries, and the perps receive a slap on the wrist, if they are apprehended.

But like I said this is a feel-good story with a happy ending, this time one of the perps is shot dead by the victim, another ends up in the hospital in serious condition, and the other punk is arrested and committed to a youth center.

The elderly gent was released by police after they consulted with a District Attorney; I told you this story would brighten your morning.

Moral of this story: Get a license to carry a concealed weapon, and shoot to kill if your life is in danger.
