You really didn’t think this one through, did you, Derrick?
Sheriff’s deputies say [Derrick] Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.
But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.
Trying to rob a gun shop with a baseball bat. That kind of genius, friends, is why Derrick Mosely is the major success he is.
I wonder how long it took the cops to stop laughing?
