Costa Rican Muggers No Match For Gringo Retirees

Quien es mas macho now, hombre?

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — A tour bus of U.S. senior citizens defended themselves against a group of alleged muggers, sending two of them fleeing and killing a third in the Atlantic coast city of Limon, police said on Thursday.
One of the tourists _ a retired member of the U.S. military aged about 70* _ put assailant Warner Segura in a head lock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus Wednesday, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose.
…The tourists left on their Carnival cruise after the incident and Hernandez said authorities do not plan to press any charges against them, saying they acted in self defense.
“They were in their right to defend themselves after being held up,” Hernandez said.

I like this police chief, too. We could use his type in some places here.

    Not yet, you mean. Give him a little time.

    What a heartwarming story! The robber might as well have died. It would have been hell to live with being a 20-year-old whupped by a 70-year-old.
    “¿Quién es macho?” is right: What’s could be more macho than a superannuated tourist killing a violent yute with his bare hands? Sweet!
