Wrong Victim

Maybe some folks in Atlanta, three now in jail one in the morgue, will think twice before trying to assault and rob someone.

(From the AP via Washington Post)

ATLANTA -- Former Marine cook Thomas Autry, 36, fatally stabbed one teenager and wounded a second while fending off a robbery by a group of youths armed with two guns and a pair of brass knuckles, police said. Amy Martin, 17, was pronounced dead at a hospital, and Christopher Daniel, 17, was in critical
condition, police said.

Chalk one up for the Marines in this one. According to the longer version of the story he started by kicking the shotgun out of one guys hands, and then stabbing the girl when she jumped on his back.

The four assailants fled when Miss Martin was stabbed, and found later by the police at a hospital.

When I read this story, all I could think was 'good for him'! But, I was afraid they would charge him. So glad they are not!

Gosh, CP; don't those criminals know how to treat a lady? You don't abandon her to "an evil Marine"!! Cowards.
Laurels for Autry. He doesn't need to be remorseful; he was protecting himself from a ruthless gang of human-wanna-be's.

Good for him! Heh, that crime didn't pay. Maybe this will send a message to some others.
