    Orville Smith, a store manager for Best Buy in Augusta, Ga., told police he observed a male customer, later identified as Tyrone Jackson of Augusta, on surveillance cameras putting a laptop compupter under his jacket. When confronted, the man became irate, knocked down an emmployee, drew a knife and ran for the door.

    Outside on the sidewalk were four Marines collecting for the Toys for Tots program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of the Marines, Cpl. Phillip Duggan, in the back;the injury did not appear to be severe.

    After Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene, Cpl. Duggan was transported for treatment.

    "The subject was also transported to the local hospital with two broken arms, a broken ankle, a broken leg, several missing teeth, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions, assorted lacerations, a broken nose and a broken jaw...injuries he sustained when he slipped and fell off of the curb after stabbing the Marine," according to a Police report.

    This urban legend regularly comes around this time of year. Do you prefer the USMC or the SAS (Australian) version.

    Some truth, some wishful thinking. See link.

    For the Snopesphobic and those that worry about a George Soros bogeyman under their beds, an article from the Augusta Chronicle is at the link.

    In part -

    "Cyberspace has been abuzz since last November about Attaway supposedly being beaten to a pulp by some Marines, and implications that the police covered it up by reporting that his supposed multiple fractures and other injuries occurred after merely stepping off a curb.

    Or, according to the Internet, it might have happened in Australia. And his name might have been Tyrone Jackson. And it might have been a Toys “R” Us.

    Of course, the plain truth – which won’t make as much noise on the Web as have the Paul Bunyan tall tales – is that Attaway is a guilty-as-sin armed robber and inveterate blight on society with 30 arrests in his past who tried to conceal himself amid the hubbub of the year’s busiest shopping day to steal property armed with a knife, with which he gashed a young Marine serving his country and community in the Toys for Tots program.

    Thankfully, Richmond County jurors heard the facts, not Internet fiction, in a trial this week, and after just an hour of deliberation found him guilty on all counts, including armed robbery and aggravated assault. Testimony indicated the Marines merely held Attaway for authorities, even after he’d stabbed their comrade. Testimony indicated no injuries to Attaway, and his defense lawyer never broached such a thing at trial."

    Mrs. Keet will surely step off a curb soon.

    John,

    Mrs. Keet is actually a Sandusky wannabee. Sadly, she got kicked out of Bryn Mawr for groping one of her lesbian schoolmates before groping became chic. The schoolmate, as it turned out, was a freshman from Valdosta, GA. and everybody knows that cracker dykes don't put up with pushy Yankee bulls. If "The Mrs." ever tells you that the deviated septum and the limp were the result of a fall from a "curb" outside some fictional retail store, be kind, she's not the gal she used to be.

    Those CURBS are dangerous if you LOSE your footing.

    Congratulations to the MARINES.

    Too bad the MARINES were not in the shower at PENN STATE w/ SANDUSKY and YOUTH.

    Those shower floors are slippery w/soap and water.
