"I Could Not Let That Pass:" Soldier Kicks Bank Robber's Ass

Pointing a gun at a soldier's kids?.

You fail at crime.

He waved his gun toward Peoples, who is black, and warned that "the big black guy" shouldn't try to stop him. Before fleeing the bank, he pointed the gun at Peoples' kids, Ikaika and Kioni. "The kid will get it" if anyone messed with him, Rogers said, according to the Herald-Tribune.

"I could not let that pass," Peoples said.

As the robber tried to make his getaway, Peoples left his sons inside the bank and ran to his rented van, which he used to block Rogers' car in the parking lot.


Let me switch over to another account for the rest.

Peoples said his Army combat training simply took over. He used his left arm to grab and twist the robber's arm until the wrist locked, making it easy for Peoples to strip the gun away.

Then he used a martial arts move to wrap one arm behind the robber's neck and slam him face first to the ground.

There's some video here. It's at that last link, if this direct link doesn't work.

Update: Bryan tells me that in that link, the report says the robber was scared enough to have "an accident" in his pants.

Since I'm being Captain Smartypants telling other people how to do crime, I'll do it for this guy too.

You had an enormous black guy in the bank who you immediately sensed would be trouble. You were so preoccupied by him you made a special point of wagging the gun in his face, and telling him not to do anything aggressive, and then even threatened his kids to drive the point home.

So here's the question, genius:

That black guy was going to be done with his business and out of the bank in like ten or twenty minutes. Why didn't you just wait for him to finish his banking business and leave, as you'd already identified him as 240 pounds of trouble?

The bank is not a Chuck-E-Cheese. The guy's not going to have his kids there all day in the bouncy castle or anything.

Were you going for a high degree of difficulty to impress the Romanian judge?

Or did you have a something scheduled for later? Did you have to mail something out at the post office and so you had to hurry up your bank robbery?

I know the post office sucks but let's prioritize our chores here, huh?
