    Marine Stabbed at Best Buy by suspected shoplifter!

    November 27, 2010
    AUGUSTA, Ga. -

    A U.S. Marine reservist collecting toys for children was stabbed when he helped stop a suspected shoplifter in eastern Georgia.

    Best Buy sales manager Orvin Smith told The Augusta Chronicle that man was seen on surveillance cameras Friday putting a laptop under his jacket at the Augusta store. When confronted, the man became irate, knocked down an employee, pulled a knife and ran toward the door.

    Outside were four Marines collecting toys for the service branch's "Toys For Tots" program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of them, Cpl. Phillip Duggan, in the back. The cut did not appear to be severe.

    The suspect was transported to the local hospital with two broken arms, a broken leg, possible broken ribs, assorted lacerations and bruises he obtained when he fell, trying to run after stabbing the Marine. The suspect, whose name was not released, was held until police arrived. The Richmond County Sheriff's office said it is investigating.



    It's a hell of a fall when you trip into a pile of pissed Marines!!!!

    That poor, misunderstood chap took quite a tumble didn't he. It he ever gets any smarter, he'll probably just choose to dive in front of a speeding truck the next time. It is not a good idea to be around a bunch of Marines that are having leg spasms.

    A street thug with a knife against an active duty Marine?
    I'd put my money on the Marine, but who would bet on the thug?

    A true incident as reported on November 27th, but an additional paragraph added for effect. The trooper was stabbed and released from the hospital after being stitched up, but the perp was simply tackled by the other Marines and store security personnel.

    A cute story though. Details at:

    The Marines were just exercising self control. If not, the scumbag would have been much worse than the added paragraph!
