Mabry, a 16-year bus driver, was on his way to pick up students about 6:45 a.m. Friday when he noticed a truck on East Raccoon Valley Road pulling a trailer he’d seen in a neighbor’s yard on Halls Gap Road for at least three months, he said.
He blocked the two-lane road with his bus so the truck could not leave and then called 911, he said.
… Just like a stool:
A male suspect had brandished a knife and demanded cash, but the clerk picked up a stool and threatened the would-be thief, who fled on foot, said KPD Sgt. Brad Cox.
No one was injured.
… And just like a knife:
A 19-year-old man died after he was stabbed by a man he attacked for “no apparent reason” near a midtown convenience store Saturday night, police said.
Not having a firearm handy does not make you even close to defenseless… you just have to learn how to rely on other tools that are around you all the time. Of course, given the choice between a stool and a firearm when it comes to a robber threatening me with a knife, I would go for the slugthrower, but if it works, it works, and that is all that matters. Remember – the only real weapon is between your ears… everything else is just a tool to employ as you dictate.
