Wait, They Didn't Shoot Him?

Mira Loma, CA

Riverside County Sheriffs responded to an assault in Mira Loma about 6:30 last night. Turns out one Ryan Colbert, 19-years-old, had left the scene with two knives on him. The cops scoured the area... well, okay, they bumped into him about a block away.

Anyway, the cops see him, he sees the cops. And in a display of amazingly bad judgment, or possibly just an old inner ear problem, he charges them with both knives drawn. Probably saw too many Kurosawa movies, or something.
One of the deputies deployed a non-lethal weapon to subdue him, sheriff's officials said.
Subdue him. That must've hurt.

I saw this nature show one time on Komodo dragons or some other giant monster lizard. This thing runs up to a slow moving deer just munching on some grass, leaps up and shears the fucking thing's head clean off. Seriously. Like bolt cutters on a Gitmo inmate's nutsack.

And right after this some Masterpiece Theater voice over says, "After subduing the antelope..." Wonder if they both mean the same thing.

Yow. A new phrase for the day: "...and then she kicked him in the bolts."
