Robbing Ultimate Fighting Expert Proves To Be Bad Decision
CBS Chicago ^ | 12-5-2011

Posted on 12/05/2011 3:45:55 PM PST by Dysart

CHICAGO (CBS) — Robbing a man who turned out to be an ultimate fighter proved to be a bad decision for a convicted felon, who is now in bad shape as he is held on bond.

Police say around 11:30 p.m. Friday, Anthony Miranda, 24, walked up to a car parked at 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue, just a few blocks from Midway International Airport.

Miranda asked the driver for a lighter, and the driver said he didn’t have one. Then Miranda pulled a handgun and demanded that the driver hand over his money, police said.

I like the excerpt. Where you ended, only the picture was needed to know the rest of the story.

I dunno. How about an object lesson about how crime doesn't pay?

was able to pin Miranda down until police arrived.

Looks like he was able to play with him like a cat with a bug until police arrived.

From the looks of it Miranda received warnings right and left.

Curious where the weapon was at the time the cops arrived?

That’s key so the intended victim doesn’t get shot for winning the fight!

This crime didn’t pay. I’ll wager he committed plenty of crimes that did pay.

My stepson has a Marine tee-shirt that says pain is weakness leaving the body.

It looks like weakness decided to leave this criminals body through his face.

It just occurred to me that if they didn't the left would transform him into a victim-hero.

Greed plus stupidity is not a good combination. (He actually got some money from the victim, but insisted that the victim get out of his car. In the ensuing fight moron shot himself in the ankle, as well as getting beaten to a pulp.)

I’ll bet this Pervert is a Democrat Ward Leader in Chicago as well!! Probably a major player in the “RELECT HUSSEIN!” Organization as well.

“Several prior convictions”.

Whatever happened to three strikes and you are out (in for a LONG time)?

Need to implement that three strikes for illegals too!

The Pervert should be charged with “AGGRAVATED ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE!” His gun was discharged, it well could have killed the Victim, but then the Liberals always protect the Perpetrators and be damned with the Victims! Thats why Abortions of Innocent Babies is Great with Liberals, but don’t You dare to Execute the Worst of the Serial Killers,
Rapists, and Child Killers, no matter how they tortured their Victims, before brutally slaughtering them!
Obama has publically said he supports sticking a pair of scissors thru the brain of a successfully born baby because
“HE THINKS THAT IS FINE!”

I’m thinking you give the dude his attitude adjustment and take his weapon as a “war trophy.”

The ankle wound will cost the taxpayers a lot of money. Some thing IL doesn’t have. Amputation would be cheaper. Now, if this had been me that ended up with the gun the second shot would have gotten closer to the heart. Save everyone a lot of money and time.
