St. Paul: Burglar cornered by woman's pink gun gets 11 years in prison
pioneer press ^ | 1-4-13 | emil gurnon

Posted on 01/05/2013 7:01:09 AM PST by TurboZamboni

A man whose burglary of a St. Paul home was foiled by two women and a pink-handled handgun was sentenced Friday, Jan. 4, to nearly 11 years in prison.

Described by his own attorney as a "career criminal," Marty Mark Childs has at least nine prior felony convictions, including residential burglary, theft and attempted escape.

He had been out of prison on a previous burglary sentence less than four months when he walked through an unlocked back door of a house in the 1300 block of Fremont Street on Sept. 16. It was mid-afternoon, and Rebecca Larson, 56, was in the driveway washing her car.

The victims, who sat in court wearing pink tops, said through a statement read by a prosecutor that the incident robbed them of their sense of safety in their home.

What the heck does that (the pink blouses) have to do with this story?

The women are obviously rabid "Kello Kitty" right wingers with a pink handgun. Must demonize them. You know, the standard media themes...

Interesting part when they “forced” him to the floor, put a foot on his neck and had a knee in his back.

This teaches us not to burgle homes owned by armed women who wrestle.

It’s also interesting that he seems to have dropped some weight over the past 111 days. Here’s his booking photo.

Perhaps the pink gun is the only reason it was reported...

“Law-abiding citizens exercising their Constitutional Rights prevent another tragic crime”...just doesn’t sound as sexy as “pink gun”.

NINE prior felony convictions? What is he doing out on the streets?

Personally I am in favor of a mandatory death sentence for any three-time felon. It would require making fewer minor offenses into felonies, of course. But surely anyone who has already served two terms of incarceration and goes on to commit a third major felony is worthy of being excised from our civilization permanently.

I would have worn a pink blouse, too, in honor of the pink gun that may have saved my life.

Another ‘great’ headline....

I would also be ‘scared’ if from out of nowhere a pink gun got me cornered.

Really scary if someone were ‘manning’ it.

Not just Minnesota, but Minneapolis-St. Paul. I figure he’ll be out in another four months.

Firefox blew itself up with the last “update”.

Worked great for everything but internet browsing.

Chrome took some getting used to but now it just feels normal.

That’s true in every state unfortunately. If you’ve caught them in the house and have the drop on them, pull the trigger

Part of the problem: "Childs pleaded guilty Oct. 2 to first-degree burglary. A second charge of first-degree burglary was dropped at sentencing as part of the plea deal."
Why the Hell did they give him a plea deal when they had him cold?

"Ramsey County District Judge Salvador Rosas gave Childs credit for 111 days served in jail and ordered him to have no contact with the victims."
And if he disobeys, the judge will taunt him a second time.

“could be both...see 11”

Actually, I checked the original article. The guy’s picture is in it. He’s one of “Holders’ People.” So I guess that makes him “Amish,” right?

IIRC, MN is near the bottom of the 57 states in incarceration to parole ratio.

That’s not mine.

I posted in Comic Sans MS font and I think that’s Times New Roman.
