That’s former Marine, not “ex-Marine”.
I didn’t write the story.
Beat me to it.
I’ve heard of suicide by cop, but not Darwin award by Marine.
Must have been a slow thief.............
“[Agbokou] was trying to drive off, but the car was stuck in the snow,” said Francis, who added that he had spoken to Paris. “He’s a good person who was mixed up in a messed-up situation.”
Don’t you just love it when the perps family comes out and says ‘he was good boy.’ /s
Points out the deference between law enforcement training and military training .... The difference between detaining a suspect and neutralizing a threat.
“Cops first said Agbokou “became disoriented” and lost consciousness while cops were placing him in custody. They later denied arresting him.”
Yea, I believe it, sure, I believe it.
I didn’t see any quotes from the perp’s family...
We’ve had Epic Beard Guy and now we have Epic Muscled Marine creating an executive outcome by also taking out the trash with his bare hands!
Cops, lawyers, and judges now have less job security because of one less criminal on the street.
The family will be quoted with the familiar words like “He was turning his life around, had a job, was going to school” blah blah blah.
At 6’3” 240...I bet he only used one hand.
I think the comment was referring to the victim (the car owner). It was made by his friend, to whom he planned to sell the car.
It's true, though, that (female) relatives invariably show up when some young thug gets it, saying what a great guy he was.
I wonder if the press would be so exuberant if it were a white marine that killed a black car thief?
‘I didnt see any quotes from the perps family...’
My bad, that was the friend of the owner but I’m sure if they interview the family...
Allow me to translate: Agboukou was an illegal alien via visa overstay.
There was recently an incident in Texas where a perp was shot, repeatedly, by the residents of a home he was attempting to enter without a resident. The amusing part was afterward, when the media went looking for the sympathetic female relative (of the type you mention); they got some maternal relative on who stated that she’d always known the perp was a bad seed and apologized to the residents for his actions.
I love Texas.
I do, but I admit I’m prejudiced. ;-) Prayers for this Marine’s future, that no charges are pressed and that he will be very successful at the job he just landed as a financial analyst. What a success story to have to start off with such a traumatic event. Served his country, educated, will begin a good job and some sleaze bag thief tries to bite and hurt him.
This guy was allowed into America and showed his gratitude by becoming a criminal. That wacko name seems Nigerian to me....NY Post said he was from some 3rd world hole called Togo
Agbokou's neighbors said they were shocked to hear that the Togolese immigrant was believed to have been trying to steal a car.
"He's a hardworking guy," said Harold Gennot. "Not a bad guy."
Agbokou was from Togo. I know that’s Africa but would have to look at a map
Some knucklehead named Radley is criticizing the marine for use of force. I wanted to sign up so that I could tell him about a friend at my plant in Detroit who not only had his car hijacked but got shot in the process too. Fortunately he survived but the perp was never found......
Semper Fi, brother (or sister). My father always took the time to correct people who would use “ex” in conjunction with “Marine”.
He’s dead, Jim.
God Bless the Marines!!
Um, I think the comment was about Paris, the former Marine who defended his property ie NOT the perp. (Admittedly made the same mistake myself on the first read-through.)
Galloway: Tell your friend not to get cute down there, the Marines at Gitmo are fanatical.
Lt. Weinberg: Fanatical about what?
Galloway: About being Marines.
Agbokou, you have To go!
Sometimes a picture says it all :)
One of the worst countries on the worst continent on the planet. Their roving government backed death squads are highly regarded.
Seems that Agbokou was bringing all the native social pathologies with him. What a surprise.
The bushmeat grinder is exquisite!
The former marine from his facebook page...
“Squeeze me gently, squeeze me do. Squeeze me darling, I love you..”
I love our military, greatest in the world, but why was it necessarry to mention the the guy was a retired marine? What if he had been a retired journalist? let me see; ex-journalist chokes blah blah blah ,... or maybe he might have been a lawyer; ex-lawyer chokes blah blah blah .... See what I mean?
“Some knucklehead named Radley is criticizing the marine for use of force.”
As opposed to the knuckleheads here on FR who, if it were a cop instead of a Marine, would be calling for the head of the cop and post how cops are no different than Nazis...F**cking hypocrites.
Thanks for an absolutely perfect post.
and heart stopping.
He obliged! ;-)
Ah yes, the old “naked stranglehold” gets ‘em every time.
There is no such thing as a “former” Marine. You have Active Duty Marine, Marine Reservist, Marine Veteran, and Ex-Marine.
Both North and Murtha are Marine veterans, as they both were honorably discharged. You can not take honorable service away from a person; that doesn’t change the fact that Murtha was a D-Bag to the Nth degree, though.
An ex-Marine would be some one who was dis-honorably discharged, or given an OTH.
Just my 2 cents.
Oh, absolutely! I hug mine everyday. My oldest is leaving for boot camp in September.
Tht he did.
The Olympic Judges rate it a perfect 10 score.
So we have 1 less thief and Obama voter. A good news day.
