So apparently we can add "Dairy Queen employee" to the list of Most Dangerous Jobs. Just ask the poor guy who happened to be on soft-serve duty in a Las Vegas DQ when a masked man brandishing a "full-sized, martial arts sword" ran into his store screaming. Because I'm pretty sure he'd agree. I'm also pretty sure there's no entry in the Dairy Queen employee handbook index under: "Shoplifters, see Samurai sword-wielding."
Thankfully, the employee wasn't hurt ... because the ice cream thing was just a front, and he's really a trained Samurai warror!
No, just kidding. Not about the employee not getting hurt, because he really didn't get hurt. But his weapon of self-defense wasn't a sword ...
It was a handgun, which he used to shoot the would-be thief (since identified as 36-year-old Bong Pak, who was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital). Yikes! All in a day's work?!
I just ... I just don't know what to say anymore. We've got dudes calling 911 for beer and other dudes butt-dialing 911 during drug deals. We've got lab technicians having drunken "partially-clothed" parties with monkeys. Some 23-year-old genius filmed himself driving around shooting a stolen gun out the window ... and put the video on YouTube. And don't even get me started on the zombies or the psychopaths on shooting rampages.
I want to ask what this world is coming to, but, you know, that would be lame and clichéd. So I guess the only other option is to crawl under the covers and hide for ... ever. I scream, you scream, we all scream ... because some guy with a sword just tried to rob a Dairy Queen and I can't take this shit anymore!
What's the craziest crime you've heard about recently?
