This is a local news item. I doubt the link will last more than a day. It appears the man had no connection to the JW's previously, he just considered them an "easy mark". I can well imagine congregation members are experiencing vivid nightmares, now.
Samurai sword-wielding man terrorizes church full of Jehovah's Witnesses
He actually went to a kingdom hall to rob them.....
obviously didn't do his homework!
All the cash collected from the brothers wouldn't have been enough to get a big-mac on the way home....
The fella obviously failed Criminal School. His first attempt was a Pawn Shop, he failed miserably.
Wow... I wonder how many dubbies pooped their pants.... interesting that a courageous woman saved the day rather than one of the Sarim (Isa. 32:1)!
Burton returns to court Oct. 2 at which time Scully will set a date for sentencing.
JWD posters like Scully are everywhere!
It's Persecution!!! We should expect incidents of this type to increase, since we are living so close to the time of the end!!!
Goes to show there is no protection from God anywhere. Nothing is sacred!
Thanks for the article. Laughed hysterically and I actually felt bad for the robber.
I too felt pity for the criminal, he is too inept to rob a KH.Surely he must realize lots of people cary cell phones. this should go in the stupid criminal tricks award column.
does it sound like someone who studied before and became disgruntled to you? LOLOLOLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL I can't breathe I am laughing so hard!
that is the most pathetically funny thing I have ever read. He can't make it on $15 an hour? Hey bud--try doing it on $10. And he thought the JWs had money to steal? Sounds like he needs to hear about the paradise earth.....
the costume sounds awesome. Wish I had the nerve to walk into a KH with a 60 inch sword. Hey now there's the idea for the next Memorial....
oh PS--as far as the trauma and the complaint or whatever the wife filed---that is just a ploy to get some kind of government victims fund money--I guarantee it. So she can pioneer and quit cleaning other people's toilets for $7 an hour.
Some of those 65 people still suffer the after-effects of that terror
Can you imagine the effects had he come dressed as a smurf?
The wife of one of those men filed a victim impact statement which describes how she still feels the stress of that night -- particularly when she goes to church.
Now there's a GREAT excuse to get out of meetings...why didn't any of you think of that one?
