sas stabbing

true story.PERTH - An SAS trooper collecting toys for children was stabbed when he helped
stop a suspected shoplifter in east Perth .

The 'Toys-R-Us' Store Manager told 'The West Australian' that a man was seen on
surveillance cameras last Friday putting a laptop under his jacket at the store.

When confronted, the man became irate, knocked down an employee, pulled a knife
and ran toward the door.
Outside were four SAS Troopers collecting toys for the "Toys For Tots" program.

Smith said the Troopers stopped the man, but he stabbed one of them, in the back.
The cut did not appear to be severe.

The suspect was transported by ambulance to the Royal Perth Hospital with two
broken arms, a broken leg, suspected broken ribs, multiple contusions and assorted
lacerations including a broken nose and jaw...
Injuries he apparently sustained when he tripped whilst trying to run away after the stabbing.

One of the Troopers said, "He was a real clumsy bastard."

In England or the US the SAS soldiers would've gone down for 10 years and the theif would've got 100k+ in compensation!!

Awesome story though, need more people like that in the world!!

"Never let the truth get in the way of a good story" - Anon

It's what powerboaters live by... "I was doing 62 in 2ft chop" doesn't sound half as good as "I was doing 85 through 12ft breaking swells, even the lifeboat couldn't come out!!!"
