Default Actual Craig's Personal Ad

What a nice thoughtful young man. Alex you are really a great person and I wish you all the best in the future. If only there were more young men of this caliber.

AN ACTUAL CRAIG'S LIST PERSONALS AD
To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
Date: 2010-09-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.

First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason..my girlfriend was happy that I just returned safely from my 2nd tour as a Combat Marine in Afghanistan .. She had just bought me that Kimber Custom Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... isn't it?!

I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].

After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, -- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 153 gallons and was extremely grateful!

I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb .... after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.

Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what 's going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.

The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you've chosen to pursue in life.. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!
Thoughtfully yours, Semper Fi,
Alex

Although this particular interchange is proven to be fiction. (See Snopes above) I can't see why you posted it. It probably isn't going to make people who don't carry guns want to carry them. And you will argue that you should have a gun in The Villages. I have heard it argued before, but I, me, just don't see the need. Now if I lived in a high crime area, I MIGHT entertain that idea. And there are those who will say that I am naive, and I will say that we all have different life experiences. I know a lot of people and none of them were mugged. I know a LOT of people and none of them were mugged or had a home invasion. When that begins to happen, you have my attention.

Too early with too much or too late with too little? I continue to have an open mind. And each person sees it differently.

Some people are always looking for trouble or starting trouble and they need to be armed.

I am glad we have the right to carry a weapon because the bad guys sure do.

But for now, no thanks.

Nice free country we live in. We have a choice.

Methinks Figmo spends a lot of time watching Death Wish re-runs and fantasizing he is a a vigilante.

Even though this incident didn't happen don't you wish it would, to some unsuspecting thug?? Gracie, you don't know me, but we did have a home invasion. This didn't happen in The Villages. Also, my son has been mugged.

It is a waste of electrons for Figment to post such a stupid item. Does he really think we are gullible enough to believe it?

If it were true, the person with the gun also would be found guilty of several crimes including robbery and threatening the President. If it were true, that person would have faced serious prison time.

Anyhow, it is fake. As I have posted here before, if I see anyone with a concealed pistol at any of The Villages many watering holes, I am going to call the police so fast it will make their head spin. If I see any person with a concealed weapon just flash their pistol to attract attention, I am calling the police. In other words, it is best not to be carrying a pistol in The Villages.
