"Senior citizens, while slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can serve a purpose!"

(-Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber before being robbed by a sweet old lady in a motorized cart)

I bet muggers in Costa Rica will think twice next time!

U.S. Tourist in Costa Rica Kills Mugger

A tour bus of U.S. senior citizens defended themselves against a group of alleged muggers, sending two of them fleeing and killing a third in the Atlantic coast city of Limon, police said on Thursday.

One of the tourists - a retired member of the U.S. military aged about 70 - put assailant Warner Segura in a head lock and broke his clavicle after the 20-year-old and two other men armed with a knife and gun held up their tour bus Wednesday, said Luis Hernandez, the police chief of Limon, 80 miles east of San Jose.
