thieves now in pain

If you were a thief who wanted to make some quick money, would you rob:
  • a. a karate academy full of students
  • b. a blind man waiting alone at a train station.

If you answered (a) you would be incorrect. If you answered (b) you would also be incorrect-- and both situations happened on the same day in September.

In Colombia, a man entered a martial arts studio brandishing a gun. His plan? --to rob all the students of their cash and make a quick get-away. The students apparently didn't take well to the threat and immediately performed their "arts" all over the would-be robber.

He is now recovering in the hospital.

Meanwhile, in Germany, a 17-year-old man saw an easy mark: a 33-year old blind man standing at a train station. He approached the man, threatened him and struck him in the face.

What he didn't know was that his victim was a world-class judo wrestler. The would-be victim, identified as Emil E., flipped his attacker and held him down on the ground until police arrived.
