How did this one get past Darwin?

BEAVERTON, Ore. - You've heard the old saying 'don't bring a knife to a gun fight.'

Well how about a bat? Apparently, that doesn't work too well either - just ask 22-year-old Derrick Mosley.

Sheriff's deputies say Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.

But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.

When sheriff's deputies arrived, they found Mosley on the floor being held at gunpoint by the manager. They handcuffed Mosley on the spot and took him into custody on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree criminal mischief. Bail was set at $250,000.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    Robbing a gun shop during business hours. Must be a short-circuit in Mosley's victim-selection algorithm!

    A number of years ago, a thug tried to hold up a cop bar in downtown Houston. I've been to the bar (now closed) and it had in the window a big display of cop memorabilia, and inside, the walls were covered with cop photos and other police-related stuff.

    But the guy came in, nevertheless, a small revolver in hand, demanding money from each burly, 40s, short hair, conservatively-dressed guy sitting along the bar. He went down the row and got to a homicide cop I knew. The cop took out his wallet, then dropped it accidentally on the floor. The robber bent over to pick it up and received a .38 slug in the back of the head for his trouble. Oh my.
