    OMAHA, Neb. - Two robbers who thought they had an easy mark in a 68-year-old Omaha man were surprised on Sunday. Police said Earnest Coleman was sitting in his car outside an Omaha grocery store when a young man jumped into the passenger seat with a gun and demanded Coleman's money.

    Coleman responded by grabbing the robber and his gun, and exchanging blows. A second robber came to Coleman's window and hit the elderly man, police said.

    Undeterred, Coleman pulled that man into the car and began to hit him, too. The two robbers then ran away — without Coleman's money and without the gun.

    Police are reviewing surveillance footage from security cameras, a spokesman said.

    The robbers appeared to be teenagers, Coleman said.

    Maybe, just maybe, that will be the end of their life of crime.

    Hopefully it taught the little punks to live on the right side of the law. After all, he could've shot the little sh$ts in self defense after he got the gun away from the first punk.

    Unfortunately, the only thing they probably learned was to pick an old woman next time.

    Old men don't play. Punks had to be stupid not to know that. 20 million vets out there on the street, and they really don't play. There was an old man that lived in my neighborhood, I knew he was a WWII vet, but he never talked about it. I'd see him every morning as I ran. After he passed away a couple of years ago, his obit in the paper said he worked for the OSS, was a Jedhburg agent, parachuted into France by himself.

    Great job!!!
    I really don't think this would have deterred a common theif, now if this was their first or second time trying this shit, then maybe, just maybe, they crapped their pants enough to not try it again (one can dream can't he?)
