Shoppers, pickle jar stop robbery attempt

By Washington Post Editors

A Milwaukee food market customer helped turn away an armed would-be robber by hitting him with a pickle jar, according to this report:

Lugman Asad said he was in the back of the store eating his lunch about 2:50 p.m. when he came out and saw a man with a gun to the head of his son, Wisam, the store owner.
He said he grabbed the gun from the man who then fired a shot. But three or four customers were in the store at the time and they jumped on the suspect.

Way to go, Lugman. We're with ya!

Just remember: When pickles are outlawed, only outlaws will have pickles. Think about it.
