Massachusetts store owner thwarts robber with chili powder
STONEHAM, Mass. – A Stoneham store owner said he wasn't intimidated when a robber pointed a gun in his face and demanded the money from the cash register.
Saadat Khan calmly went behind the counter as if he was going to open the register, grabbed a cup of chili pepper powder he sprinkles on food, tossed it in the thief's face, punched him, and sent him packing empty-handed.Okay, now that is badass right there. Facing a dude with a gun, this guy tosses chili powder - not pepper spray, actual chili powder - in the dude's face, then punches him. Since this is Massachusetts, where we "discourage self help", I expect Mr. Khan (sorry, I have to do this: KHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!) to be arrested and charged with assault and battery with a delicious weapon.
And I certainly hope he had a Class A LTC: License to Condiment...
That is all.
