Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Here's the story as reported in the media:

    Local Marine Stabbed During Toys for Tots Drive Speaks Out | WJBF

    Here's the story as forwarded to me by a retired detective I used to work with:

    *Augusta, GA*

    *Orville Smith, a store manager for Best Buy in Augusta, Georgia, told police he observed a male customer, later identified as Tyrone Jackson of Augusta, on surveillance cameras putting a laptop computer under his jacket.. When confronted the man became irate, knocked down an employee, drew a knife and ran for the door.*

    *Outside on the sidewalk were four Marines collecting toys for the "Toys for Tots" program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of the Marines, Cpl. Phillip Duggan, in the back; the injury did not appear to be severe.*

    *After Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene Cpl. Duggan was transported for treatment.

    The subject was also transported to the local hospital with two broken arms, a broken ankle, a broken leg, several missing teeth, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions, assorted lacerations, a broken nose and a broken jaw.injuries he sustained when he slipped and fell off of the curb after stabbing the Marine.*

    Now that was a well written Police report.

    Three guesses which version I prefer! PLUS: The idiot bastard jacked this up from a simple theft to an armed robbery charge. Good work, Einstein!
  2. oh isn't this the same story that appears in email's and forums where it was SAS troopers/Para's/SEALS/boy scouts etc
