Klingon Weapon Used in 2 7-Eleven Robberies
It’s come to this.
A man wielding a batleth robbed two 7-Eleven stories in Colorado Springs overnight. The first assault using the deadly Klingon weapon occurred at 1:50 a.m. when a man police described as white in his 20s, wearing a black mask, black jacket, and blue jeans walked in brandishing the weapon. The clerk recognized the traditional armament and forked over an undisclosed amount of cash.
Thirty minutes later, according to The Denver Channel, the same man hit a second store but this time the clerk showed bravery in the face of certain death. He too recognized the ancient weapon but refused the demand and the would-be thief showed his true colors and fled.
Police are reviewing the stores’ surveillance tapes and Lt. David Whitlock said he does not plan to release the video or photographs "at this time."
When oh when will Congress pass a batleth registration law?
Klingon honor among thieves. Go figure.
As a former C. Springs resident, i'm just glad that the city is becoming known for something other than the Texas 7 and Focus on the Family. Plus, convention organizers, not everybody wants to drive all the way up to Denver. Clearly there's star trek fans in Colorado Springs. Perhaps now organizers will consider doing a covention in the Springs.http://www.igp-scifi.com
Clearly not a true Klingon. First, a Klingon would never stoop to petty robbery, let alone of a convenience store. Second, a Klingon would not fail in the attempt.
Was he an original series Klingon (no ridges) or a 24th century Klingon (ridges)? I'm going with original series.
What's next? Phasers?
