      Poor guy. Had to probably spend a couple of hours in custody, while young female pedestrians were walking around with valuable possessions that could have been his. I’m sure he must of got his gun back as well, with an apology.

      Just another macho tico targeting women. These wimpy live-at-home-until-your -parents-die cowards beat the crap out of their women–why not rob them as well?
