Brave Clerk Fights Off Armed Robber with Unregulated Full-Metal Napkin Dispenser


Washington State Legislature to Introduce Metal Napkin Dispenser Control Act to Establish Guidelines for Napkin Dispenser Background Checks, Regulate Production and Ownership of Defensive Full-Metal Napkin Dispensers

BURLINGTON, Wash. — Cops are on the hunt for a serial armed robber and police say his last target was a clerk inside the Lafeen’s Donut shop on November 30.

But thanks to a brave store clerk police now have a clear view of the suspect’s face.crime-fighter

Investigators think the same man is responsible for robberies stretching from Burlington to Bellingham.

“It just makes me mad,” said clerk Sara Mora, “It makes me angry.”

Mora was working in the back of the store when she heard a customer walk in.

But when she saw a man guy holding a gun, she did exactly as she was told.

“Right when he flashes his gun I’m like, whoa,” she said. “This is the end of me, my life ends right here.”

The thief made Sara empty the register. But when the suspect turned to cut the phone lines, Sara made her move and armed herself with a metal napkin dispenser.

During the struggle Sara pulled down the suspect’s hood. Investigators said the image of the man captured on video is their best chance to identify the suspect.

“It gives us a very description of who we’re looking for,” said Officer Jed Cates of the Burlington Police Department. “He’s obviously shown that he’s willing to do it, this has occurred 4 times in Bellingham.”

Investigators believe the suspect is responsible for other armed robberies in Bellingham; several were also captured on surveillance video. Read the rest of this entry »

[VIDEO] Spiked: ‘Saturday Night Live‘ Takes on Ferguson Protests in Cut Sketch

News anchors have a tough job: They have to pretend like everything’s great when usually it’s, well, not. But Cecily Strong and Kenan Thompson give up on pretending in a cut Saturday Night Live sketch where the two play St. Louis morning show hosts distressed by what’s going on in nearby Ferguson.

“James Franco, Saturday’s host, also appears as a guest on the show… The entire sketch is an awkward, apt comment on racism in America and how we cover that racism—as well as a fine five minutes of comedy.”

At first, Thompson and Strong try to read off some lighthearted weekend news about fun runs and concerts but decide to cut to their traffic reporter, played by Leslie Jones, who appears onscreen just to say traffic’s bad. Read the rest of this entry »
