I found this news blurb on my homepage. Kind of makes me think that someone will try this elsewhere.

What bothers me is that some other low life will read this and try it somewhere else.

Subject: Park Seeking Info on Armed Robbery




Smokies Rangers Seek Information on Armed Robbery on Foothills Parkway


National Park Service rangers and special agents are investigating an armed
robbery occurring last Wednesday April 25, on the Foothills Parkway-East
near Cosby Cocke County, Tenn.A man and woman, both from Newport,
Tennessee, reported that at approximately 4:25 p.m., while they were
sitting in their vehicle at an overlook, they were confronted by two
subjects dressed in dark clothing and wearing ski masks.One of the
subjects assaulted the male victim by spraying him with pepper spray and
hitting him on the head with a silver colored handgun.The two suspects
then took the victim's 2004 maroon Nissan sedan and drove east on the
parkway towards I-40.A park employee came across the victims a short
while after the attack and reported the incident.


Cocke County deputies and Park Rangers responded and recovered the car
which had been abandoned along the Parkway.A search of the area, with the
assistance of a Sheriff�s Department K-9, resulted in the recovery of
clothing articles and other forensic evidence believed to belong to the
suspects.The male victim was taken by ambulance to Newport Medical Center
where he was treated and released.


Park investigators do not believe this was a random crime against a park
visitor.Chief Ranger Clay Jordan stated, �We are pursuing leads in the
case suggestive that the victims may have been specifically targeted in a
preplanned robbery.�Park officials are asking anyone with information
concerning this incident to call park investigators at (82 497-1936.

employees care for America�s 395 national parks and work with communities

duckypaddler, this gives another good reason to have your friends with you- Smith & Wesson, Sam Colt, Bill Ruger, to name a few. And to think there are those who want to disarm us.
