Old Marines

Via LawDog and Marko:

Not gonna rehash the entire story here: group of elderly tourists gets accosted in Costa Rica, and one 70 year old gentleman fights back, bare hands against a gun. Old man wins. Reminds me of Mom, back in the day...

So tell me: why is it I hear SO many folks not able to defend themselves? Why are so many willing to roll over to thugs? And someone compare the above story with this (again thanks to LawDog)...

Attempt to mug a vacationing senior citizen, get dead. Attack three college boys in their own home, and get to return for round two. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?
