Man Robs Restaurant with Knife, Customer Tweets It
My Hero of the Day for today isn’t the actual idiot committing the crime. It was a witness to said crime. Because if you happen to be a witness to something scary I hope the first thing you think to do is call 911. I hope at least the fourth thing you think to do is tweet about the robbery.
In Narita, Japan, 41-year-old Shouichi Ishii walked into a Ramen take out restaurant, brandished a large knife and demanded all the cash in the register. Two people in the restaurant actually pulled out their phones and tweeted a photo of the robbery in progress.
Someone smarter called the police and Ishii was arrested outside the restaurant.
