Stickup Thug Sues Employees and Cops for Ending His Crime Spree
There is a right way and a wrong way to steal from a business. The wrong way is to bluster in with a firearm; you never know when law-abiding citizens might defend themselves. The right way is to get the moonbattery-addled looting spree that calls itself our legal system on your side. A young man demonstrates his capacity to learn:
The first time Nigel Sykes tried to get money from the Seasons Pizza in Newport [Delaware], he did it with a gun, forcing his way into the business through the back door.
This time, Sykes is trying to get money from the pizzeria by suing the employees who tackled him and wrestled his gun away during the robbery.
Sykes alleges assault in a federal civil complaint claiming the rough treatment was “unnecessary” and that as a result of the injuries he suffered during his attempted hold-up, he is due over $260,000.
Sykes also claims in his suit, filed without an attorney, that after employees subdued him, two Newport police officers improperly used stun guns on him and denied him access to medical attention.
US District Judge Sue L. Robinson has allowed the case to move forward, not only against the police but against the employees and the pizzeria itself. Even if the business wins, it could be crippled by legal expenses.
Naturally Sykes claims the police used a racial slur. This accusation confers automatic guilt, since anyone disputing the charge would be calling Sykes a liar, thereby proving himself to be a racist. A large pile of free money will inevitably follow.
In an earlier account, he also claimed that he only robbed the pizzeria because someone forced him to. At the time of his arrest, Sykes was linked to at least eight other robberies.
There have always been criminals and savages among us. The reason everything is so much worse than it used to be is that the criminals and savages didn’t use to have the system on their side.
