Former Marine Discovers Cure For Criminal Recidivism

It involves eight inches of filet knife, applied under the rib cage of the subject criminal.

Chicago police said a 44-year-old former Marine used a knife to kill a man who had broken into his garage.

Mark Hayes said an alarm went off in his garage at 3:30 a.m.

When he went to check the garage, he was approached by the the intruder, who attempted to attack him with a hammer, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Hayes fought back with a fillet knife, and stabbed the intruder under his ribcage. The man began bleeding profusely.

The intruder ran and jumped into the car, and went to Roseland Hospital, where he was identified as Harold Cornell, 52.

Cornell died at the hospital at 3:44 a.m., the Tribune reported.

He had more than 25 arrests on his record since 1985, including theft, criminal trespassing and domestic battery.


I like how UPI uses proper nomenclature: former Marine, not ex-Marine.

Sounds almost like a game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors".

Only it's Knife, Gun, Hammer, I guess.
