fd1962- Armed robbery can be committed with a deadly weapon, i.e., gun, knife, etc. or a dangerous instrument, that is any normally benign item that can be used as a weapon and would include just about anything such as a baseball bat, crowbar, fireplace tool and yes, sticks.

Danny, my favorite was the Alfred Hitchcock mystery where the lady whacked her husband with the frozen leg-of-lamb, then cooked and served it to the investigating officer.

That was a good one, FD.

That was a good one, FD. Also I like the Columbo episode where the murder weapon was a block of ice. The murderer whacked the victim over the head while the victim was in his swimming pool. The murderer then tossed the ice block into the pool and walked away.

Good thing this did not

Good thing this did not happen in L.A. California. They would have followed him in a slow pursuit until he ran out of gas I guess. Who remembers the OJ chase? This guy must have been hard up for his crack cash !

There is a class action

There is a class action lawsuit regarding Craftsman with Briggs & Stratton motors-they fudged about the horsepower. He probably thought it was faster than advertised.
