A 53-year-old Augusta man was beaten in an attempted robbery late Friday night.



The victim said he was in the 1200 block of Dugas Street when two men yelled for him to hand over his money. When the man refused, the men punched and kicked him.

A witness flagged down a Richmond County Sheriff’s deputy, who found the victim lying in the street. He was transported by ambulance to Medical College of Georgia Hospital. The suspects did not get any money from the victim, according to an incident report.

This is why everyone needs to carry a gun to shoot the %^$&^*&'s on the spot. That would stop them DEAD in their tracks.

Thugs know that as long as

Thugs know that as long as they don't have any "weapons" they can kick your brains through a "goal" post and get into less trouble than you and i would if we shot them because they are "unarmed".

Unpublished

You are exactly right Crime Reports, especially a lot of the younger ones. But not if I am on that jury!!!!! lol The more of these thugs we make take dirt naps, maybe they will start getting the picture. No sympathy for a criminal here, hey....occupational hazard! lol I hope the victim will be ok.

Thugs, no job ,no ambition,no

Thugs, no job ,no ambition,no respect or value to society. Just behave the way you want and take what you want. What gets me they think they are such big men, in reality they would'nt make a pimple on a real man' behind.

Several years ago I was in

Several years ago I was in Savannah when a thug pulled a knife on me to steal my car, I told him UNCLE SAM taught me 17 ways to kill a man with my bare hands and it was to bad he would only get to see one of them. He took off running.
