Off topic but interesting, at least to me

A helpful hint to all teenage wannabe-muggers out there - if you've got it in your head to go out and rob a transvestite prostitute, you might want to pick one that isn't 6-3 and 290 pounds:

The two men went into a nearby alley to transact business, [Hamilton County, Ohio Assistant Prosecutor Ryan] Nelson said, when [16-year-old assailant Rufus] Bowman pulled a gun.

The two men fought. The 5-foot-7, 230-pound Bowman fired his gun. The bullet hit [very large and now extremely angry transvestite Joshua] Bumpus in the arm, went through and lodged near his ribs.

Even though he was shot, Bumpus continued fighting - and won.

'He got the gun away from (Bowman), he grabbed (Bowman) by the hair and beat him down. He beat the (daylights) out of him,' Nelson said."

Bowman is now undoubtedly the laughingstock of the Ohio penal system, which is where he will be staying for the next three years.
