Thanksgiving Special: Shopper Tenderizes Turkey On Carjacker’s Head

By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love

There are so many things you can do with a Thanksgiving turkey. You can roast it or fry it. You can make turkey soup, salad, and sandwiches with the leftovers. Or you can leave it frozen and thwart carjackings by clubbing thugs in the head with your bird.

From the Associated Press:

Stopped. Cold turkey. North Carolina authorities say a shopper clubbed an alleged carjacker with a frozen turkey as he tried to steal a woman's car in a grocery store parking lot Sunday. . . .

Despite serious head injuries, [the alleged carjacker] got away in [the victim’s] car and hit several other cars as he fled. But police arrested him a short time later.

He faces several charges including assault inflicting serious injury.

I know that 2 days before thanksgiving I am spending just as much money on ammo as food, I imagine I am not the only one stocking up on steel shot and .243 for the upcoming Holiday off-time. The situation could have gotten very ugly had she swung that turkey in a bag also loaded down with .22's.
