The article was so sketchy about details, makes it seem there was more here than meets the eye, but I could be barking up the wrong tree....

Hey, JAG, thanks for the laugh! That is actually the first 'story' I read here, not even sure how I got to Topix...but I have never laughed so hard. Both at dude and the comments posted regarding his behavior.

I realize that was partially just a set up for your joke (LOL), but sketchy articles like this drive me crazy.

Were they saying that the perps and the victim had dinner together?

Did they tie him to the tree so he wouldn't chase them? If so, does the fact that he was still perceived as a threat to them mean he they didn't beat him very bad?

It's impossible to figure out what really happened from articles like this.
