'Ninja' smashes car through Apple Store, escapes

'Ninja' smashes car through Apple Store, escapes In what amounted to little more than a botched robbery attempt, a man dressed in a white shirt and a white hooded mask crashed a stolen car through the front of an Apple Store in Greensboro, North Carolina.
A security guard described the man as white, and wearing a full "white ninja suit."

Nothing was taken from the store after the crash, and the guard says the ninja vanished from the scene immediately.

There was no other comment except to say that the car was a stolen Honda Accord from somewhere in the state and that the crash took place at 4:40 AM.

The fact that he was wearing a ninja suit makes it an robbery if he was wearing a turban it would be a failed bombing attempt.

I just can't imagine thinking to throw on a ninja suit, but not thinking enough to try and take something from the store. I dunno. That doesn't make sense to me unless he or she was just that stupid.

So was he another zealot like the BBC thought too? I mean this is almost like the blog I wrote... LINK!
I mean... I made this stuff up... Crap! I only had, what? a whopping 200 readers? I mean send up the balloons...

This is just too funny! And in South Carolina... Gotta love our rednecks...

at least this ninja is good at disappearing. Now he needs to work on his driving skills.

What makes this a robbery is the car used to smash into the store was stolen

113.6.2011 23:08

i dont understand...he could've sold the car to some sucka' and used the money to buy an ipad. Not pretend to be a ninja...i gotta admit that'd be a great rush to run from security like that.

Wouldn't that in fact make it a failed assasination attempt?

The only person in the store was the security guard; I don't think that it was an assassination attempt.

This guy should get a job as a medical specimen; I am sure scientists would love to figure out how his heart keeps beating when he has no brain whatsoever.

maybe his only goal was to cause damage to Apple owned Property, in which case he succeeded at doing.

He should have used one of Steve's cars...a heavy Bentley would have done a lot more damage, and Steve would have felt the blow personally.

maybe he was testing security.crash a car through the store window and make sure you can get away without being caught.now he knows he can get in and out of the store without being caught next time he might steal something.

A dying man could probably careless about his Bentley's right now, besides after a couple of chemo sessions the only thing he's feeling is the burn and the porcelain of a toilet.

You have to have a certain amount of acquired wealth for it to be an assassination... Which begs the question...

How much money do you have to make before an "attempted murder" becomes "attempted assassination"?

It is about fame...shoot at a politician and it is attempted assassination...shoot at his wife; who shares ownership of everything and therefor is equally rich; and it is attempted murder.

Was the wealth obtained because he was a man-whore or because she was a gold bricker? One could be a mercy killing too?
