In 2011, a 78-year-old man in Hobbs was trying to accommodate three young men who came to his his house late one evening asking to use a telephone for an emergency. He went to grab his cordless phone but when he came back, the three forced their way into the home, pushed him to the floor and demanded any cash he had.
Unbeknownst to them, he had grabbed a wicked looking meat cleaver on his way down to the floor and began threatening the intruders with it.
Seeing they were no match for the cleaver-wielding man, the would-be robbers quickly fled the scene on foot.
The moral is that it’s not the size of the man in the fight that counts — it’s just how big his meat axe might be.
