Wow, That’s A Riot!

Yes, I know I said I was taking the rest of the day off, but this high-larious story was too hysterical not to share.

So late last night we started receiving multiple calls for vandalized ATMs. Usually the thugs pry the front of the machine and try to swipe the safe or at least some of the money inside. Last night, they were trying to open the ATMs with explosives.

A man died Tuesday morning after trying to blow up an ATM machine near Kensington, the Philadelphia Police said.

That’s a shame.

Around 6:15 a.m., police found a 24-year-old with trauma to his upper body. They said the man was “attempting to break into an ATM with explosives,” which were recovered at the scene. He was transported to Temple University Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Aww, and he was just turning his life around.

The Philadelphia bomb squad and the ATF could be seen investigating the scene, photographing and collecting evidence around the mangled, blown-out machine outside Sidekicks Sports Bar at 2207 N. 2nd Street. The ATM was a stand-alone machine on the sidewalk, not connected to a bank.

Looks like the Sidekick Sports ATM kicked this dude to the side.

  1. Reminds me of the scene from “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” where they calmly stood a few feet from the railway car and one of them said, “That ought to be enough dynamite.”


  2. TX Nick – Yeah, but in real life, sometimes guys get ‘sploded. I’m sure George Floyd is proud of this guy’s work on behalf of his name.


  3. Well worth the wait for a really great “Feel Good Story of the Day.”
    I might have to repost this on the Antzinpantz blog.
    I do feel kind of sorry for the people who had to wipe up the mess. It probably ruined their lunch.

  4. Proof – The man was found with a sign which read “Yikes!”

    RG – Here’s my blunt assessment; it you lose your life while rioting, terrorizing, or stealing, that’s on you. Don’t come to me for empathy or sympathy. You’re dead because you chose to die.

    Ingineer – I guess he didn’t want to spend the time and effort selling all the items he likely looted.
