Words are mightier than the sword

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - November 24, 2010

Police say a Pennsylvania restaurant delivery driver cussed out a would-be bandit.

Police in Bethlehem report a man flashed a gun and demanded money from the delivery man.

But the guy shouted an obscenity at the crook and challenged him to shoot.

The bandit ran away.

While the confrontational tactic worked this time, The Express-Times newspaper reports police don't encourage it.
