Thread: Taxi Driver Shoots Man in Bin Laden Mask

    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) take note: You wouldn't be safe in Costa Rica. A startled taxi driver shot and wounded a jokester wearing a plastic mask of the al-Qaida leader, police said Tuesday.




    Leonel Arias, 47, told police he was playing a practical joke by donning the Bin Laden mask, toting his pellet rifle and jumping out to scare drivers on a narrow street in his hometown, Carrizal de Alajuela, about 20 miles north of San Jose.



    Arias had startled several drivers that way on Monday afternoon. But when he jumped out in front of taxi driver Juan Pablo Sandoval, the motorist reached for a gun and shot him twice in the stomach. He was hospitalized in stable condition.



    "For me and I think for anybody else at a time like that one thinks the worst and so I fired my gun," Sandoval told Channel 7 television.



    Police declined to detain Sandoval, saying he had believed he was acting in self-defense.

    Maybe the taxi driver was thinking about the reward.

    I think in every city in the world - taxi drivers get abused by passengers
    there are endless events where taxi drivers get shot, stabbed, robbed, threatend, insulted.
    Their job is simply to drive people from A to B, for not very good income and they get little respect. (how many times have you thought he drives to slow)
    I would be paranoid as hell with every malaka that enters the car.

    ive thought the opposite: how am I gonna make it alive if he doesnt slow down this cab?

    thats in the city... up here I just pray they show up at all

    on topic though, I dont think the guy deserved to get shot... but running about and scaring motorists with a gun on you just isnt funny.... forget about the mask. Its just asking for trouble, and I think there should be charges they can press against the man for doing it.
