Update on Sunoco Robbery

The two women dressed as Ninjas who robbed a Sunoco station in Pennsylvania have been arrested, along with a third traveling companion.

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Three "ninja robbers" accused of wielding a samurai sword and a dagger when robbing a Richland gas station have been arrested in Kentucky, police said Friday.
Vanessa Waisbrot-Yobst, 18, James Riley, 20, and a 17-year-old female were arrested Thursday in Shelbyville, Ky., according to Northern Regional police Chief Robert Amann, who said all three are from the North Hills.
Apparently the trio was on their way to the promised land of California. Will, of MSNBC's Clicked, suggests we use this event as an opportunity to declare war on all ninjas. I would urge caution. Since we all possess a little ninja inside, this could become a slippery slope. Eventually we would have congressmam Tom Tancredo suggesting we bomb Japan (like he suggested we bomb Mecca).

This story had potential, kind of a Natural-Born-Killers-Bonnie-and-Clyde thing. But their adventure was very brief and uninspiring, and their ninja skills were obviously lacking.
