A pair of men who stole cookie money from a Houston area Girl Scout troop got a little more than they bargained for when one of the girls punched one cookie thief in the face and another girl held onto the car as it drove away. The perps are still at large, but they best move far, far away and change their names lest the get a green vested beat down for the ages.
The entrepreneurial troop had been selling their delicious wares for about 4 hours outside of a Wal-Mart on Saturday when a man approached the girls asking about cookie flavors. Another man pulled up in a car, and the first man grabbed the cookie cash and tried to make a run for it. But rather than letting the thieves escape, two of the girls chased after the men.
One grabbed onto the car and was dragged for a short distance, while the other reached into the passenger side window and punched the rapscallion in the face. Eventually, the robbers escaped with the $200 or so they stole, but at what cost? At the end of the day, they still took something that belonged to the Girl Scouts and got themselves punched in the face in the process, making an army of lifelong enemies and giving at least one Girl Scout a delicious first taste of blood.
When asked of the fate that awaited the perpetrators, Girl Scout senior Rachel Johnson said, "Who steals from a Girl Scout? I mean, seriously, it's like the worst thing ever. I hope your face hurts from when Iravia punched you — jerks!"
For as the Girl Scout promise goes,
On my honor,
I will try
To serve time
if someone steals from or otherwise crosses my sister
To be feared or risk living in fear,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law:
Blood in, blood out.
