A wheelchair bound man recently surrendered to a police bomb-disposal robot, which is becoming all too common. The guy surrendered after unsuccessfully negotiating for a free pizza during a hostage situation in a Virginia post office.
Taylor initially fired shots from the building in Wytheville, but no one was injured. The drama came to an end when police ordered him to let the hostages go and come out with his hands up. Soon after, Taylor and three others left the post office.
A team of SWAT police sheltered behind vehicles as Taylor wheeled himself out and “surrendered” to a bomb-disposal robot.
As you can see from the pic above, the robot clearly says, “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me punk!” Jabba The Nut was wise to immediately put his hands up.
