Man who threatened to behead women will lose his eye, police say

Wow. The sentencing is getting tough, eh?

"Russell Bowman, who called himself an atheist, showed up with a large knife at the women's apartment in the 700 block of Tia Juana Street about 3:15 a.m., police said.

Another resident grabbed a shotgun and ordered him to put the knife down. When Bowman refused and began approaching, the person hit him with the butt end of the weapon, police said.

Doctors at Memorial Hospital reportedly told police the eye would have to be removed."

And they leave it up to the Docs, too?


Guess they have a list of body parts to lop off should a felon arrive in the ER.
