Cabbie lauded for thwarting shooting by convincing teen he had voodoo12/1/2012
Tweeps are praising a West African cabbie who may have thwarted a tragic school shooting today by convincing a pistol-wielding teen he had voodoo medicine. The anonymous New Jersey driver told reporters he picked the teen up outside Trenton Central High School for a roundtrip fare. After stopping at the boy's house, the kid got back in with bloodshot eyes and shaking, pulling out a gun and saying he was going to kill classmates in the cafeteria. The quick-thinking cabbie stayed calm, falsely persuading him he'd been a rebel fighter and telling the teen if he could wait until 3 p.m., he'd give him medicine to make him "disappear." It worked — not quite voodoo but pretty magical negotiating skills. [Source]
