Possession is 9/10 of the law

Not only is the statement without legal merit, you can override it with a good repo man, or heavy firepower.

From Mexico comes the news report that the Mexican government had seized five airplanes used by drug dealers. But the drug dealers weren’t going to put up with that.

I’m sure they tried bribes first but that obviously didn’t work. Barney Fife was guarding the planes. And I’ll let Reuters tell the story from here: “The group of around 20 men stormed the small airstrip at dawn, seized the officer's gun, tied him up, filled the planes with fuel and flew off.”

Hijacking is so much easier when you start with an empty plane.

You’d better chain up those submarines. These bandidos have cojones.

Update: The Mexican Government found the airplanes. (Hey, they were faster than the Fosset search.)
