    BERLIN (Reuters) - A thief in the German town of Hamelin robbed an amusement arcade by threatening the attendant with a cup of coffee, authorities said Tuesday.
    "He wasn't going to pour coffee over her, he was going to hit her with the cup," a spokesman for local police said.
    Brandishing the steaming cup he had just ordered, the thief forced the 26-year-old to open the till and fled with cash.
    Police would not say how much money he had taken from the attendant, who had been alone in the arcade. "We don't want to encourage others to try this," the spokesman said.

    We need to enact legislation to immediately ban possession, or at least the open carry of coffee mugs in public places. Failure to do so will result in these kinds of acts, blood will run in the streets!

    I've actually heard of this before, that is, hot coffee being used to assault someone. As I recall the person actually did commit assault, and threw the hot coffee in the victims eyes. Instead of the guy in this story who just "brandished" hot coffee.

    Actually gives you a pretty good insight as to what a criminal may use as a weapon, completely legal stuff you might never even think of.

    Yeah, those styrofoam cups, they'll kill you alright. :upeyes:

    So if Germany bans coffee cups first and all of Europe follows, which will be the first state to ban them here? CA or NY?

    Was that a little coffee around your nostrils? :supergrin:

    If coffee is banned, only criminals will have coffee....
