    DURHAM - The robber was holding a gun to 5-year-old Mary Long's head when a 3-foot-tall Mighty Morphin Power Ranger leapt into the room.

    "Get away from my family," 4-year-old Stevie Long shouted, punctuating his screams with swipes of his plastic sword and hearty "yah, yahs."

    The robber and his accomplice, who was waiting outside the apartment Friday night, fled with credit cards, jewelry, cash and other items that Stevie's mother, Jennifer Long, dumped from her purse...

    Hmmm, interesting that burglars were intimidated by that little guy.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Yeah, it's a good thing they only got away with credit cards, jewelry, cash and other items. Seriously though, at least no one was hurt.

    Re: 4-year old Power Ranger is a hero

    Anyone that remembers what it was like to be that age or that has a son can totally picture this happening.

    A few more excerpts:

    Enter Stevie.

    ..."During the robbery, a ... boy snuck into his bedroom, dressed himself in a Power Ranger costume and armed himself with a plastic sword," police said. "The child then exited his room and approached the armed suspect, in an attempt to protect his family."...

    ..."It tripped him out, and that's when they moved on," said Evans, who did not witness the incident...

    Stevie likes to think he cuts an intimidating figure in his red-and-black mask and foam suit that replicates the rippling muscles of the kiddie adventure show heroes. But Evans said the robber was more startled that Stevie was able to retreat to his bedroom and morph...

    ..."He fully believed he morphed," she said...
    Gotta love it.

    Great story, I'm glad it turned out that way.
    What kind of idiot puts a gun to a five year old's head.

    If that guy is ever drowning I hope someone throws him an anvil.

    Wow! Why on earth would the robbers be afraid of him? I'm surprised the little kid didn't get pistol whipped or worse. Thankfully it turned out like it did.
