If he would have had a gun in his mouth and a carry permit he would have been OK.

just showing the knife is a threat he doesn't have to say a word. but better that part of town than this part of town. now where is the story about the man knocking on a door showing a gun in the 1900 block of w 31st st ?

LOL, everyone knows this probably isn't worth of news, but it's interesting, I suppose, knife in mouth (hoof in mouth)? Sorry, insane parallel.

If he's less careful he'll be speaking with a forked tongue.

Was this Lawrence man really from Lawrence or a guest of the wet shelter?

how do you threaten someone with a knife in your mouth? Does the knife not fall out when you open your mouth to speak said threats? Secondly, who carries a knife in their mouth, other than pirates.
