If there was a Girl Scout badge for being gutsy, two Texas Scouts would be first in line after they punched a thief for running off with their hard-earned cookie cash.
At a Houston Wal-Mart in Texas on Saturday, a car pulled up next to a cookie sale setup, probably not ready for the tour de force that was about to ensue. The passenger got out of the car, nabbed the cash box and hopped back in, intent on making a quick run for it. But Fifteen-year-olds Rachel Johnson and Iravia Cotton did not let the perpetrators go without a fight.
Cotton punched the passenger, while Johnson “jumped on the getaway car.” Unfortunately, Johnson was dragged as the thieves left, and was later treated for minor bruises and scrapes.
According to Girl Scout policy, the girls are responsible for the money stolen, but several media figures such as Soledad O’Brien from CNN have already vowed to pitch in by buying more cookies. Either way, the message is clear: Don’t mess with Texas, and definitely do not mess with these Scouts.
