Look, I can’t ever support a person who took shots at innocent people, even with a BB gun.  But if you’re gonna lose your mind over something, this is a pretty worthwhile cause. On Sunday afternoon, 37-year-old Ricardo Jones of San Antonio, Texas had a three-hour standoff with a SWAT team and ended up getting into a shootout with the police because he was angry. Angry about . . . wait for it . . . his local Taco Bell raising the price of their Beefy Crunch Burrito. See, before the standoff, Ricardo had gone through the drive-thru of his favorite Taco Bell and ordered seven . . . count ’em, seven . . . Beefy Crunch Burritos.  He was appalled to find the price had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49. He was SO upset that he fired a BB gun at the Taco Bell manager . . . missed . . . then fled to a motel room.  He also fired a REAL rifle in the direction of some police cars, but just took out a window. After three hours of SWAT negotiations, they finally used tear gas to get him out of the room and subdued him.  No one was hurt in the shootout.  Ricardo is looking at two felony counts of aggravated assault and could get up to 40 years in prison. As for the Taco Bell price increase, the manager is 41-year-old Brian Tillerson.  He says, quote, “They did used to be 99 cents but that was just a promotion.
