Inflation Rage: SWAT Standoff in Texas Over 50% Food Price Increase

Author: Mac Slavo

Price increases will be felt with disdain and met with anger across the entire economic spectrum:

The price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49 and the man at the Rigsby Road Taco Bell drive-thru had just ordered seven.

The fast food customer was so disgruntled by the price hike he shot an air gun at the manager, displayed an assault rifle and pistol while in the restaurant’s parking lot, fled as police were called, and pointed one of his weapons at three officers who pulled him over. Fleeing when they opened fire, he barricaded himself in his hotel room — all over $3.50 plus additional tax.

All three of his weapons were found to be air-powered and not firearms.

It may not seem like a lot of money, but for many, $3.50 could be the difference between eating tomorrow or not. Ricardo Jones of San Antonio, TX experienced a 50% food inflation rate.
