Beware James X. Cryns, The Midwestern Piggly Wiggly Express Lane Vigilante

Angered that a Piggly Wiggly shopper was in the express lane with more than 10 items, a Wisconsin man began berating the woman, called her fat and ugly, and ended up being busted by cops for disorderly conduct.

According to a Saukville Police Department report excerpted here, last week’s Piggly Wiggly incident began when Grace Hernandez--with 37 items in her cart--approached an empty express line. After asking a clerk if she could check out there, Hernandez began emptying her cart.

That’s when James X. Cryns, 48, allegedly approached Hernandez and began verbally abusing her, police charge. Cryns asked Hernandez, “What is this? 80 items at a 10 items or less express lane?” When Hernandez replied, “I got permission. Why—do you have a problem with that?” To which Cryns replied, “I do have a problem with that. You’re fat and ugly.”

According to cops, Hernandez, 56, became afraid of Cryns, who she believed was “very aggressive towards her.” When Hernandez told Cryns that she was going to call 911 and report being threatened, he replied, “Oh, does he like fat and ugly women, too?” A cashier provided police with a similar account of the Piggly Wiggly encounter.

The 6’ 4”, 280 pound Cryns, a freelance writer, was arrested and issued a $429 disorderly conduct citation. Cryns did not respond to a message seeking comment about the Piggly Wiggly confrontation.

Thanks John. We heard you the first time. When you get down off your soapbox, note the 1st Ammendment is not a free-for-all like you at a buffet. Those who believe it is, are the ones who bring it under fire and threaten our liberties. Since you would spill your Pabst Blue Ribbon and choke on your pork rinds if anyone did this to you or your family, use caution when throwing rocks while living in a glass house. Next time, imagine this inbred was yellling at your mother/daughter/wife/boyfriend and see if you would agree with your own crap. Feel free to "tell [me] to go copulate with yourself while airborne". You'd never do it to my face, so take advantage of you right to free speech and continue to hide.
sorry about the multiple post above, this site didn't seem to do anything when I hit save....
So much for the 1st amendment to the Constitution (whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty, the media is always hot and horny to print up that someone was arrested on suspicion of something but almost never covers the convictions unless it's a celebrety case!?), so what if he thought she was a stupid fat [email protected] and told her so!? Really, though, he should have just complained to the manager about the the cashier that let the silly cow clog the the express lane with such a load.. and I bet she probably paid for it with a check or a card she didn't know how to work in the machine-that's what always happens to me.. Anyway, EXPRESS lanes should be just that, a few items and pay with cash only! And for those of you that are going to pick this post apart to flame me, don't bother, I'm jusdt going to tell you to go copulate with yourself while airborne! lol!
