Another Kid gets shot

Post by Guges Mk3 » Tue May 12, 2009 9:02 am

For those of you that think your immune from getting shot playing in your "backyard"

I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!

I'd hazard a guess there is more to that story than meets the eye...fifteen year olds don't typically play "cops and robbers."

I'm glad the kid wasn't killed, and I hope the deputy is okay with what he had to do - it will stay with both of them for the rest of their lives.

Most should also know better than to point a gun - fake or otherwise - at a cop. And if he was just playing "cops and robbers" why would he point it at the officer in the first place?

I agree, it's rather strange.

Maybe he was getting into his role as a robber?

Another incident here in Hawaii...it won't make the news. But, it did happen.

An Old Hippy Lady called the Police saying there is a kid running around the park with a gun. 4 Officers responded and found the "kid" with a clear plastic "Wally World Special" with an Orange Tip.

Hippy lady is a moron, kid is stupid for playing airsoft in the park. Airsoft is "banned" in public places in Hawaii, you can only use airsoft on "Private" land. kid got a Misdemenor Citation for Airsoft violation.
