I’m just glad no one was hurt. Police response to a comparable call ended catastrophically for Daniel Shaver

The Venn diagram of that kind of idiot and the kind of idiot who would buy a bong shaped like a rifle in the first place is a circle.

I support the jailing of people with gun shaped bongs. Ok, not really. But sheesh, just do meth like the rest of the ammosexuals.

I once had six cop cars converge on my house after I wielded a small, dayglow green squirt gun in my front yard on a major Tucson street. I’m glad that they didn’t shoot me, as one of the cops said he would have if he had seen it himself.
It’s a fine line.

I’m no behavioral profiling expert but I think he may have been high.

Cops called to a potential armed situation. The perpetrator is arrested. I played, “I guess he was white”… Score one for me!

Lucky he wasn’t a traditionalist.

Is it really a replica of a weapon if police can immediately identify is as not a gun? I mean we live in a world where police get away with shooting people with the excuse they think a cell phones in their hands is a gun and most people have a cell phone on them at all times in public.

Easy fix. Slip a rifle shaped like a bong into his stash.

The video said “gold colored”. In my image search, this is the best I could find, which is technically a hookah, but close enough?

Talk about a smoking gun.

… completely unharmed. If he was a white supremacist they would have taken him to Burger King after.

All they have to do is say they felt threatened. The bar isn’t set low, it’s resting on the ground.

Mind blowing.

Was he stoned when this transpired? Because that’s a good excuse if he was, I’m saying anyways.

I’m going home now, and recommend everyone else does too. You win for today. Well played.
