No one ever listens to me when I say it either
I don’t normally do this two days in a row, but I just couldn’t resist.
This came from the Law & Order Briefs in the Local Picayne. It’s all rather dull until you get to the one brilliant part. Let’s see if you agree.
A man walking down the street and firing his gun in the air in a south-side… neighborhood late Monday was shot and wounded by a resident who told him to quit it, police said. (blah blah blah – boring parts) He ignored the resident’s warning to stop firing his gun and was shot by the resident. Police found the wounded man in the street. He is expected to survive. The resident who shot the man stayed at the scene and is cooperating with police.
First of all – yeah Arizona. Everyday I’m reminded I live in the wild west where everyone has a gun.
My favorite part of the story is the line “a resident told him to quit it.” I believe that is an acceptable legal defense in AZ.
“Your honor, I told him to ‘quit it’ and he didn’t listen.”
“NOT GUILTY!” Bang of a gavel.
It’s surely the defense I’m using.
