I can't believe it. I don't care how much people try to defend this officer. He was clearly in the wrong and should be punished immediately. Anyways, here's what went down:


TL;DR - Death Gun cosplayer gets mistaken for a jihadist by a stupid cop and gets killed.

Here's the article for anyone who's interested. I recommend reading it yourselves to understand how stupid this is. It goes into greater detail and you'd be shocked with what you learn.
Warning: Some images may be graphic. Although, it doesn't get more graphic than showing the victim's body lying on the sidewalk with a blanket covering him. Still, I warned you.

So, what do you guys think?

Too much?



Edit: Well, this joke was fun. Ok mods, feel free to lock this if you want. April Fools is over for most of us anyways.

Damn, I know people hate the anime but damn... Okay tasteless humor is out of the way.

Cops are trigger happy. That is why I do not trust the lot of them. I know there are good ones that use reason instead of bullets but all it takes is for you to run into that one bad one to end your life.

The sad part is, is that this is entirely plausible.

That link...

What the cop did was very ignorant since he even told him that he has a fake gun. Can I have the actually article link?
