Is that mp3 player loaded?
Geeklawyer chuckled somewhat when he read to Metro story about some poor chump who made the mistake of holding his black mp3 player with both hands causing some nervous nellie to think it was a pistol. Much panic was then caught when he was arrested at gunpoint after police chased the bus down. As he was listening to music he couldn’t hear their challenge and reached for the player to turn it off so he could hear. How that didn’t end up in him being shot is hard to fathom. He is clearly the luckiest man in London. Lucky he isn’t a Brazilian electrician, or a Muslim.
What was outrageous was that having reased what was going on the police still insisted on arresting him and taking his DNA which will now be kept permanently along with a record of his arrest for suspected arms offence. Nice.
