PHUKET: -- Last night (September 11), Phuket police arrested a 17 year old from Had Yai, Songkhla, in Soi Hongyok-Utit, Phuket Town. He’d already committed 4 or 5 robberies and claimed that he robbed people after taking drugs.

 

At the scene police found a black BB gun, a red plate, green and grey Yamaha motorcycle, a helmet, two mobile phones, a shoulder bag, two shirts, jeans and 500 Baht cash.

 

“We initially got a report by 19 years old Siriporn Nadua on the same day that she was robbed while riding her motorbike nearby the Muang Phuket District Office intersection.

Too bad no Thai law-maker ever asked himself why toy guns in developed countries always have key feautures giving away it is just a toy (red tip, smaller size, bright colors, etc).

Because then it would be a toy...damn it Bob! It's like the fake silver plated six shooter I carried around in a holster for years...exactly like the Lone Ranger's!

 

We tried to keep toy guns away from our son when he was a child. Guns aren't toys. We fought it for years. One day he chewed his toast into the shape of a gun and started using it. I bought him a toy gun...a really realistic one. 

 

Sorry...you're right.

There's a huge flaw with bb guns and guns in general. Carrying one has a tendency to make you a target for getting shot at :)

Alprazolam is supposed to make you chilled out and relaxed.  Did the reporter forget to mention Yaba?
