Good thing no one was killed


When police spotted a gun-wielding suspect lurking in the shadows of a suburban front room, their response was swift.

Armed officers burst into the house, shouted at the owner to lie on the floor, and ordered him to surrender his weapon.

But efficiency turned to embarrassment when the “gunman” turned out to be a life-sized model of the video game character Lara Croft, complete with trademark outsized pistols.

    So did he get any cash for this flop out by cops?

    It was in the UK … they tried to find an excuse to prosecute him for alarming people with depictions of firearms, but gave up because it was getting too silly and too embarrassing.

    Police ego is a real and dangerous thing.

    Well, kids have been expelled from public schools in the U.S. for the unspeakable crime of drawing pictures of guns. We’re not far behind in the race to full-on mass insanity.
