Meh.. read what I have to say in the last paragraph after watching the video:
Full Story – NY Daily News
So what happens in a situation like this if there there is no video footage or eye witnesses? It says the “suspect” was arrested for attempted robbery and entering an automobile. If the suspect keeps denying it though then what? Looking at the mugshot pic, the guy looks to have some substance abuse issues. Will he just get out of jail ASAP and have the opportunity do the exact same thing to someone else?
Who’s filming the video btw?
Anyway the following opinion of mine may be unpopular, but I don’t really care if some of you don’t agree so I’m going to state it anyway. What kind of a douchebag (I’m talking about Hashim Fannin here who is the guy with the gun in the video) creates a “public figure” facebook fan page following the incident (calling himself “The man who isn’t afraid to embrace the 2nd amendment.”), a new promotional twitter account, and tries to turn #YouWokeUpStupid into a thing? Oh and “For bookings, contact email@example.com For usage or licensing, contact firstname.lastname@example.org” *EXTREME SMFH* How about you let the public decide if you’re worth talking about for more than a few more days? Trying to turn your little incident into a vehicle to make you a celebrity is incredibly tacky and laughably lame. This seemingly is what this country is going towards more and more every day though. Dudes who carry are now going to be at home practicing their own catchphrases in the mirror, just wishing a MF’er will so they can drop the one liner hopefully on film and rocket to stardom or at least get some beer money when some useless marketing company offers to cut them a check for video rights. This fame grab is so painful to witness, I feel bad for Hashim.
EDIT: He now is trying to capitalize on his non existent fame with catchphrase t-shirts. Buy one over at YouWokeUpStupid.com if you’re an idiot.
Thoughts? Who here has a one liner already on deck? Drop it in the comments.
