An Arizona filmmaker trying to prove a point about police response time was arrested this week after making an amateur film in which a character dressed as a “terrorist” paraded through the busy streets of Phoenix wielding a fake rocket propelled grenade launcher.
We already know that police response time is generally shitty, so this retarded little stunt was uncalled for. It’s amazing that someone would do this, and not be worried about getting shot.
haha well YouTube user “Anon Filmmaker” (Michael D. Turley), isn’t anon any longer and on top of that he was charged with “creating a false impression of a terrorist act” and “endangerment contributing to the delinquency of a minor”
Calling this guy a “filmmaker” is doing a disservice to actual filmmakers out there. I bet he thinks this is going to make him famous and get him work.
Atlanta, GA. – A Fulton County mother was outraged Wednesday that her autistic son was suspended and charged with a felony over a picture he drew. The 14 year old is a student at Ridgeview Charter School in Atlanta.
Looks like it would be an interesting place to work. A few hundred cameras is a long way from the amount in the UK… but still I imagine that is their goal. Pretty troubling that they feel there is actually a requirement for that.
