That Ammo Belt You Bought At Hot Topic Is Dangerous

Not only was his “replica ammunition” belt enough to incite “panic” on a bus Friday afternoon, but police noted he was “wearing what was described as spiked fighting gloves and spiked leather bracelets,” according to the Boston Police Department’s official website.

According to the MBTA Transit Police, Kevin Young was arrested and taken into custody, with a charge of disorderly conduct, after he exited the bus and seen walking down a nearby road. There’s no indication he behaved in a threatening manner or said a word to anyone.

Earlier this afternoon, charges were dropped, with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office telling local media “based on the totality of circumstances, however, including confirmation that the cartridges on said belt could not and weren’t intended to be fired, prosecutors dismissed the charges at arraignment in Brighton Municipal Court.” (Source)

Man, I hope none of you guys wear one of my Keep Calm And Carry One shirts around Boston unless you want to end up on the news.  I have so many newer shirts now that one kind of fell out of my rotation, but every time I do wear it I constantly get dirty looks or sometimes smiles with a head shake from “cool moms” who get the reference but aren’t necessary on board.

Although I think it’s ridiculous that an ammo belt would get that much unwanted attention I still think Hot Topic should be banned.

Can you imagine if he had a pressure cooker with him, which he just picked up from Bed Bath & Beyond?  That would have shut the entire city down, and he probably would have been dead.

Thoughts?
