Too good for his own good.

Apparently if you emote sincerely enough, you can convince people that the airsoft gun you're holding is a real pistol and that you really, really intend to kill them with it. You can tell they believe your performance when they shoot you in the face.
Metro police had charged Sullivan with 146 offenses since June 1989. His last arrest was for trespassing Nov. 20.
Sounds like his loss is no loss.

No word on whether the guy taking the dirt nap is going to be nominated for a posthumous Academy Award for Best Actor or not.

(N.B.: When you are involved in a defensive shooting and the cops show up and they know the decedent by name, odds are good that it will be found a righteous shoot.)

(H/T to Unc.)

If you're around for lunch today or tomorrow, let me know (shoot me an email). I'll be around.

Heh. Instead of saying something like (H/T to Unc.) you could say (And a tip o' the Tam to Unc.)

That is, unless you're wont to shoot punsters on sight. In that case, never mind.

Sounds like the punk was trying to get his hands on a real gun. Somehow, I doubt his plans for that gun involved getting a hundred bucks at the next buyback.

146 offenses as an adult, who knows how many as a minor.

Amazing this piece of shit lasted as long as he did.

Yay! He . . . . uh . . . won? Right? I think that's right.
Good on him.

In this day of dumber and dumber criminals, wouldn't it be a hoot if dirtbag didn't know his gun wasn't a real one?

And you know you've really done the cops a favor when they not only recognize the decedent, but high-five you for taking him out.

I would award Mr. Gordon both ears, and the tail.

Am I the only one having flashbacks to the movie "Snatch"?

"Now, seein' as your guns 'ave "Replica" written on the side of 'em, an' mines got "Desert Eagle Point Five Oh" down the side of it..."

Personally, I would have asked to be reimbursed for the ammo from whatever was in the deceased wallet.
