Woo hoo! Post # 650.
Hurry! I need to know how this “judge” will avoid prosecution!
He won’t. At they very least, they caught him holding a gun and pointing it at someone. He’s going to jail for that.
Holding a gun and pointing it at someone isn’t illegal, by itself. It’s all about context.
Isn’t it at least assault? I mean you probably still need to prove intent, but it is definitely an action. Putting another in fear of an unwanted touching.
Indeed, I’ve not only pointed a gun at people but shot them. Real gun, automatic to boot. The bullets however were blank and the targets were participants of that exercise, not unsuspecting passers-by. Fully legal.
Anyway Bahr clearly broke the law, I reckon.
I don’t think Bahr was carrying a paintball gun.
My point (which I should have, you know, made) was that not getting Miranda’d isn’t a “get out of jail free” card. They just can’t use what you said against you. Maybe they can’t get him for the bank robbery, but they can certainly get him for anything they may have actually observed, like the possible assault. And don’t tell me you think that gun is actually licensed.
Yes I fully agree.
“whole nother story”?? Please say you did that by accident…
Right On! Another warrior on the right side in the grammar wars.
After poking through the pages prior to this…they didn’t actually seem to have re-mirandized the Cheese at that point. Offscreen perhaps?
Isn’t that what they were doing in panel 3?
