Indecent Exposure

Via Raw Story:

A Georgia man panicked parents and children at a local park and baseball field by randomly walking around and displaying his gun to anyone he encountered in the parking lot.

According to witnesses who spoke with WSB-TV, the man wandered around the Forsythe County park last Tuesday night showing his gun to strangers, telling them “there’s nothing you can do about it.”

“Anyone who was just walking by – you had parents and children coming in for the game – and he’s just standing here, walking around [saying] ‘You want to see my gun? Look, I got a gun and there’s nothing you can do about it.’ He knew he was frightening people. He knew exactly what he was doing,” said parent Karen Rabb.

Rabb said that the man’s intimidating behavior panicked parents causing them to hustle children who were there to play baseball to safety after the man refused to leave.

“It got to the point where we took the kids and brought them into the dugout and the parents lined up in front of the dugout,” Rabb said.

Police report they received 22 calls to 911 reporting the man.

After deputies arrived, they questioned the man who produced a permit for the handgun. According to authorities, since the man made no verbal threats or gestures, they couldn’t arrest him or ask him to leave.

Substitute the word “penis” for “gun” in this story and this man would be in jail.  As he should be.  But now it’s perfectly legal to wave around a lethal weapon in Georgia.

Dr. Freud, call your office.

6 barks and woofs on “Indecent Exposure

  1. You beat me to it. It’s called exposing yourself in public or public indecency. Where was his raincoat?

  2. I read where that law didn’t take effect until July 1. There must be some kind of difference between the right to carry and the right to carry on like an idiot. Inducing public panic maybe.

  3. And of course the NRA solution to this would be a posse of packing parents who could have kept this guy in his place – or sent him to another one (six feet under). Because there’s nothing like more guns to make everyone safer.
