Fake Ammo Causes Real Panic on MBTA Bus in Brighton



Fake Ammo Causes Real Panic on MBTA Bus in Brighton

At about 4:20 PM on Friday July 10, 2015, officers assigned to District D-14 (Brighton) responded to a call for a person with a gun on an MBTA bus in the area of Cambridge and Harvard Streets. Officers learned that the driver had pulled the bus over as passengers began calling 911 when a male suspect boarded the bus with what appeared to be military grade ammunition strapped around his waist. The driver stated that the passengers were in a panic, fearing that the suspect was about to pull out a weapon. The suspect, later identified as Kevin Young, 26, of Watertown, exited the bus and was stopped by police on Penniman Road at which time it was discovered that the ammunition was fake. Officers recovered 69 replica bullets in all. The suspect was wearing what was described as spiked fighting gloves and spiked leather bracelets.

The suspect was placed in custody and will appear in Brighton District Court on charges of Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Unlawfully Carried Dangerous Weapon and Disorderly Conduct.

Gun control hysteria has reached its apex. The guy is a heavy metal rocker, he had no ammunition -- not that it should be a crime to do so -- nothing dangerous or a weapon yet he's looking at jail time.

The only thing he's guilty of is being a fashion cliché.

Some people seriously need to learn to control themselves before they reach out to control others.

6. Arrested for riding while punk. Faux ammo belts were in style in Austin before the punk scene...

 

Some folks took it up as a style to show some kind of symbolic identity with the more extreme leftists advocating violence. Then the punks got a hold of it and all went to pot.
