Sin_City_Superhero: DeSpain told Madison.com it isn't illegal for someone to aim a radar gun at traffic, and the man was allowed to keep it."He apologized numerous times," DeSpain said.The cops should be the ones issuing the apology. They drew-down on, and handcuffed a 70-year old man who wasn't breaking the law.
cgraves67: I could totally see some of the old fogies in my neighborhood doing this. They retire and get bored, so they appoint themselves busybody neighborhood pocket dictator.
tukatz: Not a crime, but you could get in legal trouble if someone's sleazy lawyer proves that your creation caused an accident by distracting someone. "And then I ran into those 5 parked cars because I was too busy staring at the squad car and putting my cell phone down."
Benjimin_Dover: So these cops don't know what a radar gun looks like? I call BS.
grinding_journalist: tukatz: So the old coot was impersonating a police officer by showing everyone his radar gun?I hope his wife bans him to months of raking leaves and coupon clipping.Would it be a crime to create a life-size 2d replica (vinyl or wood) of the profile of a cop car and leave it almost-visible on your property? People speed on my street all the time, and my driveway is situated in such a way that I could hide my "cop car" in it and have it be seen from both directions. I feel like this is probably a crime, just because.
Egoy3k: Not News: 70-year-old man gets bored yelling at people on his lawn. News: Decides to point radar gun at traffic to slow them down. Fark: Finds out radar gun can be mistaken for a real gunOnly by morons.
