That seems pretty fake, he's far too dark shaded for US cops to not kill him, his pets and his family for the mere act of being summoned to take care of his address for disturbing white folk.

Go ahead fark accounts that appeared from nowhere from pre-2010, fill this thread with your excuses to why this situation is supposedly normal vs actual reality.

This story really made me laugh.

Or the opposite. All zombies are bad.

The cops all had a good laugh over their zany circumstances before ransacking the apartment, shooting the dog, beating the tenant half to death, planting crack on him, and arresting him for resisting arrest.

"We're like, 'Nope, we're just screaming for Steven Stamkos.'"

A classic case warranting the intervention of mental health professionals.

In fairness, he was probably screaming that a lot last night watching that game.

Went to a shooting last night and a hockey game broke out {rimshot}
 
2020-09-25 12:15:53 AM  
I'm just glad he didn't get shot.
Which is really sad.

So? Did they? Did they shoot?

I know how he feels. I was watching the Packers game and I was yelling at the TV. I guess I got a little loud and the guy next door got freaked out just because I was yelling "Bill Johnson of 706 Elmview Ct, this is your neighbor! In 2 minutes I'm going to come over there with a shotgun and shoot your two cats! Then I'm going to strangle your wife Cindy, and set your two children, Jason and Lynn on fire, before finally shooting out your kneecaps, tying you to the bed, ripping the gas line from your stove and lighting candles everywhere so your farking house explodes with you still alive in it!" Of course the police came out, and I had to explain I was just yelling at the TV and got a little heated at a bad call by the ref, and wasn't actually threatening anyone. They all had a good laugh, and just asked me to keep it down a little.

Which of course I found to be kind of hypocritical, considering all the noise my neighbor made when his house exploded that night due to an unexplained gas leak. The nerve of some people...

Bruins and Penguins, actually, although my interest in the NHL is fading and I stick with the ECAC.
 
2020-09-25 12:30:30 AM  
Sounds like they were being annoyingly loud, so neighbor hears "shoot" and figures s/he can be annoying back at them.

Which would just be a sad case of bad neighbors if it wasn't for the fact that it seems like getting police called to a house, any house, is a chance or getting someone shot and killed.

It's probably too rational to say the shift meeting went over the game and drunk fan calls, isn't it?

He's lying.  Stamkos only had a couple of shifts early in the first (which granted, he did make at least one shot on & got a goal).

What's he trying to hide here...

I still want to see footage from the Saudi meeting where they pushed the cartoon as a way to handle Qatar.

Wow. I had something similar happen to me a few years ago. I was getting on a plane in Vegas when I saw an old friend I hadn't seen in years a few rows back. So I yell out: Hi Jack!

Next thing you know I have guns pointed at me and they're dragging me off the plane. I'm still trying to get off the no-fly list. Choose your words wisely.

That is so much cooler than my story
I'm sitting at a stoplight with a bunch of friends
and I realize we've got patrol cars on all our sides
front back and left and right
so I tell the driver I'm sitting in the backseat
I tell the driver
hey man I smell pig
Well apparently the cops heard me
We get pulled  over and we all got to go to jail that night

Obviously not paying attention.  The Stanley Cup Finals are inside the bubble.  Every game in the finals is being played in Edmonton, Alberta.

fusillade762: Do the neighbors think "Shoot" is the sound of a gun being fired?


Back about thirty some years ago during my brief stint as a theater stage manager, I acquired a reputation for offstage gun sound effects (due to an incident involving a production of The Bad Seed, which is another story). The last offstage gun sounds I provided were for a very broad western melodrama being put on by a tiny community theater in Waveland, Mississippi. There was only one shot, but the timing was crucial. The Bad Guy, named Whip somethingorother (the actor, I swear, looked just like Bluto from the Popeye cartoons) was confronted onstage by his saloon girl floozie (who fashioned an outrageous Mexican accent) because he had Done Her Wrong. She screamed, "Take THEES, SEENYOR WHEEP!", pulled a gun and fired. Simultaneously, I fired a cap gun backstage to provide the sound. It went perfectly every night...until the very last show. Floozie confronts Bad Guy, pulls gun, fires, so do I...and nothing happens. Caps were damp, gun jammed, I dunno. EVERYONE...on stage, backstage and IN THE AUDIENCE...yells BANG.

Last show I ever did there.

ok that just made my day.  came into thread to say that a 'cops acting rational' story is conveniently timed, but now i'm just happy.
