AugieDoggyDaddy: So the guy basically said "Please put me in jail."   And they obliged him,  based solely on a vauge threat that he himself provided to them.  Why didn't the law just say "Aw,  silly buuger.  Run along now.  Come back and see us when you've really done something bad.  There's a good lad"

Because if he had actually made the attempt, and was either killed immediately by Harry's security detail, or, somehow, against all odds, managed to somehow get the drop on a bodyguard and put a few rounds into him, this little trip to the station house would have been reported, and these cops would have been blamed for it.  Was he really going to make the attempt?  Probably not.  But lone lunatics with a crappy plan and a little luck have pulled off wackier things.

Starshines: I love the little note tacked on to the end seemingly for the sole purpose of making Morrissey look like a tool.

/HUGE Smiths fan.

But Morrissey IS a tool.
