The still rulers we carry around in aviation is more dangerous than a bb gun, let aside the hacksaws and air drills.

Hoof Hearted

PS. Considering the cops shot two bystanders while trying to hit a guy waving a metro card in Times Square last week, this kid is lucky they didn’t turn him into swiss cheese a la Amadou Diallo.

They kick little kids out of school for pointing a finger and yelling “bang” in the playground nowadays, or even drawing a picture of a gun. The response to this is surprising in that I’m surprised it was so reasonable.


@Anon – I appreciate the response from FDNY and NYPD. I’m sure the call to them wasn’t “HS student with BB gun”.

ME seems like you just don’t get it or really are ignorant…….just tell me how the police knew it was “only a bb gun”??? a bb gun can do serious damage if a person is shot for example in the face I guess you haven’t heard of any shootings in schools across the country??


I saw this happen. There were atleast 4 police vans and 4 or 5 squad cars, lots of police running around. Seems a bit over the top for a BB gun.

Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
