If you are doing to do something, you may as well do it is such a fashion that leaves people wondering how exactly you managed to pull it off.

I will never understand how that error happens.

I want a french fry shooting potato gun! I'd have to go with the larger caliber so I could get steak fries out of it.

You're right, I don't know you well enough haha and that would be awesome Thumbsup

RE: Potato Robbery
Actualy this isnt that stupid.

The charges are considerably worse if you have a real weapon on you.

If I were to rob a bank or store I would keep in mind that I might get caught and would therefor use a fake weapon.

Good point, robbery is a bad charge to face. Armed robbery is a far worse charge.

I agree except that the choice of fake weapons was smart. It doesn't specify, but I'd guess that if he had shaved the potato down to look like a gun they would have mentioned it. Just sitting at my desk, I have at least 10 items that could mimic a hidden gun better than a potato. But I doubt this guy put much thought into the crime further than "point 'gun', get money, leave" and thought he had a fool proof plan.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Considering just how much lawyers love three sided double-talk in triplicate, it would not surprise me if the prosecution put up the argument that he was technically 'armed' and posed a threat to the employees of the victim businesses with his 'weapon'.

That is true as well and if the prosecutor wanted to, could probably wrangle that charge into it. However, you're talking about a whole other classification of crime when it is committed while in possession of an actual gun. Even minor misdemeanors become felonies if a gun is in any way shape or form involved.

Selling a joint? Minor slap on the wrist misdemeanor.

Selling a joint and you happen to have a gun in the vicinity? Felony with mandatory prison sentencing and loss of rights to own a gun. Even if the gun is unloaded, locked, and never used during commission of the crime.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

If he was charged for armed robbery, he could always put in an " a peel " against such a harsh sentence.

Oh dear, tis worse I'm getting......

Why do potatoes make good detectives?

Because they keep their eyes peeled.
