SHOOT ME! Pleads Douglas, Wyoming Peeping Tom
Oh, I'm sure it's happened to all of us a few times in our lives. We're doing something embarrassing, get caught, and mumble the words "Just SHOOT ME!"
But in this case, I think it was more of a challenge than a wish.
Douglas Wyoming. A suspicious-looking man was spotted looking into the backyards of residents.
People who saw the man told the police that they thought he was acting erratically.
It didn't take long for the cops to find the man and approach him.
Upon seeing the cops the man pulled a screwdriver and pointed it at the cops saying "Shoot me."
The police ordered the man to drop the screwdriver. They even just tried talking him into putting it down.
20 minutes later they had simply had enough and just tased the guy.
No reason has been given behind the man's activities. He's now being mentally evaluated.
The lessons learned here are simple:
NEVER bring a SCREWDRIVER to a GUNFIGHT!
No, wait, that's not right.
NEVER bring a SCREWDRIVER to a TASER FIGHT!
See, because the police tased him, so... not a gunfight.
I think what makes this man's activity suspicious is that he was snooping around the back yards of homes in Douglas, Wyoming.
Have you ever been to Douglas? There is nothing worth seeing in people's backyards. Not that I've looked, mind you.
I do hope this guy turns out okay. But, for the record, he could have really gotten himself killed.
Wyoming has more guns per capita than any other state. Snooping around people's backyards is an easy way to get shot even if you don't ask for it.
By snooping, you're asking for it.
