    Black Friday shopper accused of gun threat

    Wisconsin makes national (CNN) news again: http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/11/26/...hopper.threat/

    A Wisconsin woman who cut in front of a long line of Black Friday shoppers was arrested, police say, after she allegedly threatened to shoot those she moved ahead of.

    Lanessa L. Lattimore, 21, attempted to cut in front of a line of "several hundred shoppers" at a Toys R Us store in Madison, Wisconsin, on Thursday, according to a Madison police report.

    Police arrested Lattimore after she allegedly threatened shoppers, though no gun was found at the scene, it said.

    "Everybody was cutting in line. But there was one girl who was threatening me, so I told her that I'd shoot her," Lattimore told CNN. "I'm not a violent person, but police charged me with disorderly conduct."

    She added, "I just wanted to get my daughter the toy that she wanted for Christmas, which probably won't be there when I go today."
    Now when THIS happened to a OCDO member, and he WAS THREATENED, the judge in that case said "Threatening to kill someone is protected free speech."

    Now that's a bunch of BS! You could say that about anyone, and I mean anyone, and you'd be protected. So if I tell the police I'm being threatened by someone, they say TS and they can't do anything to protect me? There are not enough words in the English dictionary to describe the lack of logic here.

    Would have been nice to see her reaction if someone was exercising their "silly" Constitutional right at that moment.
    That would have been hilarious. Bet she would have slunk quietly back to the end of the line. Then again, maybe not - look her up on Simple Case Search.

    She's a model citizen, all right. NINETEEN arrests or tickets in the past 2 1/2 years, and she's only 21 yrs old! (wait, make that 18 - one of the charges was dropped...) Real winner, threatening people who didn't take kindly to her cutting in line!

    I also posted it in the No Need For A Gun thread.

    She does sound like an upstanding citizen. /sarcasm

That's why I carry now, I realise the police will not protect me or my family i need to.
