Try To Make Baby Smile: Go To Jail

Try To Make Baby Smile: Go To Jail

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police scrambled eight patrol cars filled with armed officers after a man in his 50s pointed a toy ray-gun at a baby and said `Pow, Pow`.

The man, who has not yet been named, was arrested earlier today after he approached the baby and its mother with a `silver ray-gun` which lights up and makes a buzzing noise when the trigger is pulled.

Onlookers in Hove, East Sussex, were astonished when the police cars sped to the scene to apprehend the man."
Daily Mail

The mother should be ashamed for calling the cops, the man may have been a nuisance but he wasn`t a threat to the baby. Instead of calling the police, she should have simply told him to go away.

The toy ray-gun doesn`t bear the slightest resemblance to a real gun, the foolish guy was just trying to get the baby to smile.

I hope the hapless dude has learned his lesson, the next time he wants a baby to smile he should simply make a funny face. And I hope the mother won`t send for the calvary the next time someone tries to make her infant laugh.

It`s no laughing matter when eight patrol cars show up to arrest a guy holding a toy ray-gun that lights up and makes a buzzing sound when the trigger is pulled.
