1. On March 18, police officers descended on a man in Maine. A tree removal crew reported that he was armed. It turned out that he had an actual sized tattoo of a handgun on his stomach that looked tucked into his belt. He was lucky that the police didn’t tell him to place the gun on the ground by the count of three or they would shoot. #Tattoo of a gun? That might be fun at airports, etc. Of course, he does have the right to bare tattoos. Freedom of Speech might also cover him. The Stupidity Law would apply.
2. I wrote about this previously. A #marijuana user left a large quantity of marijuana among some clothes donated to a Salvation Army outlet. The police could not identify the donor. If they could – Stupidity Law violation.
3. You may be following the trial of the Olympics athlete, #Oscar Pistorius, who police charged with first-degree murder in Pretoria, #South Africa. He shot his girlfriend because he thought she was an intruder. If that wasn’t stupid enough, the prosecution brought up an incident that happened earlier at a restaurant. Seems that Pistorius accidently shot a friend in the foot when he fired a pistol inside a Johannesburg restaurant. One friend passed a loaded gun to Pistorius under the table. The gun was loaded with one round in the chamber and, apparently, the safety off. The gun went off and shot another friend in the toe. You have to wonder about a friend who would pass a loaded gun with one round in the chamber and the safety off to another friend under the table. Duh! What could possibly go wrong? You also have to wonder about someone who pulls the trigger to see if a gun is loaded. The Stupidity Law would apply in this case.
4. Another item concerned two students at a New York state college. Police charged them with abusing a dog by getting it drunk. The evidence against them was a tweet about the party that included pictures of the two men holding the dog upside down over a keg and forcing it to drink beer. The police charged the two men with torturing and injuring an animal. Police rescued the dog but it declined to press charges. It said it could not remember what happened. If the two can’t be charged for under age drinking, then the Stupidity Law would get them.
5. I’m sure you may have other examples.
