There’s no fixing stupid. If you were going to film a rap video in public using firearms as props, wouldn’t you make sure that A) you cleared it with the cops, B) all the firearms were unloaded, and C) you you made the video in Arizona? Or at least somewhere where the neighbors wouldn’t get the heebie-jeebies when you fired the guns? According to a nearby resident standing nearby the four teenagers involved, the actors were equipped with an “assault rifle” and three handguns which were fully loaded. With extended magazines! That said, Carter was complacent . . .
“They were shooting a video, enjoying themselves, and then the police came,” Carter said.
FOX 2: “Did they have guns?”
“Everybody has guns,” Carter said. “I have guns. Who doesn’t have guns.”
Neighbors called 911 and when police arrived, the group fled and one fired a hand gun at an officer while running away.
The officer was not injured and did not return fire. But the suspect and the three others were taken into custody uninjured.
“They were shooting the video, putting in on YouTube,” said Carter. “And that was that. Glad nobody got killed by the police this time.”
What are the odds the youths will be back on the street in no time? We’ll keep an eye on YouTube in the meantime, in that “never let a good bust video go to waste” kinda way.
