A pocket knife? Really?
A weapons charge?
A Bible student?
A teenaged tourist, no less?
In a city where someone gets shot by a local hoodlum every day?
The cops there know their priorities, boy.
"Don't move," the cop said to the freckle-faced white kid carrying his Bible and a backpack. And carrying the kind of weapon that strikes fear in the hearts of every warrior. A little pocket knife. Gotta love that.
That cop ain't stupid. He knows if he goes out and actually attempts to fight crime (quelle horreur!), he might get his ass shot.
So he, instead, busts some little boy with a pimple problem.
And now a criminal record.
