In today’s society, you have to be extremely careful. Just because a phone case that looks like a gun might seem cool at the moment, it can actually cause more harm than good.
Friday, Alhambra Police responded to a call of a possible medical emergency. When they arrived, they found a person who was either sleeping or unconscious and there was a device that appeared to be a gun next to the driver’s hand.
This prompted police to call in their special forces team and after a short standoff, the person woke up. Turns out, he was just sleeping and the device was a phone with an attachment that looked like a gun in a gun holder.
This situation ended peacefully but it doesn’t always. Always be careful and reconsider the items that you carry, that can be easily mistaken for a weapon. Police already have a hard enough time distinguishing the difference between toy guns and real guns when it’s in the heat of the moment. Sometimes, that split moment means life or death for them.
