If You Don’t Have a Brain, Borrow One

A police officer in Boynton Beach, Fla., had just parked his car in the police station’s parking lot when he noticed two men arguing in the street. One of the men spotted the officer and called over to him — “Hey, let me use your gun!” He explained he needed to take care of someone who he says robbed him. About that time another officer stepped out of the station; the man asked him, too, if he could “use” his gun. The two cops arrested the man, which caused him to say he was going to get his own gun, so he could shoot the two officers. Deondrae Hall, 38, was charged with disorderly intoxication, possession of cocaine, and threatening a public servant.
