Why the difference?
Ari Kohen looks at two similar but different - "totally different" - cases of men with BB guns in Wal*Marts:
In the case in Ohio, the guy was just walking around with an unloaded airsoft rifle and someone called the police, who arrived and immediately shot him to death. In this case, the guys were drunk and actually shooting the guns in the store … and they were calmly, appropriately arrested by police.Yeah. I guess.
So, what accounts for the difference?
I'll guess we'll never know.
