The Mobile Police Department has issued the following press release, hoping to influence and inform some of the less intelligent and more ignorant members of our community.
If you, or someone you know, happens to be ignorant or of below average intelligence, please read and study the press release and help make our community a safer place. Yes, please pass this press release on to the stupid people.
"New Year's Eve is approaching, and the Mobile Police Department would like to remind citizens about the dangers of discharging firearms into the air during celebrations. Celebratory gunfire is a danger to property and human life.
Bullets that are fired into the air can travel great distances and cause significant amounts of property damage to vehicles, homes and countless other items. Along with property damage, stray bullets can randomly hit a person and cause bodily injury or death.
Citizens are urged to contact the Mobile Police Department at 251-208-7211 if they observe someone firing a gun into the air. Individuals arrested for a stray bullet that strikes someone’s property or injures another person could be charged with a felony."
Every year, the police department gets many calls about guns being discharged on New Year's Eve. Sometimes, people get hurt.
Here is a reminder from 2012 : BULLET RIPS THROUGH ROOF ON NEW YEAR'S EVE
And another from 2017: TODDLER HIT BY STRAY BULLET ON NEW YEAR'S EVE
And from 2003: GUNFIRE AGAIN RINGS IN THE NEW YEAR
Celebratory gunfire is dangerous, and stupid! Stay Safe!
