    Talking IDIOT In PGH Gets The Darwin Award Today

    PITTSBURGH SWAT was called out...Streets/sidewalks Downtown were blocked off...School & Bldg (Pgh Culinary Academy) Evacuated ~ Police & News Chopper Flying Overhead. Traffic was ALL tied up.
    Intensive Building search.
    A call went in to PGH Police about a man with a scoped rifle up on a rooftop in Downtown Pittsburgh.
    The idiot walked into the building with an exposed rifle & then was seen up on the roof.
    It turns out that it was a scoped pellet rifle & he wanted to shoot pigeons that were on the roof. His boss said it would be OK.

    Friendly, Helpful, Advice....Post 9/11 do not go up on any rooftops with an exposed Scoped Rifle.

    This guy is extremely lucky that PGH Swat didn't just shoot his dumb, lame, ass right off the roof. Really STUPID.

    Meanwhile the guy probably cost the city upwards of 10 grand.
    Oh Well, looking on the bright side...good real life practice for PGH Police & SWAT. They handled the situation FLAWLESSLY.

    Ahhhh - well there was someone who seemingly was at least one sandwich short of a full picnic

    Incredible! Thinks - his boss also was short a sandwich!! In this day and age (sadly) this will NOT go down well!! Was a time when it would have been fine of course.

    Well QK, in my opinion, he doesn't get a Darwin. To get the Darwin Award one of the prerequsites is that he remove himself from the gene pool.

    Now if SWAT had blown him off the roof he would be a sure winner.

    Maybe not too bright, but was it legal? Was he excercising his rights?

    Legal? No idea.

    Stupid, for sure!

    And what kind of backstop did he have?

    Maybe local Fish & Game should pay him a vist after everyone else gets thru with him. . .

    Removed From The Gene Pool

    OK...Let's give him a honorary mention then & we'll grant him one year "Grace Period" to do something else totally brainless where he gets himself killed.
