That's a good way to get yourself shot. Lucky for her, she will just be spending some time in lockup instead. I pray she learns her lesson before she gets killed or kills someone else. But I fear that will not happen.

"The weapon turned out to be a folding knife that is designed and made to look exactly like a handgun," said Sgt. Bennie Boles of the La Porte Police Department. "So therefore, if she displayed what appeared to be what the victim thought was a handgun, thinking they were in danger of being killed or in serious danger, all of those things put together actually make it aggravated assault with a deadly weapon."


I think the knife would be considered a deadly weapon also...I would think the charges would be the same regardless as to it looking like (a) a knife that looks like a knife...(b) a knife that looks like a gun....or (c) a gun that looks like a gun. All three are deadly weapons.

Interesting.

The truck the road-rager was driving in the video was a red four door chevy.

That's the same color and make of truck featured (in upside down photos?!) in this gofundme plea from six months ago by a woman of the same name from Baytown: https://www.gofundme.com/anything-will- ... atter-what. Someone left an uncomplimentary comment. No donations yet.

An interesting comment about her history is attached to that story linked in the OP as well.

It looks like this bozo didn't learn her lesson yet. viewtopic.php?f=108&t=89802

over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

I got an email notice Monday from a website selling the Knive that looks like a gun. I was going to post it with a sarcastic remark, but let the notion fade. Looks like some idiot bought one. :banghead:
