If he’s white the FBI will get right on it after a quick call to the New York Times and friends at the IRS. If he’s black the story’s O-VAR...

Too little firepower to make a difference.

Probably peace disturbance, if they have citizens willing to sign a complaint of such.

Charge him with cheating to win a Darwin Award.

Driving in Detoilet, MI with a machine gun altered to make noise is beyond dumb.

Some street thug could have shot him claiming he was in fear of his life. Imagine the “street creds” that would have given the thug.

Causing the local cops to drop their donuts before their coffee break was over?

“The armor-plated military-type vehicle featured a modified World War II .50-caliber machine gun.”

It sounds like exactly what one would need for a nice evening drive in Detroit

Disorderly conduct - the catch-all charge when they can’t come up with anything else.

I don’t know but I’d be willing to give him a job after a psych exam. He’s got at least some usable skills.

Just an aside to the CO2 comment. Coke has a huge enviro/save the planet/polar bears type thing going on. Not sure about pepsi but my questieon is why nobody has tried to shut them down for all the CO2 they use and release? (Rhetorically speaking of course.)

In 1975, in the Woodlands/Ft. Lauderdale, my cable crew dug one up . They painted it white and mounted in on one truck. Parked in our lot until the big wheels saw it.
That part of Laud. was used for bombing and straffing practice, War Games”.

My Mother lives in Shelby Twp., and I was surprised that it wasn’t her that was running around doing this. I’d watch out for my Mother, I swear that she was an arms dealer in a previous life, if not the current one. BTW, the Shelby Twp. police are a bunch of douchebags. My youngest Son could make them cry like little girls :) /s.
