Where are the PR people when you need them? I thought I heard a kid asking his friend on the Mall the other day if he had gotten the pretend hand grenade from the Public Service event that was about half military.
I made a comment to my friend about how such an object, if it existed, 1) was stupid from a public safety standpoint, and 2) was a glorification of dangerous weapons that kill people. Well, those grenades existed, if you can believe it. Where is the PR vetting for the order of 1000 squishy stress ball hand grenades?
Did we not learn anything from the effects of black toy water guns? how many people got shot when those were pointed at police or other people?
