Creating real-life Mario blocks is cool and fun.
Getting arrested and facing criminal charges for it is not.
Five teenage girls in a small nothing town were arrested for designing Mario Bros. blocks and putting them around town. In a town with nothing to do, they found some fun. Now the city is trying to press criminal charges, despite admitting they know the girls did nothing to harm anyone or to try to scare anyone.
McCoy said even though no harm was intended by the girls, they could face criminal charges for their actions.
“The potential is always present when dealing with a suspicious package that it could be deadly,” McCoy said. “In today’s day and age, you just cannot do this kind of stuff.”
What a sad, sad state of affairs.
That makes me die a little bit inside..
I remember 3 years ago, the Stanley Cup time.
There were kids playing street hockey, and the neighbours called the police because its illegal and unsafe on public roads.
The police came and closed the street, and watched the kids play.
Thats how things are supposed to work, damn it. The world is so screwed up.
This seems to be the right URL for the article:
Mario followers are actually communists
Did you link to the right article for the “criminal charges” link?
What are the kids being charged with?!
