News flash - not all Marines are intelligent. Just because he was in the Marines doesn't automatically give him "good judgement." It's obvious that
logical reasoning was not his strong suit - you call in a guy in a Wal-Mart with a toy gun rather than try to examine the gun closer to see if it's a
toy or not? Seriously...
If it was me:
1. Get a closer view
2. If the guy isn't acting crazy simply walk up and ask him to hold the toy, or say "that's cool, where'd you get it?"
Stories like these serve three purposes:
1. Causes average citizens to be more fearful (bad guy with gun) of innocuous living (shopping) ... increasing the chance another inexcusable
2. Causes the average citizens to be fearful of cops
3. Causes many, like us, to become increasingly irritated
All of these are very important in the direction the USA is taking.
