Rocket Launcher Police Test. (aka the dumb things people do.)

This guy is starving for attention so he has his nephew dress up as a terrorist with an rpg and films him aiming the weapon at passing vehicles.

He claims he was 'testing' the response time of the Phoenix police department. I think he needs to find a new hobby, with all of the budget cuts I really don't think police have time for this nonsense.

Turley was arrested last week after allegedly having his nephew wear a sheet on his body and a towel on his head, then run around a Phoenix intersection with a fake rocket-propelled grenade launcher, in an attempt to "test" the Phoenix Police Department's response to a terrorist situation.

It turns out that the guy does actually make movies, albeit not incredibly successful ones. He wrote and directed his own movie starring John Voight, which sounded awesome until we found out that John Voight is not Jon Voight. According to Turley's/Giannantonio's description, it's a movie about a guy who gets stuck at a lot of red lights.

Turley faces charges of knowingly giving a false impression of a terrorist act, endangerment, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and misconduct involving a simulated explosive.

So anyway the guy got stuck with a bunch of fines and commuters had a story to tell around the dinner table. How often do you say 'you won't believe what I saw on the way home......'?

Well this time it was probably true.

If this was already posted then move on 2 the next story, orI guess you can post something telling me to search before I post. (which i did.)

That's just too ridiculous. I think they invented straight-jackets for people like that.

Everybody knows it is unfair to test government response times without telling them in advance!

I think what saved the kid dressed up as the terrorist was that he looked unbelievable. Hopping around and making it look obvious it is a stunt. Looks like the liberty Tax people or one of the new home arrow spinners that stand on the corner to attract attention. Glad the guy got arrested. The system is broken enough without idiots wasting the Police's time or court costs.
The guy in the white truck seems to not appreciate a RPG aimed at him.

Good video. From it I found the intersection of the commotion and the the house that they were in front of when the cop showed up.

Jeeez is this a government sponsored video? Trying to convince us that we need MORE police and tighter security measures?

This is just the sort of thing you want to show if you want to be living in a police state in the near future..nice one OP

I have been saying this for years fake rpg launchers need to be outlawed or at least a permit required and extensive background search. / sarcasm.......

this IDIOT should have been arrested and charged with terroristic threats, whether or not they were real, what if theyb caused someone to react and cause an accident, injuring or killing someone?
This isnt first amendment rights, this is RETARDS ON PARADE

I'm sorry, but while I like a goof joke as much as anyone, this guy is an idiot. There is a lot of paranoia in America right now about terrorists, and in doing something like this he is just inciting people to do violence to him.

I'm sorry, but this is just not funny.
