    FL - TV Reporter Arrested For Entering School Property W/ Gun

    No exscuse for this. He WAS warned. Idiot...he should be fired, IMO.
    You would think he'd have known the law....



    A television reporter investigating a story on school violence was arrested after carrying a loaded gun onto school property, authorities said.
    Jeffrey Weinsier of WPLG-TV, an ABC network, was taken into custody Tuesday at Miami Central High School after ignoring several warnings not to walk on school property, Miami-Dade schools police said.
    "Kindly go across the street now," an officer is shown telling Weinsier during the videotaped encounter.
    "I'm not," Weinsier replied. The officer then handcuffed him.
    Weinsier, 40, was charged with possession of a firearm on school grounds, trespassing on school property with a weapon and resisting officers without violence.
    The photographer working with Weinsier, Frank Debesa, said afterward: "Jeff did have a gun on him." more at link

    What was he trying to prove? The reporter is an idiot.

    Probably trying to prove he could get away with carrying a weapon either on school property or into the school.

    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    Why was he allowed to carry a weapon anywhere...you guys must get sick of us Aussies at times ...but...unless you are a cop here you are not allowed to carry a gun..you are a lucky here to have a gun in possession here legally.......we have our fair share of stabbings but gunshot wounds are geting fewer and fewer.

    He is such an idiot, what if it would have went off accidentally?

    dingo- In my state anybody can apply for carrying a concealed weapon. I think you can get it if you have never committed a felony. Scary huh? I have a few uncles that have one that shouldn't.

    Most of the crimes near our bigger cities are not registered guns. I have heard illegal guns are very easy to access here.

    Was he trying to do a story on security at public schools, and was testing how good their security was? That's the only thing I can think of

    ETA: Even so, he shouldn't have had it loaded!
