Man leaves gun, ammo, knife in unlocked car, and a thief comes along...

If this gun owner had been black, the cops would have arrested him for leaving the gun in the car. They'd have held him in suspicion for planning a robbery.

But this idiot wasn't black, soooooooo...

Burglar leaves message for Port St. Lucie gun owner
Police say man found gun, knife in bag with message: 'LOADED GUN Unlocked car = STUPID!!'

A burglar left a stern warning to a man who had his gun stolen from his car in Port St. Lucie.

Police said Michael Maisonneuve reported the burglary of his car Tuesday. He told officers he left his car unlocked and parked in his driveway overnight. When he returned to his car in the morning, Maisonneuve noticed someone had stolen his handgun and bullets that were left in the center console, as well as a knife that was sheathed in the driver's side-door pocket.

But whoever took the weapons seemed to be sending a message to Maisonneuve.

Police said that when Maisonneuve went back into the house, he found a plastic bag with his gun and knife inside. The bag had writing on it in black ink that said, "LOADED GUN Unlocked car = STUPID!!" On the reverse side, the message said, "LOTS OF Children in area."

That actually goes to a creepy level - unless the "thief" was actually his spouse or roommate...

Phallic Replacement Device around for kids to get their hands on.

Peculiar "theft," though: all that was actually stolen was the ammunition?
