Unarmed and Dangerous

Headline: Armless man stopped for speeding
WELLINGTON, New Zealand - An armless man stopped for speeding was driving with one foot on the steering wheel and another on the pedals, a policeman testified in court.
You think the police officer instructed him to step out of the vehicle with his hands above his head? Hope not, cause then he would've ended up shooting an unarmed man once he didn't cooperate.

I don't know what everyone is up-in-arms about. There are people who play the piano, change diapers, and paint with their feet - why not be able to drive? Isn't it understandable that he's never actually held a driver's license?

After he was arrested, which would've been an awkward situation in itself considering cuffing, etc., I'm sure the vehicle had to be toe-d away. So, what's the difference? Was the toe-truck driver arrested too?

The charges are more than questionable: Likely to be dangerous. Who isn't likely to be dangerous? That's like a preemptive strike. That's just as bad as racial-profiling.

I hope this guy wins his court battle and walks away with the long arm of the law. Otherwise, he'll have one helluva time trying to hitch a ride.

This is when being "legless drunk" is particularly troublesome ...

Shooting an unarmed man? You are just too much! Brilliant.
