Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!
An apparent drug gang in Huntsville, Alabama decided they wanted to get in on the “Mannequin Challenge.” The Mannequin Challenge is where a bunch of people take a video of themselves in still poses while doing ordinary things they do in life.
The apparent drug gang posed as if they were in a shootout… most likely as if they were holding off a rival gang, or other thugs trying to rob them. Some of those in the video were felons, making it illegal for them to be in possession of firearms.
Here’s the video.
When the Madison County Sheriff’s Office saw the video, they sent some officers to investigate. Capt. Mike Salomonsky told reporters that a warrant to search the home was issued, also.
While searching the home, two handguns, a shotgun, a rifle and marijuana were found. The marijuana was packaged for sale.
According to Leo Affairs,
Officers arrested 23-year-old Terry Martez Brown and charged him with drug paraphernalia possession, loitering and promoting prison contraband.
Also arrested was 49-year-old Kenneth Fennell White, who’s charged with first-degree marijuana possession and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Of course, these gang banger thugs probably weren’t smart enough to check the penalties for the laws they were breaking, or maybe they did, and just didn’t care.
The sale of marijuana is not legal in Alabama, and probably won’t be for some time. Possession is not legal, either.
According to FindLaw, first-degree marijuana possession in Alabama is “possessing marijuana for something other than personal use or for personal use after a previous conviction of unlawful possession of marijuana. This is a Class C felony. This can get you between 1 and 10 years in prison and up to a $15,000 fine.”
A felon in possession of a firearm can get up to 10 years in prison.
We’re obviously not dealing with brain surgeons here, but damn, you’d think if you were an armed felon dealing drugs, you might figure out you need to keep a low profile.
This video was definitely not low profile.
Take it from a guy who escaped a gang when he was 19 (that being me), if you play stupid games, you WILL win stupid prizes.
These guys just won stupid prizes. And they deserve every bit of them.
