Police Response To Youtube Video About Unimpressive Response Impressive

Most impressive.


An Arizona man on trial for sending his 16-year-old nephew into a busy intersection last summer with a fake grenade launcher has been found guilty on endangerment and criminal hoax charges.

Sentencing is set for Aug. 8. Prosecutors say Michael David Turley could face anywhere from probation to more than five years in prison.
The 40-year-old filmmaker made a YouTube video of the July 28 mock terrorism scenario during rush-hour traffic in northwest Phoenix.

In the video, the teen was dressed in a sheet, had a scarf wrapped around his head, made erratic movements while in a crosswalk and pointed the fake weapon at vehicles, prompting motorists to call 911.

According to CNN Turley's attorney says he didn't really mean it.

The anonymous video is still up.
