First, this is NOT satire.
Second, you read that right. A “concerned citizen” actually called the police and reported a cosplay Stormtrooper as a gunman at a Star Wars Reads event at the Los Angeles Public Library.
According to KTLA News 5, “A Star Wars-themed event catering to children at the Los Angeles Public Library’s Silver Lake branch on Saturday drew a police response after someone reported a performer dressed as a Stormtrooper as an armed man, authorities said.
The incident unfolded around noon at the library, 2411 Glendale Blvd., a Los Angeles Police Department sergeant said.
Officers responded to a report of a person with a gun and were directed to a performer wearing the costume of the evil warriors from the Star Wars series. The performer carried a large prop gun as part of the costume.
After briefly detaining the Stormtrooper, officers determined the weapon was, in fact, a prop and posed no threat.”
There were reports on Twitter of LAPD initially swarming the building, scaring children and parents alike.
This hyper-vigilant report of a gunman at the mere sight of a cosplay prop is undoubtedly a response to the fear mongering and brainwashing the gun grabbers spread every day. It’s also a peek into the future with Red Flag Laws.
Star Wars Reads is a month long event that is held worldwide with many events at local libraries, bookstores and even schools. During these events, people will dress as characters from the films and read to children. The all ages events are meant to spur excitement and interest in reading, a worthy and wholesome goal.
