Fun With Guns: 'It Was A Black Guy' Edition
February 14, 2014

So there’s a 34 year old guy in California named Brent Thomas Posada who got shot in the abdomen and was taken to the hospital. He told police that he was just standing on the sidewalk minding his own business when a black man approached him and held a gun to his head. He says he shoved the gun away and it went off in his abdomen.

He had described the black male suspect as 6 feet tall, 185 pounds, and in his late 20s. Posada said that the man had been “wearing a black hoodie-style sweatshirt, blue jeans and black, high-top shoes with silver stripes,” the The Record Search Light reported.

Well, the police looked around and there was no blood on the sidewalk and things didn’t seem quite right about this whole story.

That was when Posada finally admitted that he had “intentionally” shot himself in the stomach with a high-powered air rifle while he was inside his residence.

I don’t mean mean to stereotype but the first clue that Posada wasn’t all there is that he’s all here:

And if anybody in California has a sense of humor, they will send a black guy dressed exactly like the black guy he described to be his doctor.
