Here’s a good one, from Brazil:
Masked man who took 37 hostages on a bus in Rio de Janeiro is shot dead by a police sniper after a three-hour standoff — and cops then discover it was a toy gun.
Now quit that sniggering, you lot.
From this tragedy, it is clear that the only answer is to ban toy guns.
En passant, the word “sniggering” above was flagged by SpellCheck when I typed it in. (No prizes for guessing why.)
