    It’s a sad commentary on our times.
    I remember years ago when we would stand in traffic and wave a knife. People would drive by and smile or wave their fist or possibly take a shot at us as they went by.
    Nowadays some bleeding heart do-gooder will call the cops on you. A sad commentary.

    I’m guessing that no one has noticed that the man in this item was waiving the knife and not waving it.
    It seems that he was trying to surrender the knife all along and we wasn’t brandishing it as a weapon.
