Cell Phone Case that Looks like a Gun: Good Idea or Bad Idea?

I’m going to say this is a bad idea.

Police are warning people via social media of a “faux gun cell phone case.”

On Facebook, the New Jersey State Police wrote:

“Officers do not have the luxury of time when making split-second decisions, while interacting with the public. We strongly recommend that you do not use this product both for your own safety and the safety of law enforcement officers.”

“This faux gun cell phone case has been making its rounds on the Internet. It’s a terrible idea, and it’s very dangerous. We strongly recommend that you do not use this product.
