Gun-shaped iPhone case is too dangerous: Police warns
Pictures of an iPhone “casing” which was rather built to appear like a real gun have been in circulation over the week. But before considering buying these things, you better think of your safety first, US police warns.
The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office in Tom’s River, New Jersey, warned that brutal consequences might follow when somebody happily decides to fetch his gun-shaped iPhone in public, and that the casing should be avoided by all means. There was no mention in regards to whether the accessory was legal or not.
“Please folks – this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea. A police officers job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation. What do you think?” — Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
The New York Police Department also chipped in a few kind words of advice.
The pistol-shaped iPhones case had been on sale at Amazon costing $4.99 apiece but it appears that Emily, the company behind the product, has pulled down the sales page following hundreds of backlash reviews they’ve received over the week.
