Things in Chicago and Washington D.C. could be worse I guess. This guy had just a single cartridge (they say bullet exposing their ignorance but from the context it’s a cartridge):
Bandar Seri Begawan – A 27-year-old Indonesian man was sentenced to five years imprisonment and three strokes of whipping by the Bandar Magistrate’s Court yesterday after he pleaded guilty to possession of an unlicensed bullet.
The defendant, Andriyadi was convicted of possessing a three-cm by one-cm bullet without a: licence issued by the licensing officer. It is an offence punishable under rule 17(l) of the Arms and Explosives Rule of the Arms and Explosives Act, Chapter 58.
He got caught when he tried to get on an airplane:
The defendant then took his wallet out and placed it in the X-ray machine.
As the wallet was screened, one of the airport security officers noticed something that looked like a bullet inside the defendant’s wallet.
The defendant was asked to take out the contents of his wallet which he did witnessed by the airport security officers.
Asked by the airport security officers about the bullet, the defendant admitted that the bullet belonged to him. The bullet was sent to the Royal Brunei Armed Forces where upon examination, the bullet was found to be a live bullet which had not been used before.
IMHO the wrong person is getting the whipping and the prison sentence.
