Don't Scream Too Loudly for Ice Cream


Don't Immanentize the Eschaton

Remember, it is okay to scream for ice cream, just don't argue with the ice cream man. Of course my favorite line from the story is at the bottom regarding the comments of the police sgt.

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Oklahoma ice cream man opened fire on a customer after a summer ice cream sale turned sour, police said on Tuesday.

Police in Enid, about 75 miles north of Oklahoma City, said they arrested Markus Miller, 29, an ice cream truck driver for Summer Song, on Sunday on two misdemeanor charges as well as a felony charge of pointing a firearm.

If convicted, Miller could receive up to 10 years in jail on the felony charge.

According to police, an 18-year-old woman approached Miller's ice cream truck and the conversation degenerated into a heated argument.

Miller is suspected of taking out a pistol and firing two shots at the feet of the woman. She was struck on the collarbone-area by either a bullet fragment or debris from the shots, police said.

Miller was arrested in his ice cream truck a short distance from the incident and police recovered a hand gun from the vehicle, they said. "It is not a normal or legal thing, anywhere in the country to carry a handgun without a permit while selling ice cream," said Sgt. Eric Holtzclaw, a spokesman with the Enid Police Department. <!-- article text ends -->
...But it is a normal thing to carry an unliscensed gun while selling drugs out of an ice cream truck. I get the feeling that most 18 year-olds who approach an ice cream truck aren't there looking for a Fudgesicle.
