Would You Consider This A Prank?

Imagine going to a Subway's for a sandwich or two.  And a couple of teenagers enter with hands in their pockets ordering everybody to the floor.  Would you not believe that this is a robbery and the robbers have handguns in their pockets?  That is what happened in a Wichita Subway.
Wichita police are investigating an aggravated attempted robbery at a northeast Wichita restaurant that may have been a prank.

It happened at the Subway restaurant, 3200 N. Rock, around 11 a.m. Monday. Police said two teenagers, 15 and 16-year-old boys, walked into the building with their hands in their pockets, ordering everyone on the floor.

One of the suspects started counting people on the floor, while two other teenagers ran out of the restaurant, police said. The third teenager ran away a short time later. No one was hurt.

Authorities identified one of the suspects as a Heights High School student. Officers contacted the student and questioned him. The boy was not arrested and released to his parents.

Investigators said it appears the teenagers were not trying to commit a robbery, but instead play a prank or a game.

"We do not want to have anybody else think this is in any way, shape or form acceptable,” said Lt. Doug Nolte, Wichita police.

Nolte said the suspects could have been confronted, creating a harmful environment.

The case will be turned over the District Attorney’s office for review.

A Prank?  These 2 idiots are very lucky that nobody was carrying a concealed gun.  There are a few states that permit it.  Kansas is one of them.

Here is an idea.  How about these idiot get a prank done back to them.  A trial with real charges, a verdict of guilty and 5 years in prison for armed robbery.  (Or attempted armed robbery.)  That would be a really funny prank on them!
