He removed the orange tips, one was an AR15 replica the other a BB gun in a tactical holster. Multiple 911 calls and his arrest and booking for Disorderly Conduct and his medical screening was what happened. Apparently his two friends didn't get arrested.

Penal Code Chapter 42.01 Disorderly Conduct: "(a) (2) makes an offensive gesture or display in a public place, and the gesture or display tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace."

Good Night Nurse! I am beginning to think millennials are all severely brain damaged. This was just nothing short of a stupid move.

I to like blamin’ millennials for most anything also but only when the age fits. I don’t think 18yo is a millennial.

According to this link they fit the category.

Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called "Millennials," with the primary difference between the two being technology.

Maybe by urban dictionary but I’d trust Pew Research

So are you just looking to play internet combat? The vast majority of links show Millennials as gen Y and Gen Z. But meanwhile... back on topic. :tiphat:

I like to blame baby boomers and generation y for most anything, but only when the age fits.

Well it does in this case. Using the word "millennial" does apply to Y and Z. Like it or not.

https://whatis.techtarget.com/definitio ... generation
A Time magazine article placed the Millennials at 1980-2000.
Overall, the earliest proposed birthdate for Millennials is 1976 and the latest 2004.

I think with people having children later the colloquial definition of "generation" and age cohorts is getting wider. The "baby boomers" were post WWII (all the men coming back from the war) 1945-1965. I am the next cohort 1966 and my dad doesn't really fit "boomer" 1940 (WWII/end of the depression era). His older brother (RIP) tail end of depression era 1935. All are loose categorizations to try to group age cohorts with similar broad life experiences.
4/13/1996 Completed CHL Class, 4/16/1996 Fingerprints, Affidavits, and Application Mailed, 10/4/1996 Received CHL, renewed 1998, 2002, 2006, 2011, 2016...). "ATF... Uhhh...heh...heh....Alcohol, tobacco, and GUNS!! Cool!!!!"

:iagree:

And whether one chooses to call them millennial's or post millennial's, they are all part of the last two generations of mindless morons.
