White robber fools police for weeks with elaborate African-American 'Hollywood' mask

Heh, fooled me. Now I am waiting for the copy cat criminals to start wearing like Asian and Indian masks.


#3

he’s probably a Lounge poster


#4

Wow…ain’t technology great? We have the ability to temporarily turn a gay-looking caucasian dude into a brother. But maybe if the fool hadn’t blown all that money on the mask, he wouldn’t need to be robbing anyone.


#5

Jesus, Rhio. You pretty much demolished any hope he had for a defense.

Just look at how life-like the skin is once he’s put the mask on… it even moves realistically as he speaks, with apparently no prior affixation. I had no idea there were such convincing masks in existence today.


#7

That’s some straight-up Metal Gear shit.


#8

Not quite. He could try the old Robert Englund angle: The mask’s materials caused an allergic reaction that altered his behavior to a criminal bent. Chemically induced bouts of temporary insanity.


#9

Damn the quality of these masks makes me rethink my original position on the ludicrous nature of the Mission Impossible movies…

^_-;


#10

I am waiting for the white guy wearing a white mask.


#11

c’mon son. when was the last time you heard about an asian robbing someone…outside of chinatown.


#12

i knew it…i saw that post last night in the lounge, i knew some white guy was gonna blame us for shit somehow.


#13

LOL, the funny thing is you know the cops had mad brothas that fit the profile…lol. Those sfx masks look cool as shit. Im dressing up as a white guy to rob banks. That was his bad to rob banks as a black guy.

white guys never get caught robbing banks. a black guy trying to rob a bank and not getting caught is like asking water not to be wet.

Way to steal my idea, i was gonna rock a white mask throw on a cap with the blond wig on…lol. looking like Snow from ff13.


#14

that’s pretty damn funny!


#15

Maybe its like those people who live in the ghetto but have really nice cars/sneakers because they are trying to emulate rich, white society and this is the full circle as white people are now trying to emulate poor black society.


#16

If he had been a little smarter (ie. not staying so close to the robberies, not so many in a short time frame, traveling from one city to another) he probably wouldn’t have been caught at all. Kudos for creativity though.


#17

Just think in ten, twenty years when mask making techniques grow even further in terms of complexity and life-like material… it’s going to be freaking illegal to make masks. You could literally look like anyone.


#18

well it’s already illegal in a lot of places to wear masks in public.


#19

Wow. Completely at a loss for words other than wow :rofl:


#20

Same here, except I never saw the Mission Impossible movies; I was thinking more of Decoy Octopus from MGS.
