Post Columbine, if you wore a black trench-coat into school you would be suspicious and often sent home. Is there anything inherently wrong in a trench-coat?
1) I wear the trench-coat and make subtle gestures to those around that I am shooting.
2) I wear the trench-coat and make OVERT gestures of gunning people down ( no actual guns involved)
3) I am ignorent of trench-coat fear and wear it to keep me dry in the rain
Those three scenarios have obviously different consequences. None of which is being arrested. Yet, the kid can still be at fault in the first two scenarios.
