A shoulder-fired missile from Iraq was turned over to police in Brooklyn Monday morning.

A concerned passer-by saw some children playing with the launcher – which did not contain a missile – and took it to the 62nd Precinct station house in Gravesend. The NYPD Bomb Squad was called, and determined the launcher was inoperable and did not present a danger, because once it is used, it cannot be reloaded and used again.

Police say an American soldier brought the weapon back from the war in Iraq and gave it to a friend, who ended up throwing it away. The children found it in the trash, police say.

Y'know all the stuff I keep saying about the east coast having this weird-ass, whacked-out energy?

Yeah, this is the kinda stuff I'm talking about.
