It’s not the first time the word has come to mind when talking to reporters.
In a recent case, the word was used when a police officer in New York City referred to a man who was arrested on a charge of felony possession of a weapon after he was found with a weapon in his pocket.
The word was also used when talking about a man named Andrew, who was indicted on a weapon charge in New Jersey in 2014.
The state court dismissed his charges on the grounds that his defense attorney was mistaken.
Andrew’s attorney argued that the police officer’s description of the weapon was not sufficiently clear, and the words “methamphetamine, amphetamine, and crack cocaine” were used to describe the drug.
The judge dismissed the case, saying it was a “difficult case.”
