The comments are even funnier. What have we become as a nation.
Do you not see what fear is driving us to do to each other ?
Tell me again that the terrorists haven't won.

Umbrella Causes 3-Hour Lockdown At East Carolina University CBS Charlotte
"A three-hour lockdown at East Carolina University was triggered when a man carrying an umbrella was mistaken for a gunman.
..
Heavily armed officers from at least four law enforcement agencies responded in force, sweeping campus buildings, searching buses and briefly surrounding a nearby house. A state Highway Patrol helicopter hovered overhead.
..
Calls to Greenville police seeking comment were not returned."

From the comments section :
"..arrested for carrying a concealed umbrella."
"This is why Cabelas and other sporting goods stores catering to hunters don’t carry umbrellas."

To be fair it was on 5th street, which in the parlance of this forum, is the ghetto. Those precious little drunkards are no match for the fleet-footed local color in G-Vegas.

Something similar happened at the Burlington Mall in the Boston area not too long ago.

The mall ended up surrounded by the Police and Swat! It also turned out to be an umbrella.

Reminds me of that incident a couple months ago in I think Detroit where a plane had a few people with brown skin color on board so they were called "suspicious" and a swat team with machine guns was called in to arrest them. The war on terror is the biggest lie ever.

It wasn't just any umbrella it was a bumbershoot! An evil black assault bumbershoot at that! Quick, call Eric Holder and have him (via BATFE) send two containerloads over the border to Mexico untraced!

As I always say, it's better to be safe than sorry.

And thats why the United States accounts for 43% of all military spending in the world.

We are scared of every little thing. Hell China, the next largest contributor to world wide military spending accounts for just 8%.

And don't forget, our allies are some of the largest contributors as well.

Its ridiculous. We invaded two countries for the deaths of 3000 people?

Terrorism is a police problem, not a military problem.
