As Bruce asked, “Are the police taking stupid pills?”:
Two people who sprinkled flour in a parking lot to mark a trail for their offbeat running club inadvertently caused a bioterrorism scare and now face a felony charge.
The sprinkled powder forced hundreds to evacuate an IKEA furniture store Thursday.
The police charging them with a felony is evidence of a serious lack of brain cells but the mayoral spokeswoman probably could be outsmarted by police dog feces.
Mayoral spokeswoman Jessica Mayorga said the city plans to seek restitution from the Salchows, who are due in court Sept. 14.
“You see powder connected by arrows and chalk, you never know,” she said. “It could be a terrorist, it could be something more serious. We’re thankful it wasn’t, but there were a lot of resources that went into figuring that out.”
“…sprinkled powder forced hundreds to evacuate…”
Forced: Not done voluntarily but out of necessity.
Necessity: Something that is essential, especially a basic requirement.
Requirement: Something that is needed for a particular purpose.
Who, exactly, “forced” the evacuation? The sprinklers, or some nut job in local government?
Leftist-speak (the complete misuse of the language due to ignorance and/or malice) strikes again, leaving us shaking our heads in disbelief.
Better tackle the guys chalking the yardage lines in every local football field in the country, too. They COULD be terrorists, after all, and we can’t be too careful.
I’ve said it before: Shouldn’t we be looking for more level-headed, emotionally stable public servants? Do the level-headed, emotionally stable even apply for public service in the first place? One wonders.
