Photographer Mistaken for Gunman

Sheridan College in Ontario was locked down last Friday because it was suspected a gunman was on the premises. Thankfully, it was a false alarm, but how do you mistake a gunman? Apparently, all it took was a lone photographer, some camouflage cargo pants and his free-standing tripod.

The emergency services were alerted by a professor and his eight students, who all reported they had seen a suspicious man carrying a "long, tubular object." Following a campus lockdown and a thorough two-hour search, nothing was found. Information incoming across the weekend has indicated a photographer with a tripod was the reason for the disturbance, though he has yet to be located and spanked for all the fuss he caused. Let this be a lesson to you camouflage-cargo pants-wearing weirdos; don't wear camouflage cargo pants. You're not in the army, you suck. Talking of things that suck, according to a satirical joke we are about to make, the NRA was said to be very disappointed about there being one less gun on the streets. We don't doubt it.

We live in irrational state induced fear, and fear breeds panic. The real enemy are the fear mongers - the governments and the corporate Britney press.

In North America we have a 1 in 5 chance of dieing in a car accident. 1 in 2 people who die, die of heart disease, yet no one is afraid to drive in a car to goto McDonalds.

They recently evacuated and oil rig in the North sea because some 23 year old girl got scared of a suspicious device. Instead of some normal person looking at it, and sending her to the doctor for some sedatives, they evacuated the freaking rig at a cost of millions of dollars.

Camouflage pants and cameras are not the problem, idiots, lackeys, and fear mongers are the problem.
