And people still wonder if the police state is coming

It's here. It's in full effect. We are under martial law but it doesn't look like it does in the movies so it's not recognized as such, but when a lock-down can be imposed for no real reason and people go along with it, martial law is in effect.

Only up north

down here in the south we don't take too kindly to drones round here, nor some overzealous law man tellin us we aren't responsible enough to handle our own.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

These over reactions will

These over reactions will continue and the numbers will likely escalate.

To a government official, the potential fallout from being notified of a possible threat, not reacting and the threat turning out to be real, is loss of job. The hounding media will see to that. Alternatively, the potential fallout from being notified of a possible threat, over reacting, and the threat turning out to be a false alarm, is nothing more than criticism on sites like DP.

My theory is that this phenomenon results from the world getting smaller due to the proliferation of information and the cable news channels having to fill time 24/7. They land and focus on violent events and stay there until something else more important captures their attention. Viewers just follow along, working themselves up until they're fearful of their own shadows.

This is one reason why it's important to keep the boob tube turned off as much as possible if you want to stay sane. Most people don't, of course, which is why the world is increasingly insane.

Yet another shelter-in-place
This time for a man with a case
The cops are insane
Society's bane
We must stop this abuse post-haste

The more "false alarm" incidents like this, the better. It's effect will then wear off, and the people will give less credence to the fear mongering of our wise officials... Like the color codes terrorist threat levels... In time, who paid any attention to them anyway? This kind of stuff only increases skepticism, and raises awareness about the nature of our current government and culture...

Crybabies call for unneeded backup so everybody can get a suck off the government teat.

Well, let's see now...actually brings to mind Barney Fife or the Keystone Cops!

I got a call...

I got an automated call from the Sioux Falls school district saying the person did not have a firearm. I'm glad the school and police were able to quickly coordinate efforts; but they did freak out because a person had briefcase in the "area" near a school...

South Dakota?

Come on SD, this isn't like you. WTF?
