Long story short, a bunch of kids (or young adults if you prefer) dressed up as zombies and organized a mobile dance party in Minneapolis. The cops
arrested them for acting strange, and then justified their actions by saying that they suspected the zombies might be terrorists.
The kids had backpacks wired to play music, something of a necessity for a mobile dance party. The cops showed up, saw backpacks+wires, and equated
that to TERRORISM!
I guess the only thing we have to fear is fear itself..and zombies.
Six friends spruced up in fake blood and tattered clothing were arrested in downtown Minneapolis on suspicion of toting "simulated weapons of mass
Police said the group were allegedly carrying bags with wires sticking out, making it look like a bomb, while meandering and dancing to music as part
of a "zombie dance party" Saturday night.
"They were arrested for behavior that was suspicious and disturbing," said Lt. Gregory Reinhardt, a police spokesman. Police also said the group was
uncooperative and intimidated people with their "ghoulish" makeup.
So, don't dress strangely, don't act out, don't ever have wires protruding from anything, stay in line, don't be different, and for the love of
God, do what we tell you!
I may be overreacting, but I think this entire country has gone insane. I mean, what's more insane than a bunch of kids with nothing better to do
than dress up as zombies and shamble around the city to a beat? Uhmm..how about the cops arresting them for it and charging them with terrorism?
Depending on what happens with this, these kids could be looking at decades in prison...
Enough is enough when we say it's enough.
