maybe beans, a casserole, macaroni, stewed beef, a pot roast, or any other FOOD.
Suppose for a second that this was a dry run to test police response time.
then surly the "victim" of this harassment would have known ahead of time and would not have been questioned.
Nevertheless, who transports cooked rice in the pressure cooker?
anyone that wants to.
it's not a crime YET, tho with people like you pushing for it, i'm sure they will try to push through anti-pressure
legislation that requires background checks and a special licence in order to own and operate a "pressure cooker". a better question
would be "who is so scared and insecure that they would call in, in panic that they have seen someone with an obvious, "dangerous" object know as a
"pressure cooker". even worse. "what MORON
figured they had to surround an apartment complex and harass someone, because someone called in a
suspicious cooking container
To me, that is synonymous with baking a pie and transporting it in the oven. Why not move the cooked food into a less bulky, inconspicuous,
seal-able container like Tupperware? If for no other reason than to avoid the potential for the FBI to surround and question you.
NO this would be like someone "baking a pie and transporting it in it's pie pan". transporting the pie in the oven would be like transporting the
rice dish in the pot, ON THE STOVE.
why should they have to transport the rice dish in a Tupperware container? or would you propose that carrying
ANY FOOD in ANY COOKING CONTAINER to be at least "suspicious activity", or even a CRIME, requiring the FBI to "surround you and question you"?
here is a question. WHY was the FBI involved at all? did this suspicious cooking wear travel across state lines? or is carrying food now a federal
crime? i would have thought this would be a case for LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT, or is the FBI now in charge of any "potential" dangerous items
Anyhow, someone saw something suspicious and called the authorities. Bravo for them.
there was NOTHING SUSPICIOUS in the first place. someone with obvious PARANOIA saw something that scared them and called the authorities. why they did
not take this caller in for the medical attention they obviously are in need of is a good question. either their meds are not powerful enough or they
NEED to be put on meds before they do something crazy like shooting up a place because they saw "terrorists" going in.
and THIS type of thinking is why people around the world now refer to the US as the "United States of Paranoia". people need to get a grip on
reality and stop seeing a terrorist around every corner.
