Umbrella sets off lockdown in Upper Dublin High School
#1
My wife called me from work this morning to say that there were about six police cars and a SWAT team truck that just flew by her office. Turns out that it was all about an umbrella.

Upper Dublin High School entered lockdown this morning and police converged at the scene after a student's umbrella was mistaken for a rifle.

A science project involving an umbrella that looked like a unidentified rifle on a security camera caused the lock down, and prompted police to race to the scene.
Some parents pulled their children from classes.

The incident started shortly after 8:30a.m., said Deputy Chief Lee Benson. Four male students were seen on a security camera with what looked like a "long gun."

As a precaution, the school was lockdown as police and administrators identified the student and what class they were scheduled to be in at the time.

With weapons drawn, police entered the classroom and called out the name of the student with the umbrella.

"He (the student) quickly stood up," Benson said. The other three students were in the same class. They were still being questioned by detectives, he said. No charges were expected to be filed.

Officials had few details on the project, which they said was designed to "stimulate the human immune system protecting the body."

Not too bright, given the timing, I'd say. Apparently, it was supposed to look like a rifle, and he carried it "slung over his shoulder" like a rifle.

People are afraid of their own shadows right now.

Well played, MSM, well played.

We should ban evil black umbrellas. Hopefully it wasn't one of those collapsible tactical models, otherwise it might have lept out of his arms to try and shield the other students from rain on its own.

Absolutely, no one needs one of those unbreakable assault umbrellas. There is no rational reason for them.

Does that come with a replaceable polonium tip?
