FTFA:  he was going to a pool in New Jersey, to use his timer for "kayak polo."

Now that explanation will  freeze the brain long enough to blow shiat up.

Police said he is in the country on a student visa.

Might be time to revoke a visa.

Arrest him!

Everybody knows, you use a sundial and a metronome for kayak polo.

/so I heard. When I was with a barbershop quartet, in Skokie, IL....

The most offensive part of the article was this:
"Runners at the 9K race in Central Park had to put all their belongings in clear plastic bags. Trash bins were removed from the route, and there were fewer porta-potties."

Not that I am shocked. I was saying on Monday "wait and see how many freedoms we lose and how many asinine precautions we'll now have to follow for "safety" after this."

I'd think everyone would realize that by now, but there are people who really don't see how bad it is getting. From the whole scene in Watertown, MA on Friday to having to use clear plastic bags at a farking marathon?  None of this is acceptable.

2013-04-22 01:07:16 PM
"At about 10 a.m., cops cited a New Jersey woman for leaving an unattended bag under an empty stroller while she went to the bathroom, a source said. "


cited her for what exactly?  peeing?

The Nazis didn't have anything close to the police state we do in the "land of the free and the home of the brave." Even before "9/11" the USA was cop-heavy.

And when the Gestapo etc. did get busy they concentrated on Jews, leaving ordinary Germans pretty much alone.

So, do y'all feel safe yet? Well, do ya, punks?

TFA: Police are at the ready during the 9/11 Memorial 5K yesterday, one of several races that required heightened security in New York City.

I don't think that word means what you think it means, article writer person.

If being a dumbass got you kicked out of the country, there's be about 4 people still living here. :P

After reading the story, language barrier and unfamiliarity with U.S. culture probably contributed a lot to this fiasco.

Now y'all leave me alone, I'm going to get busy making some clear underwear. (I'm not sitting in a taxi or restaurant bare-assed. I know some of you Farks are one-wipe-and-dash types.)

I didn't say they were, but it's asinnine and just further erosions of freedoms. Soon, clear bags will be expected and required.  Pat downs. All of that crap.

It's been verified by CNN.

So there was no bomb, no shots fired? Still, it's the New York Post. I'm surprised they didn't report multiple deaths anyway.

you're making it sound like it is a huge violation of civil rights. Event organizers asked participants not to bring bags and provided clear ones to help protect the safety of participants if they did. I'm not terribly worried about this.

No, not really.

The brownshirts used to march up and down the streets with a Nazi flag, and if you didn't stop and give a stiff-armed salute, they would beat the shiat out of you right where you stood.

The only defense an average German walking down the street had to not do this and avoid a beatdown was to duck into a doorway or otherwise get out of sight quickly.  The brownshirts would also stop by businesses, no matter who owned them, and ask if Jews were there.  If there were, they usually took you away to the camps as well.

well if you are okay with everyone having clear bags for this.  what about only clear bags all the time? no shopping bags, no purses, no brief cases, no gym bags...

thats okay right?

Since the man had no ID, cops went to his house to verify his address. Police said he is in the country on a student visa.

Time for him to return to his country.  Right now.

Refused to stop peddling when asked to by race organizers.  check.   "homemade timer" concealed in backpack.  check.  tried to use his cellphone while being questioned by the police.  check.  student visa.  check.   biking to a pool in NJ from Central Park NY(??!!).  check.

dry run or asshat looking for attention, you be the judge.

While I'd agree that's were hitting that slippery slope, there also aren't a whole lot of whispers about neighbors just disappearing, etc, that were the social tells of the gestapo's activity during the initial rounds of jew roundups..

This.

I don't know why we even allow student visas in the first place.

They either go home and take their knowledge with them or they stay in the US and make the labor market more competitive.

no. Of course, the crucial detail you're missing is that this was a regulation that the private group organizing the race put on runners participating in an event at a specified time and engaged in a specific activity. Not walking to work.

I can't talk on my cellphone during a movie. I find this restriction agreeable because it isn't everywhere I go no matter what I am doing.

Knowledge is an infinitely renewable resource.  They came her and paid for it, but we still have it.  They could have gone to school in England, Germany, Australia, or Italy - but we got their money and someone else didn't.

When you jump
At the sight of your neighbour
Arm yourselves against them instead
Stiffened up like a porcupine, Oh yeah
Welcome to Panicland

Doncha know it's a trap
Feel it snap
Then you crack
P-P-P-Panicland

5PM, see the lemmings flee
Past their gated non-communities
Mortgaged lives
To pay for the privilege, Oh yeah
To lock themselves safely in jail

I say it's a trap
Feel it snap
Then you crack
P-P-P-Panicland

Crime
Everywhere
Evil's all I see or read or hear

Duck and cover
Under the bed
Protect home and family
From THEM

Call the Army
Call the Guard
Someone's kid somewhere
Might be on drugs

We won't stop
Til we got
A SWAT team
In every garage
Ahhhhh --- P-P-P-Panicland

Wet brown hordes
Flood the magic kingdom
Lock 'em up, throw away the key
You can't fly if your name is Mohammed
Or Ali
Kuz we're terrorized
By terror on TV

It's just one more trap
Feel it snap
Then you crack
P-P-P-Panicland

Yeah
That's right
Up a tree
P-P-P-Panicland
