Are they sure he wasn't just happy to see them?

He had it on vibrate.

I love that I went to college before all this nonsense was a reality.

I have to feel sorry for the guy. Just minding his own business and then sirens going off and then police are patting him down.

ZOMG everyone curl up in the corner and quiver and cry!

Seriously what the farking fark is wrong with everyone?

I lived in Kennesaw for nearly 10 years over 10 years ago, including taking summer courses at KSU, and it doesn't surprise me this didn't happen earlier as there is an unenforced rule to own a gun if you own a home.  The threat is the same as it was years ago...I'll let others comment on why today is different.

Was he suspicious because he had a penis or was he also black?

I pre-date the era of pointless lockdowns and fake hate crimes, and I'm pretty happy about that. My kids, OTOH, have all of this nonsense to look forward to. I'm pretty sure that their college experience will be vastly different from mine.

Considering the derptastic gun law they just passed down there, we should probably get used to these.

Find the person who made the call and beat them senseless (which wouldn't take much). Repeat as necessary.

Old enough to know better: Considering the derptastic gun law they just passed down there, we should probably get used to these.


Kennesaw is *the* most gun friendly place in the country. And Georgia is one of the most gun-friendly states. The new "guns everywhere" law does very little to change everyday life there. It's people in Kennesaw freaking out over guns that is the story. And it is likely that whoever called the police did it in protest or in fear of the new law.

Jumpy as shiat much?  Hell, I stopped at buddy's place to see how he was yesterday... he's a good 10-15 years older and has a scanner in his garage. On come a bunch of chatter about a 6'5" black male, heavily armed, walking up the middle of the road.. and by road, I mean literally 1 and a half blocks from us!  Now I would assume THAT would make the damned news - nupe, not around here!!!!! Not a #$%^& word about it.

/of course it may have been a really nice gun - would not put it past police in this area to steal it and not say a word. Or, just never show up like the chickenshiats did when 2 idiots broke into my house.

Jument: Find the person who made the call and beat them senseless (which wouldn't take much). Repeat as necessary.


Do need to start taking these asshats in for questioning... why did you call? what made you think a cell phone was a weapon? have you never seen a damned umbrella on a rainy day before? is this the first black man you have ever seen, you racist a-hole?

My guess is he was wearing a turban. I like the article's style of leaving any significant details to readers' imaginations.

We've went from a person with a airsoft gun causing this, to a broom, to a hose, to a cell phone. What's next, loose change jingling in your pocket is enough for a bomb scare?

Maybe if people educated themselves on the basics of what a firearm (action movies don't count) we wouldn't wet our pants whenever we see a stick shaped like a pistol.

I taught courses to cops there (KSU) two years running - good times

I live a couple of miles from the campus.  I think it is the 2nd largest college in the state (or getting there) just behind UGA.

It is one of the ugliest campuses out there.  It has more yellow brick than Oz.

Was that a stick of dynamite in  his pants?
 
2014-04-25 09:04:08 PM
He was probably wearing a hat, a coat and sporting a beard; the smug bastard.
 
2014-04-25 09:08:33 PM
The threat to the community is the asshole that called the cops in the first place.

Picture of the man and his cel phone. That's some scary shiat.

In the old days we just had the town crazy person, talked to coke machines and mannequins, and nobody would have thought a thing about him pulling around a canon on a rope. Now everybody does the "FREAK OUT" when you cut a box open with a pocket knife!

Having looked up the school and the surrounding area, my money's on Caucasian. Because they didn't shoot him.

All these precautions and crap yet no one has been able to stop a shooter.

Good work

I was a student at this university.

One day in 2009 the school just SHUTS DOWN. No one's allowed to go in or out of any building and there's a cop everywhere you turn. There is a KILLER on the loose, I was told! He shot a cop! There's campus cops in every direction I looked, we're confused and scared, and police won't say anything. I was forced to be in this building for 2 hours before the police would let people out.

Ah, when the news came out so I knew what happened.

"Police told 11Alive News that the prisoner escaped from a vehicle while being transported by officers from downstate Coffee County. They said they had stopped at a nearby Waffle House when the prisoner escaped from the car. "

The guy was in prison for larceny.

I should've clarified that there was no gun, no one was hurt, and they found the dude in the woods the next day.

Jesus, it's bad enough when it's someone who forgot to take his gun in after going to the range... This "freak out over everything" shiat is getting ridiculous.

Had he been sitting at the table next to the cops in the Waffle House?

When crazy people just took the junk, they were mostly harmless, except in a overarching societal breakdown way. Now that they're all tweaking instead, it's a bit more of a problem.

There are more mediocre people than smart people.  No surprise there.
