ATF Rids University of Ninja Threat

ATF agents are always on alert for anything suspicious -- including ninjas.

"It was surreal," Ransom said. "I was jogging from Wesley to Snelling when I heard someone yell `freeze.'" Ransom said he thought a friend was playing a joke before he realized officers had guns drawn and pointed at him.

ATF agents had noticed Ransom's suspicious behavior and clothing and gave chase, apprehending him, Williamson said.

Ransom was wearing black sweatpants and an athletic T-shirt with one red bandanna covering the bottom half of his face and another covering the top of his head, Williamson said.

"Seeing someone with something across the face, from a federal standpoint -- that's not right," McLemore said, explaining why agents believed something to be amiss.

Previously: "The ability of that officer to gain compliance is restricted."

    I guess my response is clouded since I dont understand why you would wear a bandanna across your face... and I have spent many a halloween saying "please remove the mask so I can check your ID mr Clinton/Vader/Nixon/Spidey/etc..."

  4. He must not have been a very *good* ninja if the cops caught him so easily.

    If innocent ninjas cannot walk our campuses unmolested by the ATF, the terrorists have already won.

    The real question is, will there be a backlash to these sort of secret police tactics or will the population simply shrug and let it get worse and worse?

    I suspect the latter as long as there's new episodes of American Idol.
