Not only is the ongoing war between Pirates and Ninjas taking its toll, but now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is getting involved. Seems some poor guy attending a a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event found himself being hogtied by ATF agents for being “suspicious” looking:
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.
“Agents noticed someone wearing a bandanna across the face and acting in a somewhat suspicious manner, peeping around the corner,” said ATF special agent in charge Vanessa McLemore.
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.
You gotta check out the pic that goes along with the article. They didn’t just stop this poor guy for questioning, they had his ass down on the ground with a knee to the neck in case he tried to pull some elite ninja moves on them and slip away under the cover of shadows.
Whew! Good thing we’ve got the ATF to keep us safe from those pesky ninjas!
