UPDATE......Better Safe than Sorry ...or......

Here is a clip of the police searching the suspect:









.......WAAAAY over-reaction?

Police responded in force today to a report of a man with a rifle at a mall, evacuating shoppers and calling in a SWAT team as worried workers locked themselves into stores. But it turned out that the man was only carrying an umbrella.

Burlington Police Officer Jim Tigges said that at about 9:55 a.m. Burlington police received a call from mall security reporting that two employees had seen a man with a backpack and a short rifle walk into the building and go into the bathroom.


I don't know on this one....  from a distance I can see what people would think, and knowing the heightened sense of fear....  who knows???
