From today's Red&Black:
Jeremiah Ransom, a sophomore from Macon, was leaving a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event when he was detained.I understand ATF agents are no more than UGA police officers with better pensions, but did they actually have to get the kid into "investigative detention" to figure out he had violated no laws? And what constitutes a "suspicious individual" on a college campus? Hell, have you seen some of the professors lately? They have facial hair that that makes the Unabomber look like Ned Flanders.
After being held in investigative detention, he was found to have violated no criminal laws and was not arrested.
“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.
This bogus beatdown has serious implications. Chiefly, how do we expect to protect ourselves as a society from encroachment by pirates if we're going to make it so miserable to be a ninja?
There was no information about who won the pirate vs. ninja battle.
