  1. Wow! Those are police officers? How come they are dressed like bank robbers or terrorists with masks? If I saw them, I’d mistake them for a gang of thieves holding people hostage.

    They might want to re-think their dress code. Just sayin’.

  2. It’s pathetic how CNN has to actually include a laundry list of incidents at the end of their article as an excuse to increase their fear-mongering agenda since this wasn’t that big of a deal. It’s so blatantly ridiculous. Never let a good crisis go to waste, eh CNN?
