Thousands of commuters from the Chicago west suburbs were delayed 2 hours this morning when the police stopped all the trains so they could search for a man who had been behaving suspiciously.
It turned out the man was a secret service agent who told the ticket agent he was carrying a gun and asked if the Metra system had metal detectors.
The security industrial complex in the USA has grown fat and happy based on a campaign of scaremongering for the past 7 years. The objective being to make people scared so they surrender their hard won liberty. This dude has been at ground zero for all of that.
And yet it didn't occur to him that telling a ticket agent he had a gun might cause some consternation?
What a guy! Our nation is safe with people like him packing heat!
