Every time I hear news like a bridge shut down for hours because some homeless guy left his backpack, or an entire neighborhood on lockdown because some stupid middle schooler wrote shit on FB, I'm disgusted with this national paranoia and overreacting "first responders." Land of the free, home of the brave indeed.
I believe (without getting into conspiracy theories) the police response SOP on alleged mass shooting or explosives is never designed to minimize disruptions and mass panic, but rather amplify them and to condition the populace into a quasi martial law.
