In the latest completely stupid culture of fear incident, a couple of Hash House Harriers were arrested for putting flour on the ground near an Ikea. The sad part, well one of the sad parts, is that the man arrested is a German citizen who joined the running group to meet friends. Another sad part is this quote from the city spokesperson:

Mayorga said, "We can't take any situation lightly. We didn't know who these people were. We didn't know what this substance was and in the best interest of the citizens of New Haven, we had to take it seriously."
I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure there is no chemical or biological agent that is effective by being thrown on the ground in pile outside. What would be good is for the city to have a process whereby an uninformed officer can make a call to someone who then says there is no need to call the Police, Fire, Health, state police and FBI for someone playing a harmless game.

A tavern owner in Atlanta has created his own Dalek-esque Security robot. I drive past there some mornings, but have never seen it out - then again that's not prime crime time.
