Oh, thank goodness…

The Ninja threat at UGA has been contained.

ATF agents are always on alert for anything suspicious — including ninjas.

Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm agents, on campus Tuesday for Project Safe Neighborhoods training, detained a “suspicious individual” near the Georgia Center, University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said.

Jeremiah Ransom, a sophomore from Macon, was leaving a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event when he was detained.

“Seeing someone with something across the face, from a federal standpoint — that’s not right,” McLemore said, explaining why agents believed something to be amiss.

Make sure you face the telescreen, Winston.

::Update:: I feel compelled to point out that it’s fortunate that the ATF wasn’t on campus last week for ‘Al Qaeda vs. Hezbollah Day’ because that would have been a fucking MESS….

    The story made it big time on Wonkette, so I guess we can hope for more ridicule.

    But I saw it here first! Thanks.

    What bums me out the most, when reading the comments on the R&B site, is how polarized we are. Some people actually think the ATF did the right thing. Good thing he wasn’t wearing a “heavy jacket” that might conceal a bomb, or they might have pumped 7 bullets into his head without any warning. It’s been known to happen.
