Some NJ public schools were placed on lockdown when a person claimed to have spotted a ninja carrying a sword... This of course led to certain points of discussion:
- Should this have been taken seriously to begin with? One does not just spot ninjas!
- Would they have done the same thing if a pirate had been sighted?
- If not, isn't that discrimination?
- Don't ninjas have better things to do than terrorize elementary schoolers?
Turned out it was a camp counseler of sorts, a themed day at the camp prompted him to don a martial arts outfit with plastic sword.
