Losing Their Shit; LAX Ed.

So the cops there stopped some guy who was dressed like Zorro and who was carrying a plastic sword.

Next thing they knew, everybody had lost their minds.
A false report of gunshots that sent panicked travelers fleeing from Los Angeles International Airport came right after officers with weapons drawn detained a masked man dressed in black and possibly carrying a sword, officials said.

The sword was plastic, but soon after, hundreds of passengers raced onto streets or the tarmac, causing major flight delays that the airport was still recovering from Monday. Video shows at least six officers confronting the man, who was dressed as the fictional crime fighter Zorro, outside Terminal 7 around 8:40 p.m. Sunday

This is even more ridiculous than the TSA defending us from the awful menace of a 9 year old boy with a pacemaker. Now they're protecting us from imaginary people. Whoa!
