School locked down after 'ninja' sighted in woods

BARNEGAT, N.J.—It's the case of the nonexistent ninja. Public schools in Barnegat were locked down briefly after someone reported seeing a ninja running through the woods behind an elementary school.
Turns out the ninja was actually a camp counselor dressed in black karate garb and carrying a plastic sword.
Police tell the Asbury Park Press the man was late to a costume-themed day at a nearby middle school.
The lockdown began shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday and lasted until 9:30.
Information from: Asbury Park Press,

We have become so chickenshit as a society it isn't funny. It wasn't too long ago that anyone with a "swarthy" complexion was deemed a possible terrorist.

And thanks to the spate of school shootings in the late 1990's, any kid who's a little off-beat in how he acts or dresses is fair game for being treated like a potential threat.

What next? Ghosts? Little Grey Aliens with rectal probes? Blue Meanies?
