Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
It looks like I got pwn3d. The weapons in question have been identified as being completely legal. Thanks to Rusty for pointing this out, and...
Here's the scenario for you: An apartment near the Federal courthouse in Dallas, Texas was raided yesterday, which just happens
to be right before jury selection in the Holy Land Foundation terror-funding trial
is scheduled to begin. There is a rumour
that a second apartment has also been raided, with the exact
same inventory of weaponry as the first. The weaponry consisted largely of automatic and semi-automatic rifles, a 40mm ordnance launcher, and roughly 500 rounds of ammunition. (h/t Ace
The Dallas Police can't seem to figure it out
, so maybe we can help them out with a little line-up. Who do you, the reader
think is responsible for this imminent attack?
Oh, and if you answer (D)
, you will be immediately banished to Political Correctness Camp. Chime in down in the comments section
whenever you're ready![Ed.:—Alright, it would seem that the premise has been blown, so aside from this joke flopping, feel free to add to the festivities by printing out my picture from the "About" page and throwing eggs at it... Sorry, fair readers, for failing to follow up on the initial story before posting this!]Update:
Oooo, an Insty-link
! Hope y'all enjoy, even if the joke ended up being on me
Then again, that makes it that
much better... Right?
Sources say a maintenance man entered the apartment in the 300 block of North Akard to work on some plumbing. Once inside, authorities say, the man found the weapons. He took pictures of them with his cell phone and showed them to police.
Police are still taking inventory of all the weapons seized. Among those discovered were two AK-47 rifles, an Uzi 9 millimeter submachine gun, a TEC-9 submachine gun, a 40 millimeter ordnance launcher, a handheld ordnance launcher, and about 500 rounds of ammunition.
The tenet [sic.—tenant] left during the police search and hasn't been seen since.
As of 7 p.m., authorities had not yet arrested anyone, but were searching for the tenant of the apartment.
Authorities tell us the tenant travels to the Middle East frequently and just returned from there this morning.
That information and the amount of weapons found lead to the involvement of the North Texas Terrorism Task Force. However, authorities say there is no reason to suspect terrorism as a motive.
