The Department of Absurdity apparently can’t wait to bring us this story.
Seems the Detroit brownshirts, having recently vanquished the politically-late-yet-unlamented Kwame Kilpatrick, needed a new target on which to practice their particular brand of Draconianism.
Enter the Pillow Fighters.
Police in Detroit have ruffled some feathers after they cracked down on an organized pillow fight at a downtown park.
The Detroit News reports that police at Campus Martius Park prevented the feathery fight Saturday by disarming pillow-toting participants.
What was that old canard? Something about not bringing a pillow to a gun fight…?
The bout was part of a worldwide event organized on social networking Web sites. Other bouts included one on Wall Street, where hundreds pounded each other in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
Michael Davis of Hamtramck, Mich., said police confiscated the 32-year-old man’s pillows but returned their cases. He said he was told that he needed a permit.
Participant Scott Harris added that as far as he knows it’s “not illegal to own a pillow.”
“When pillows are outlawed, only outlaws will have pillows.”
Detroit police spokesman James Tate said the issue wasn’t about the bout but the mess it would have created.
I call bullshit. Your politicians spew that much crap every day, and you morons do nothing. What’s their excuse?
I mean, pillows don’t kill people, people do.
