Terrorist attack? Or two cross-dressers made a wrong turn?

What do you think?

Amy J. Thoreson, a spokeswoman for the FBI, said in a statement that authorities “do not believe [the incident] is related to terrorism.”

Then I guess it’s just the wrong-turn scenario. Oops. Maybe the victims can sue for civil right violations of their sexual orientation.

UPDATE

Yes, looks like just two cross-dressers made a wrong turn. Because the cross-dressers were also petty criminals, they will try to justify the trigger happiness on that basis. But they could have been two completely innocent cross-dressers who got shot because they made a wrong turn.

  1. Yeah, in the split second it took to make a decision they probably “profiled” the man with the lipstick as potentially mentally unstable and dangerous.

  2. They had just robbed a third guy who stayed at a hotel with them the night before. What was the third guy wearing?

    • Probably just criminals who took a wrong turn and then panicked.

  3. “Law enforcement officials familiar with the case said the two men in the vehicle were dressed as women and that they had earlier robbed another man of the SUV from a motel on Route 1 in Howard County. ”

    There’s the basis for the lawsuit right there. The NSA was correct to shoot the intruders, but the crime of misgendering may have been committed by law enforcement spokesmen.

  4. Sounds like an out-take from “Some Like It Hot.”

  5. The CNN article now says that cocaine was found in the SUV the men had stolen. Maybe they were high at the time, though I had no idea cocaine could cause cross dressing.

    Does not sound like typical terrorists.

  7. I work near a big federal installation and they have a barrier, strong enough to stop a truck, which can be raised or lowered by hitting a button. So there’s no need to order people to stop and then shoot them if they disobey. Instead they have no choice to stop because otherwise they will run into the barrier and go nowhere. This seems like a better approach to me.

  8. When I first moved to San Diego I made wrong terms into navy bases a few times. They guards are well armed and look annoyed, but I didn’t think they’d shoot me.

  9. Were the cross-dressers of the type that enjoy Tyler Perry movies?

    I once jogged across the parking lot of an unmarked, non-descript DOD office building. There was a barely-visible, 8-inch “no trespassing” sign stuck low to the ground in the landscaping near the entrance to the parking lot. I ignored the sign and was quickly accosted by two uniformed guards that appeared out of nowhere. They begrudgingly let me go.

  11. NYT, 03/31/15 – Man in Fatal Encounter With N.S.A. Is Identified

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/01/us/ricky-hall-is-identified-as-man-in-fatal-encounter-with-nsa.html?ref=todayspaper

    The F.B.I. on Tuesday identified a man who was fatally shot by the police at the National Security Agency as Ricky Hall, 27, of Baltimore, who had a criminal record that included convictions for prostitution, theft and assault. A passenger in the vehicle that Mr. Hall was driving, Kevin Fleming, 20, also of Baltimore, remained hospitalized for gunshot wounds. Law enforcement officials said the men were picked up by a 60-year-old Baltimore man early Monday and driven to a motel in Elkridge, Md. They stole his Ford Escape and sped down a highway exit, apparently unintentionally, that is reserved for the N.S.A. Agency police shot the men as Mr. Hall drove toward a parked police car, the N.S.A. said.

  12. Building restricted exits from a highway is schizophrenic, isn’t it?

  13. Steve Sailer said that after World War G is World War T. I realized this is incorrect. World War T occured long ago and nobody even noticed. Most of the states, in 2005 and 2006, passed laws to let people change their sex/gender on their birth certificate, red states included.

    Considering that the number of people who have actually changed sex/gender remains sadly stuck at zero, you have a whole lot of suspension of belief going on, and not a whole lot of independent thought on either side of the aisle.
