Jogger With Gas Mask Alerts Bomb Squad
Alright People, next time you see a person running with a gas mask and some kind of bullet proof vest, don’t get alarmed, it’s just a guy training!
And I am not kidding.
>San Jose police said the suspicious-looking jogger seen fidgeting with a package at a drop-off box was only working out in hard-core, albeit odd-looking, exercise gear. “The guy said he was wearing a cardio mask,” said Sgt. Jason Dwyer. “It was his cardio day, and he was trying to lose weight.” That’s not what a post office customer thought when the man in the weird mask and vest was stuffing a package in a blue mail box about 12:30 p.m. The customer called police, and in a flash, the post office was on lockdown until 4:30 p.m., with 150 employees and customers tucked away in the back.
Seriously? Did this guy NOT think people would freak out or be alarmed?
As you can read in thecomments at Gizmodo, wearing a gas mask helps “to stimulate training at high elevation and the “armor” is nothing more than a weight vest.”
“Nothing more”? LOL
How can anyone assume that this guy was training? Not everybody in the US knows about MMA gas mask training!!
