Students Party Crashed for Mad Scientist Antics

December 4, 2008

UK (ChattahBox) – When a group of students decided to hold a Halloween party with a Mad Scientist theme, the worst they expected to be called were “Lab Geeks”. What they didn’t expect was to be labeled as terrorists.

The group of friends donned white lab coats, a few strange wigs, and performed a few simple High School chemistry experiments for friends. The party itself seemed to go well enough, but a few hours after the festivities had started to wind down, police conducting a routine check saw the results of the experiments, plastic skeletons, and beakers, and mistook the nights innocent activities as terrorist training equipment.

The owner of the building, Richard Watson, was arrested, searched, and several blocks were evacuated. When asked about what happened, Watson explained, ‘I was handcuffed and put in the back of the police van for over an hour while the bomb squad and drugs team came down. There was a ridiculous amount of police there. Every time I looked out of the van I could see a new group of them swarming around.’

There can be no doubt that this is an embarrassing mistake for the London Police Department, but one that is increasing all over the world. With more and more terrorist activity in every country, over reaction for perceived threats is already at an all time high, and will only get worst.

‘The police saw all the mess and assumed that we were making bombs which I thought was a bit presumptuous considering it had just been Halloween,’ said 27 year old Timmy Sampson, one of the members of the party group. I have to say that in this instance, I agree with him.
