-Chain saws are OK!
BOSTON -- On April 25, Gregory Despres arrived at the U.S.-Canadian border crossing at Calais, Maine, carrying a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chain saw stained with what appeared to be blood. U.S. customs agents confiscated the weapons and fingerprinted Despres. Then they let him into the United States.At a time when the United States is tightening its borders, how could a man toting what appeared to be a bloody chain saw be allowed into the country?
Bill Anthony, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the Canada-born Despres could not be detained because he is a naturalized U.S. citizen and was not wanted on any criminal charges on the day in question....
Are these people serious? I'm not sure I understand what the hell they are doing there in the first place. I know that if they catch you with a Cuban cigar they'll make your life misearble. A bloody chain saw I guess is less dangerous to our country than a Cohiba. Just looking at this guy's photo is enough to detain him.
