    Would you let THIS guy into your country? Check out his photo! Yikes! :eek:

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=827664&CMP=OTC-RSSFeeds0312

    Short excerpt from story:

    "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 let him into the United States."

    Looks like one more guy is ready for the Zombie scenario! Alright! Either that, or Jason is truly not dead and taken over this dudes body. Whoa...

    Either way, I think we're in trouble y'all... :ninja:

    I'm gonna guess he's a Misfits fan, based on that photo.

    edit: ARGH, Golden Boy.

  8. I think trying to explain away the FREAKIN' BLOODSTAIN ON HIS NECK VISIBLE IN THE PHOTO as a result of seal hunting in Hudson Bay was a little on the flaky side...

    Actually in real life Alfalfa was a criminal and a jerk after he grew up, he was only marginally better when he was a kid. He ended up getting shot to death in his late twenties during an argument over a $10.00 debt.

    If the maniac was'nt a US citizen then he did not and does not have a right to be here. They should not need anything other than common sense to keep a guy with a bloody chainsaw out of the country.

    My favorite part is that he is carrying a bloody chainsaw, has blood on his pants, is hitchhiking .... and people picked him up!

    I am definitely putting a no-chainsaws sticker in the cab of my truck.

    Oh yeah... in fact, I invited him to my next birthday party... :rolleyes:

    Isn't crossing the border with suspicious equipment/gear/possible-weapons already a violation of some sort of rule or law? I mean, even if you could explain away all that other stuff, isn't the only purpose of brass knuckles to do damage to someone? Anyway, regardless of all that, aren't the border police/patrol and customs agents in any country "law enforcement" in that they are "enforcing laws" at the border? Such as that you can't come into the country with weapons or generally dangerous stuff on you?

    If I walked into *insert any country on earth here* with a bunch of suspicious stuff and possible weapons, I would understand their need for questions and fingerprinting.
