  •  Or it might not be (9+ / 0-)

    When the DC sniper incidents happened, at some point the police mentioned a report of an unmarked white van at one of the scenes. The panic over white vans after that was out of control. When the culprits were arrested, it turned out they had a blue sedan.

    Could be backpacks involved, could not be.

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

    •  the whole white van thing was idiotic (4+ / 0-)

      I live in the DC area.  You could not look on any street at any time and not see white trucks or vans all over the place.

      •  White Vans are often fleet vehicles. (1+ / 0-)

        When I worked for NCR, we went from having white Econoline vans, to white Pontiac Aztecs. Ugliest vehicle in America at the time. Had at least one person point that out in a parking lot every week. I was glad I could agree, and blame it on the company.

        Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
