Man with a chain saw that was apparently covered with blood was let into the U.S.
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.

He's a naturalized American citizen, so ...

We\'re still #1!

"Nobody asked us to detain him," Anthony said. "Being bizarre is not a reason to keep somebody out of this country or lock them up. ... We are governed by laws and regulations, and he did not violate any regulations."

I would have scraped a sample off that chainsaw and sent it off to a lab. I assume the border patrol has some form of postal service at least.

Jeez, paranoid much?

Ya know, people do own chainsaws. And sometimes people get blood on themselves. It isn't the border patrol's place to jump to conclusions when they have terrorists to watch for.

Nah, s'no big deal. Take a quick sample, send it off, get the results as to whether it's human, and keep it filed on record. Cops do that shit all the time. And if it turns out to be nothing, oh well.

Still, it wouldn't have saved any lives, but it could help if an investigation is needed.

And most people don't own chainsaws with blood on them, if that's what it was.

You don't have to be paranoid, just observant.
