Attorney Dressed as Osama bin Laden Arrested in Maine
Attorney Tom Connolly was arrested by police in South Portland, Maine Tuesday morning, after motorists reported a man with a gun near Interstate 295. It turns out the gun was part of a Halloween costume, but it looked real enough to passersby and police.

Connolly was dressed in an Osama Bin Laden costume and holding a fake gun and a sign that said "I love TABOR".

Officers raced to the scene and drew their weapons on Connolly. They say Connolly didn't immediately respond to their commands. He was taken into custody a few minutes later.

"The officers ordered him to drop the weapon and lay on the ground. He still walked toward the officers, dropping what appeared to be hand granades onto the roadway. He finally complied with the request of the officers and laid the weapon down and laid down on the ground himself and he was subsequently arrested," said George Berry from South Portland Police.

16. Amazing that the proles are so programmed that they would react like this.
Never underestimate the stupidity of the proles and the power of propganda.

4. It's been weird in portland lately
A gigantic crane that dwarfed the skyline fell near maine medical center the other day.I heard a large crash and my coworkers at the hospital screaming "It fell it fell" I guess you would have to be there to realize how massive the damage was that weekend. There were trees down everywhere and I was litterally lifted off the street by a gust of wind on my way home from work.

On another day the crane would have fallen right into the hospital and you all would be hearing about it.

7. Osama sez "I Love TABOR" LOL!!!!!
FYI

TABOR is the "Taxpayers Bill of Rights" a Grover Norquist/Frank Rich/Heritage Foundation Maine referendum initiative that will destroy Democracy in the state (and public education, and health care, and snow plowing, and road repair, and fire and police protection...etc.).

Too funny...

15. CrackWell is trying to pass a poor-man's version of that (TEL). . .
in Ohio . . . should he become governor . . .

Pft.

BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!

Sorry, I couldn't say that with a straight face. Barring massive, riot-inciting election theft, the only way he's seeing the governor's mansion is on a Sunday drive.

27. What a dumbass...
just drop the fake weapons so they can approach and see it's a costume. All of it would take no more than 2 minutes. What a complete moron.

28. Connolly tipped the media off to a DUI arrest by George W. Bush
Attorney dressed as Osama arrested in Maine Portland, Maine -- Attorney Tom Connolly was arrested by South Portland police this morning, after motorists reported a man with a gun near Interstate 295. It turns out the gun was part of a Halloween costume, but it looked real enough to passersby and police. Connolly was dressed in an Osama Bin Laden costume and holding a fake gun and a sign that said "I love TABOR". Officers drew their weapons on Connolly, who was taken into custody a few minutes later. It will be up to the District Attorney's office to decide what charges to file, but police say one possibility is a charge of terrorizing. Connolly is a well-known attorney. He ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 1998. In 2000, Connolly tipped the media off to a 1970's DUI arrest by presidential candidate George W. Bush.
