    MILWAUKEE - Two men called UWM Campus police early Sunday morning reporting a suspicious man who might have a gun in the student union on Kenwood Blvd.


    The witnesses said that the man told them that he needed to get a book from the library.


    When police arrived, they called for backup from Shorewood and searched the student union.


    They eventually found the man outside the library. They put him into the back of the squad car without incident.


    It's unclear if the man is a UWM student. He did not have a gun.


    Nobody was hurt. The man may face charges for being in the union after hours.

    "May face charges for being in the union after hours?"

    Our founding fathers would spit on crap like this as a way to charge people with petty victimless crimes.

    Why not charge the caller for making a frivolous call?

    All suspicious men might have a gun as it is their Second Amendment Right unless the State would exercise prior restraint.

    I am not sure just how the 'union" is organized butI don't see how it can be illegal to be there "after hours". There is just no law about that. It could be there is a sign up saying no entrance after 10pm or something, but that would indicate a trespassing charge would be in order.

    Filing a false police report? Wasteful use of public resources? Just make them pay for the officer's pay to take the call? I mean think about... if I called 911 to report that my house was on fire, and it wasn't, I'd sure as hell have to pay some fine to the fire department.
