    Way to blow this one out of proportion, media. I would bet there wasn't even an actual gun involved. Anyone know anything about this?

    Spokane library briefly evacuated after comment THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    SPOKANE, Wash. -- Police temporarily evacuated the Spokane Public Library and called the SWAT team after receiving a report that a person in a library restroom had threatened to shoot the next person who entered.
    A woman who had used the women's third floor restroom reported the comment Friday afternoon to library personnel, saying the threat came from a man lying in one of the stalls. Library officials called 911.
    After the building was evacuated and nearby streets blocked off, SWAT team members, who had been on a training day, arrived and started talking with the person in the restroom. Turns out it was an unarmed woman, who eventually walked out.
    Officer Michael McCasland says the woman was booked into the Spokane County Jail for investigation of harassment threats to kill.

    Jeez, the things you gotta do these days to get a little privacy in a library.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    She probably was doing them a favor by letting them know what she was doing in there was deadly.

    It was probably a crazy bag lady.
