Manhunt for Paris Poe

They caught Paris Poe, it's safe to go outside now. I wonder if anyone will get the $20,000 reward.

What was with all that panic? It wasn't like the guy was carjacking his way from house to house, murdering familes and eating their pets. He stayed at a Comfort Inn last night. This isn't the first time the feds have been in town looking for somebody accused of murder in a drug conspiracy or bank robbery, which I assume was also the case with Mr. Poe. But everybody freaked out this time. Weird.

Law enforcement agencies exercising self-importance in front of news agencies desperate for a big story.

Maybe they were envious because the Boston guys got to bring out all their stuff and nothing ever happens around here once people quit falling through the ice.

Tweet from NBC15's Rachelle Baillon:

Just spoke with Verona superintendent. Confirmed that students weren't allowed to leave classroom to use the bathroom, had to go in buckets.

The Verona superintendent has now issued an apology. He should also have to empty the buckets.

People have a pretty tough time with the lakes' liquid state as well.

Too bad for him he didn't come here Sat night. The cops would be busy with Mifflin St. Here are more criminals on the loose:

It seems there are a few bugs in the system. This happened near my neighborhood. I got a reverse 911 call in the evening, after they had nabbed Mr. Poe.

I'm not sure why all the fuss, except that the guy apparently was tipped off about the impending bust at the nearby motel just 10 minutes before it was to happen. Maybe the authorities thought there was some danger this guy would be a bit rattled, try to take someone hostage, or be more violent than he turned out to be.
