ATF agents are always on alert for anything suspicious including ninjas.
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm agents, on campus Tuesday for Project Safe Neighborhoods training, detained a suspicious individual near the Georgia Center, University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said.
Jeremiah Ransom, a sophomore from Macon, was leaving a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event when he was detained.
After being held in investigative detention, he was found to have violated no criminal laws and was not arrested.
It was surreal, Ransom said. I was jogging from Wesley to Snelling when I heard someone yell freeze.
Ransom said he thought a friend was playing a joke before he realized officers had guns drawn and pointed at him.
ATF agents had noticed Ransoms suspicious behavior and clothing and gave chase, apprehending him, Williamson said.
Agents noticed someone wearing a bandanna across the face and acting in a somewhat suspicious manner, peeping around the corner, said ATF special agent in charge Vanessa McLemore.
Ransom was wearing black sweatpants and an athletic T-shirt with one red bandanna covering the bottom half of his face and another covering the top of his head, Williamson said.
Seeing someone with something across the face, from a federal standpoint thats not right, McLemore said, explaining why agents believed something to be amiss.
Agents noticed Ransom peering around a corner and said when police sirens sounded, he took off running.
After chasing Ransom and identifying themselves, ATF agents detained him, turning him over once University Police arrived, McLemore said.
Ransom said Williamson told him the incident should not have been handled in such a manner and he would file a complaint with the ATF.
I was in shock, to say the least, Ransom said.
Of course you can't really do that or you shouldn't be able to do so.
This one seems clear cut enough that the agent just might get into some real trouble.
Of course several FBI, ATF etc. agents have committed serious crimes before including murder without suffering so who knows.
Many posters on this thread seem to believe that this kid has a "sure win" suit against the BATF, or, at least, against these agents. I certainly do wish that was true. It's NOT. It's not even close.
I'd like to believe that if the kid had been very seriously injured, or killed, during this incident, that he then might have a case. But I know better. Been there; done that.
Ya'all need to adjust to reality! If you can't get used to the idea of having federal agents grinding your head into the pavement with their knees, just cause they feel like it, maybe you best move to a different country.

Hey, no argument it'll be an uphill battle--against the ATF, it always is. But a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is an awfully talkative picture right here. I would be real pissed off if I were the boss ATF guy and had to back up this SOB kneeing the kid on the neck. And I think most courts would let the issue go to the jury IF the kid has proven damages.
And then the University Police still had to book him and process him afterwords, and then take him to the city lock up while everything cleared.
Or an antiwar protester. The Feds leave them alone, even though many of the groups get foreign funding and threaten to overthrow the government.
They arrested a gun owning white person not involved in the antiwar or socialism movements. No discrimination here (in the moonbat's view)
I would like to re-iterate that the Wesley Foundation is an evangelical Christian organization. It's named after John & Charles Wesley, leaders in the Great Awakening, and the founders of Methodism.
They attacked a scrawny white *Christian* kid. No harm, no foul.
Now if he'd just come from the Nation of Islam meeting, that'd be cause for a lawsuit!
To further confuse the issue, you can also eat baccala which is dried, salted fish. It use to be cod when there was still lots of cod, a wonderful fish.
This was an Italian and Sicillian food mostly so people inland could have fish for meatless Fridays.
Kinda reminds us how DETESTIBLE these 'officers' are, doesn't it?
"WTF are college kids doing playing "ninja and pirate"?
Its a long standing joke on maddox.xmission.com and his friends. It's blossomed to a new realm of stupidity. Fun for funs sake.

That seems pretty abusive !
He can grind folks faces away all he wants, his union will protect him.
You don't know that the ninja is a pirate's mortal enemy?!? As much as I despise the BATFags, I'm glad this ninja punk got what was coming to him. AAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
WTF is Pirate vs. Ninja? When I was at U of Chicago, we had scavenger hunt.
G.G. Liddy has an alternate solution, but we all have to practice it for it to work.
But we have ask Clair if it's time yet. I suspect the answer is still, not quite yet.
Heavens, can't have that.
At least they weren't out doing a little wilding for their fun.
Fashion Police, or Fascist Police?
I see them do that crap on Cops all the time. They pull someone over, throw handcuffs on them, then try to figure out if they've committed a crime and can be arrested. Now days, it's "handcuffs first, detection of a crime later", which I guess is somewhat better than "Shoot first, ask questions later", as the JBTs would like it to be.
Maybe, there was a woman in Lima Ohio that turned 114 back in 2003. Is she still alive? If so, maybe someone could ask her if her parents ever told her about how it use to be when freedom was real.
