Was It "Talk Like A Pirate Day?"
[caption id="attachment_2461" align="alignnone" width="400"] "Guys, it's just a costume, I swear."[/caption] When I think of America, I think of freedom. And that includes the freedom to walk down one's own street dressed as a pirate, and not have your neighbors point guns at you. If you read the article, you find out that this man was dressed in a pirate costume, carrying a toy gun and sword, and his neighbors were threatened enough by this display that they called 911 and then tracked the guy down and put him on the ground at gunpoint. Unfortunately the news story did not include a picture of the man in his full pirate regalia, because where the blame for this story falls really depends on how much he looked like an actual pirate, and how much he just looked like a guy with an unkempt beard and weapons.
