State Auditor John Morrison mistaken as Blackberry toting gunman

by Jamee Greer

How does one mistake a Blackberry for a handgun? I think this says something very shocking regarding the culture of fear we live in today.

The dark-haired man armed with a Blackberry – which was mistaken for a handgun in Thursday’s Carroll College incident – was none other than Montana Auditor John Morrison.

At least 16 law enforcement officers from various agencies responded to the report of a man in dark clothing slipping what looked like a handgun into his pocket while walking into the student union building at about 1:35 p.m. Thursday.

Or maybe John Morrison needs to buy a newer Blackberry. New ones are so sleek! And their screens so bright and clear, they’re guaranteed to never be mistaken as a handgun – or your money back!

As a student who attended high school in the anxiety prone post-Columbine nineties, and a university student today post VirginaTech, I know school violence is something to be taken very seriously.

At the same time, I can’t believe we’ve gotten to the point where our fears have become this irrational.

    “Morrison said he thought the college and law enforcement officials handled the situation very professionally.”

    With all due respect to our State Auditor, college and law enforcement officials handled the situation with a hysterical overreaction.

    All seriousness aside, I hear there is no truth to the rumor that it was called in by Matt Singer.

  3. No truth whatsoever. Matt was meeting with George Soros. I know, because I was with them.
