Unattended backpack? Call bomb squad.

In our present-day, over-sensitive society, where an unattended backpack calls for police resources better spent elsewhere, we call out the bomb squad. Backpack with toy gun causes scare at Drake
A backpack containing a toy metal cap gun, a toy dinosaur and Twinkies put Drake University and Des Moines police on high alert Tuesday.

Drake security and the Des Moines police bomb squad investigated the bag. Police took an X-ray and saw what appeared to be a handgun inside. However, when investigators cut the bag open, they found the toy cap gun still inside its packaging, the dinosaur and the snack cakes.
I can agree with the "better safe than sorry" crowd, because I'm one of them. Some kid needs a kick in the back-side for this.
