One of the more disastrously misheard lyrics we can think of took place yesterday, when 19-year-old Ambridge, Pennsylvania high school student Travis Clawson missed an optometry appointment, causing the office’s receptionist to call him. He didn’t answer, his voicemail message playing instead, in which Clawson rapped the intro lyrics to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Unfortunately, she critically misheard a sequence in the rap — “chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool and all, shooting some b-ball outside of the school” — hearing instead “shooting some people outside of the school.” She promptly called the police, who then called the school district, and as nobody was quite sure where Clawson was, the whole district was put on lockdown. He was eventually found in his high school’s guidance office, and the confusion was explained, though James Mann, the acting police chief, urged Clawson’s parents to make him change the outgoing message. Clawson’s father was unhappy with the entire ordeal: “An innocent young man was embarrassed. How is he supposed to go back to school and face his classmates?” source

He didn’t want to wait the 14 days. So they denied him. The sale did not take place.
A law enforcement official • Speaking off the record regarding the Connecticut shooting suspect’s attempted purchase of a ”long gun” rifle earlier this week from a local gun shop. He was turned away because he didn’t want to wait. So … wait. Nobody saw anything suspicious about this encounter?

Ryan Lanza, deceased, is the suspect in the Sandy Hook shooting. Various Lanza-centric Facebook pages are popping up left and right, mostly either condemning him or, in some cases, mourning his death. Let’s wait until all of the facts come in before we conclude anything, and let’s not rely on Facebook to get those facts.
