“This could have been incredibly dangerous. We have a person who is walking around swinging two large knives and not acting rationally, based on the reports. Swinging them at passing cars. Striking passing cars,” Barineau said. “It's fortunate nobody was actually walking around giving the person an opportunity to actually attack them in person.”

They looked like machetes to me. My wife and I was just at that very spot about two weeks ago. A few folks said on the news that they locked their doors to their business.

I would not have stopped or slowed down that is for sure.

Uh oh... time to do as London and ban all sharp knives.
In my home, one is allowed to spit on the floor in any situation where they are forced to say the word, Obama.
