Welcome to Chicken Little America, Where People Panic Over Nothing      August 15, 2016  by Bob Owens

Twice this weekend, my fellow Americans engaged in mass panic over absolutely nothing.
In Raleigh, NC, reports of an “active shooter” at the food court in Crabtree Valley Mall led to a full on panic that put 12 people in local hospital emergency rooms with injuries resulting from falls and being trampled.

The same sort of mass hysteria repeated itself at JFK International Airport in New York yesterday, where two passengers freaked out over a loud sound and called police in a panic. Hundreds of passenger-lemmings “hid” (I use that in the most sarcastic sense possible) from not-existent threats, then were ordered out of the terminal as officers rushed into the airport to discover… absolutely nothing
