SHAME!!! GUNFIRE SOCIAL MEDIA FAKE NEWS AT OLD SETTLER'S DAY EVENT SPARKS OLATHE, KANSAS 'KAREN' PANIC!!!
Far too many suburbanites made the worst possible use of their pricey mobile phones and sparked alarm overnight.
To wit . . .
HIGH-ANXIETY IS THE MAIN REASON WORKING-CLASS WHITE PEOPLE CAN'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE: JOCO CULTURE OF FEAR RUINS OLD SETTLER'S DAY!!!
The behavior is symptomatic of so many angry comments on this blog everyday. Panicked, indignant, self-righteous and certain that somebody is coming to steal their cheese despite a great deal of evidence that their fading fortunes don't even register a blip on the radar of anybody but their frenemies.
Police were forced to continually calm the crowd that refused to believe social media sharing hysteria didn't equal any alarm in the real world.
Olathe PD: OLD SETTLERS -- Again, we are not in contact with any eye witnesses to an armed disturbance. We are not in contact with any injured persons. If you have direct knowledge of any suspicious or criminal incidents please contact police.
Dive into that thread and witness "Karen" and her many clones swearing up & down that somebody was shot despite constant assurances to the contrary.
A poor soul taking a fall sparked panic and livened up what seems like a pretty lame way to spend a Saturday night when, in fact, running to keyboard to argue with strangers is a lot more entertaining.
TVs kinda ramped up the drama but basically helped Olathe police give the all-clear in the end.

Again . . .
Nothing happened but a disturbing demonstration of quiet lives of suburban desperation lashing out against the silence of the digital void.
You decide . . .
