Pop quiz time. Imagine it's early evening. You're approached by a bearded man wearing a robe and speaking broken English.

Do you:

a) Tell the man you can't understand him.
b) Ignore him, he's probably a homeless crazy person.
c) Grab a tire iron out of the trunk and chase the guy - he's clearly a terrorist.

If you're Jasen Bruce, you picked c).

Question Two: Having chased down this 'terrorist' and clubbing him in the head several times with aforementioned tire iron, when asked by police what was going on ...

a) Tell the 911 Operator you captured a terrorist.
b) Tell responding officers the robed man walked up and grabbed at your crotch.
c) Tell responding officers the robed man shouted 'Allahu Akbar!'
d) All of the above.

Yep. Jasen Bruce picked d).
