Put down that MP3 player or we shoot

The Guardian has another over-reaction story where a woman at a bus stop reported a man using an MP3 player to the police because she thought the music player was a gun. He was subsequently arrested by armed officers.

The police were acting responsibly given the nature of the report and fortunately no one got hurt but they should remove the innocent man's fingerprints and DNA from their databases.
