Police Dash Terror Threat Posed By Woman’s Quinoa

Adam Gabbatt relates this ridiculous tale of institutional idiocy for The Guardian:

A New York woman says her family’s interest in the purchase of pressure cookers and backpacks led to a home visit by six police investigators demanding information about her job, her husband’s ancestry and the preparation of quinoa.

[…] “What the hell is quinoa?” police asked when Catalano’s husband told them what pressure cookers were used for in their household.

It’s good to know that our fascist storm troopers are complete morons, right?
