Slightly misleading, as the officers said later that there was no "standoff" with the statue. But then they would say that, wouldn't they?

To be fair, the officers did see a figure holding a weapon outside of a window. I can't blame them for being cautious, even though it turned to be a statue.

Oops :D

In fairness, the last armed man to be spotted in combat gear and a gas mask massacred a bunch of people in Colorado, so let's not roll our eyes or demean those silly Americans eh? :wink:

Well, better they take a shadowy gun holding silhouette seriously and have it turn out to be nothing than the other way around...

I am surprised no one was fined over this though.

Probably no more than an advertising gimmick. Did anybody notice the date and time on the "CAM2" monitor?
