Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 20, 2014

Federal authorities sought doomsday prepper Martin Winters for two days in the woods of east Hillsborough County, Florida, attempting to arrest him on weapons charges. On the third day, agents didn't need to look far at all. Winters, soggy-shoed and hungry, waited with a daughter in a car outside an FBI field office in Tampa Wednesday as his attorneys stepped up to a reception desk and arranged his surrender. In trade, he got cheeseburgers, fries, Gatorade, dry shoes, praise from the FBI and a morning free of gunfire.

Two days? That's it? This is the kind of person we're going to count on when Obama takes our guns and sends us to FEMA camps?

They probably told him an In-N-Out had just opened in Florida and then tried to pass off a burger from shake shack as the real thing.

How can you be a prepper in Florida? If you dig a hole for your bunker it just fills with water.

No shots fired? That is a BIG mitigating factor. Instead of a zillion years in prison some judge or DA will probably offer a plea bargain.

"The agreement was for no pickles on the burger. I said NO PICKLES! You have to release me now."
