Idiots are alive and well.
Ever since this Target restroom drama started, bigots are doing the most to cause issues. Yesterday, at a Target store in Bradley, Illinois, Michael Merichko protested the new restroom policy.
But here's the interesting part, his "protest" was called in as an Active Shooter.
Michael L. Merichko, 39, was charged with disorderly conduct after the incident just before 1 p.m. at the Target, 1650 N. Illinois Highway 50 in Bradley, according to a release from Bradley police. Police determined there was “no reason to believe he threatened anyone,” and are now trying to figure out why the emergency call came over as an active shooter, said Lt. Mike Johnston, a police spokesman.This is only the beginning.
When police were called to the store, Bradley officers and officers from several neighboring jurisdictions converged on the Target, according to a police news release. There, they found Merichko outside the store’s main entrance and took him into custody without incident, Johnston said.
When officers investigated, Johnston said they found out that Merichko “caused a disturbance inside” the store in protest of Target’s policy, announced in April, that it welcomes employees and customers to “use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” according to the announcement.
