Three schools in the north Phoenix suburb of Cave Creek were on lockdown for about 45 minutes Wednesday morning after a student at Desert Arroyo Middle School reported seeing a person dressed as Batman run across campus, jump a fence and disappear into the desert, Scottsdale police Sgt.

The student described the person as 6 feet 3 inches tall and possibly male. "We're assuming it was male, although they did have a mask on," Clark said.
Presumably America's law enforcement has learned from the President's mistake in ignoring the "Bin Laden determined to strike in the United States" memos and is now accepting the daydreams of ten-year-olds as credible threats. The police couldn't find any individual like the one described anywhere in the area, though some observers noted that billionaire Bruce Wayne looked somewhat peaked when he arrived late at a nearby charity fundraiser.
