"He alarmed people for no legitimate reason. He caused 10 police cars to come at a high rate of speed. We shut down the offices in the building for safety purposes," said Chief Dennis McMaster, East Pennsboro Township Police.
. . .
Police have charged the man with disorderly conduct.

I can somewhat understand the initial response. The police were called about a man in the building with a rifle. It makes sense that they would respond with enough people to form an active shooter response. If they had not done so and an active shooter incident took place they would get blasted for not enough of a response. Either way they are going to get hammered; so, they might as well respond for the worst and hope for the best.

As for the charges, they are ridiculous.

You and I think a lot alike.

I not only understand the initial response, but expect it. The calls come in as a man with a rifle (in an area where a public shooting occurred recently). I expect multiple police cars, and I expect them to respond quickly.

With that having been said, I expect the police to act rationally once they discover that it was all a misunderstanding.

I doubt the charges will hold up under Pa law.

Everything but the charge and "As a precaution 2 nearby schools and Holy Spirit Hospital were also put in lockdown." seems reasonable.
