The pleasant hamlet of Keene, New Hampshire (having a population just over 23,000) was the site of Pumpkin Festival this past weekend. The festival
is a community-hosted, family-friendly celebration of fall and of what is unique about Keene and the Monadnock region.
It is also a celebration of artistry and creativity and a demonstration of our area’s commitment to non-profit efforts to serve those in need.
That innocuous description, however, was not fooling the Polizeichef of Keene, Kenneth Meola.
Herr Meola, consistent with his training by Chef der Deutschen Polizei im Reichsministerium des Innern Janet Napolitanno, suspected this might be the perfect venue for somebody to act in a way that warranted summary execution.
No one should be surprised, as Herr Polizeichef Meola’s conduct is consistent with official Ordnungspolizei (“DHS”) policy:
Every person without a uniform is an enemy waiting to be killed.
