People in Clovis, N.M., saw something suspicious. A kid at Marshall Junior High School was carrying a two-and-a-half-foot-long object wrapped in foil. Based on that warning, police closed the streets and put armed officers on nearby rooftops. Only then did somebody ask the kid to unwrap the package. He was carrying a giant burrito... made for extra credit. Could be dangerous — just not the way everybody feared.
