Man Screaming Death Threats at Spider Triggers Full Police Response

Man Screaming Death Threats at Spider Triggers Full Police Response:  Police in Australia hurriedly dispatched multiple units to a home in Perth, after neighbors called in to report a man screaming "why don't you die?” at what turned out to be a man who is terrified of spiders screaming at an arachnid that invaded his house. 

Well, given that Australia is home to just tons of creatures that could put horror movie monsters to shame - I think his response was probably reasonable and justified.  In fact, just about anything found living in Australia can be found somewhere on one of those “world’s most dangerous lists.” 

And bear in mind, Australia is a place where spiders can be as huge as a Volkswagen Jetta SE - and yet be almost as deadly.  Why police would be crazy to enter the residence without their pistols drawn.  Even so, witnesses say police first tried to draw the spider out using a megaphone - “OK spider, this is the police - come out - with all eight of your hands up.”  As you can see, this story really has legs.  

Of course, on the other hand - had this all happened here in the US - a SWAT team would have been called in immediately, the homeowner would have been shot right on the spot, and the spider arrested and charged with a felony.  Why, because that’s the way we roll.

Aaannnnnd this is the why we have a fully charged dustbuster on every level.
Not that I will personally wield the dustbuster- it would mean actually having to get within a foot of the arachnid.
Good thing the BLP is always home.
