The TV newsies now describe the White House fence jumper as being armed with a knife with a 3 inch blade. That has become a "deadly weapon". So what was the jumper carrying? Really? Just a pocket knife? a switchblade? A lock blade knife? I keep a short lock blade knife in my desk drawer to open the mail.
Was this jumper really carrying a real weapon? Or are the TV newsies making a big deal out of a pocket knife like most Americans carry all the time?
