Based on a true story
Despite the pastor's plead to leave, a number of people surrounded the backpack and started taking pictures. Many posted pictures to Instagram and Facebook; others were live-tweeting #The Backpack. Some even broadcast it live on Facebook as breaking news. Due to the volume of people, it took the police several minutes to disperse the curious crowd and quarantine the suspicious backpack. When it was determined that there was no bomb in the backpack, people left disappointed.
