OK, I see I should have made this one differently.  Here's what it is
supposed to convey:

a) Publish a newspaper article about how person A is about to be
   arrested on terrorism changes
b) The public reads it and goes in a panic, because they don't think.
c) Arrest person A for terrorizing people.  This is because they are
   in a panic over person A.

Blue: This doesn't make sense.  You caused all of this by
    digging too hard.
