Anthracite: Precaution of what?I have come to the conclusion that "Common Sense" needs to be taught in school...
Sybarite: They should never have made Jamie Hyneman head of the ATF.
Fish in a Barrel: So they don't think it's a bomb, they let the guy catch the flight (so they clearly don't think he's a threat), but they're going to blow up this man's work equipment anyhow. And they probably won't reimburse him for the destruction of his property.
sprawl15: Agents reportedly overheard suspect say "I got some new crocs and they are the bomb".
Calmamity: Fu*k the TSA. Fu*king brownshirt shiatweasels.
Enemabag Jones: The passenger has said the item is part of his work. The terminal was evacuated, but was given the all-clear just after noon.The passenger was allowed to travel on to Dallas. He is going, however, without his luggage which has been taken to the Birmingham Police Department's range. Bomb experts there will remotely detonate the luggage as a precaution.So either:1-They are letting a guy traveling with a pipe bomb to take the flight.2-They are blowing up luggage for shiats and giggles.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qro7oBzUBosVery safe for work clip.
HypnozombieX: And once again they are able to destroy someones private property with absolute impunity.Tell me again how we're not in a police state?
tuxq: I know everyone with a hair in their ass has been throwing around the word "tyranny" lately, but this is a very clear example of tyranny. There is no more freedom in this country. They may be selective as to when they choose to be forceful, but that's not freedom... that's just their own laziness... I guess their laziness will be our Godsend.
xria: HypnozombieX: And once again they are able to destroy someones private property with absolute impunity.Tell me again how we're not in a police state?Because you are not currently in jail awaiting a death sentence for questioning the government?This is pretty stupid stuff, sure, but to suggest it equates to a police state makes you look even stupider than the guys blowing up peoples socks "just in case" they are WMDs.
Harry Freakstorm: Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your time. It is a great pleasure to be here in Dallas and given the opportunity to demonstrate my company's latest device, the minaturized catalytic converter.Now you've seen the reports and how this device will replace all catalytic devices on automobiles in the U S. The device uses none of the expensive metals and removes 20% more pollutants than traditional devices. All at a cost savings of 50% per unit.Sadly, there was an incident at the Birmingham airport and I don't have the device with me. So, representing it is this "Classico Hot Dog" that I purchased at the Dallas airport before coming here. Now, look at the hot dog itself. That is where our propriety system is located and our system is neither beef nor beef by products. The bun represent the standard ceramic outer shell and it can handle heat up to 15000 degrees. Our shell, not the hot dog bun. The mustard represents, I dunno. Your company logo which will appear on each and every hot dog, er catalytic converter sold.Please sir. Don't eat the catalytic converter. I know it's close to lunch, but I gotta demo it over at Ford this afternoon.
