Chromius, you're way off base

Every red-blooded american with a pulse and a brain knows what you can and can't take to the airport.

You telling me it shouldn't matter if I took 6 red candles tied together with a wind-up alarm clock to the airport in my carry-on bag?



Everyone that flies is fully conscious of the regulations and limitations. Purchasing an airline ticket is confirmation of a contract.

This stoopid bimbo knew EXACTLY what she was doing.

As far as being off base, she was under no contract since she hadn't purchased a ticket and was not boarding a flight. Basically, you're implying she can't wear that anywhere, since she wasn't getting on a plane or anything. She was meeting someone at the airport. She had a shirt that had to do with a school organization. She got through whatever security points with that stuff. She did not sneak it in, or do anything subversive.

What she had wasn't made to look like a bomb. What you're describing is made to look like a bomb. I'm assuming this sweatshirt wasn't an attempt to look like a bomb, but rather had to do with her school (and trust me, people at my university make weird *** clothes like this, so I'm not surprised at all).

I wouldn't have a problem if they wanted to inspect her and confirm that it wasn't a dangerous device, but to almost use lethal force is, in my opinion, way off base. That circuit board looks about as lethal as a cell phone. Are you saying I should be arrested if I strap a cellphone to my waist?

Anyone who let her through a security checkpoint and into an airport while she was wearing that stuff should be fired. Immediately.

Git er dun, God Bless America. Show'* her for wearing a sweatshirt with LED'* on it. Who wears a bomb on the outside of their clothes? i think this would be a much bigger deal if she had concealed that device. Her hair on the other hand... wtf is up with that?

Everyone has a right to be safe, and the TSA is tasked with keeping us safe. I fly fairly regularly, and I hope they lock her up.

1. To make an example of her for others who think 'art' gives them free speech rights at our expense.

2. To show her she can't turn our airports and our safety into her personal 'rights' soapbox.

x2.

what she wore was completely inappropriate, given her location and circumstance. she deserved what she got, though she doesnt deserve this publicity. 5 to 1 the publicity is part of what she wanted.

what she is: a stupid bimbo who knew what she was doing.

what she is not: rosa parks.

the airports are NOT a place for something like what she did.

Wow you can get arrested for anything these days. I dont think she did anything wrong. I think they over reacted.

some people think theres nothing wrong with screaming fire in a crowded building -- its just freedom of speech, right?

no, some things are disallowed for the sake of safety. like wearing a shirt which was made to look like a bomb, complete with PLAY-DOH.

the play-doh is the smoking gun here. shes just lucky there wasnt another one.
