A man flying from Boston to Jamaica had his bag detonate when a baggage handler doing the “careful handling” of his bags dropped the bag igniting one primer which in turn set off the remainder of the ammo reloading primers in the bag. Whether or not this man gets charged with a criminal charge he should be charged with stupidity.
The moronic flyer now faces the possibility of up to 5 years in prison. To point out just how moronic this was, packing primers in his bag regardless of how roughly handled would have been totally legal had this idiot declared to Boston security that the primers were in the bag. Another thing if the primers had been properly packed in the correct containers they should not have gone off.
The wrong thinking or non-thinking man is lucky that he did not drop the bag inside the terminal where the popping primers could have caused a panic or injury to many. Or perhaps they could have been set off near a fuel truck that was releasing fuel vapors causing more then just a pop and the baggage handlers soiled underwear.
We don’t need to comment on how our bags are obviously “well handled” since primers ignite on impact. The baggage handler must have been real careful with the bag. The fact that the bag cleared TSA security checks in Boston to have made it to Miami where the bag was dropped and popped says something. This makes me wonder with all the changes and added security checks why did something that is hazardous and was not being hidden make it through security.
This occurrence leaves me with questions about TSA security, baggage handlers, and the intelligence of people in general.
