Canada: Passenger allowed onto flight after security confiscate his bomb

#1
A man in Edmonton was allowed to board a flight after a pipe bomb found in his bag was confiscated by airport security, it appears.

A security guard at Edmonton International Airport even tried to hand the bomb back to the passenger, CBC News reports.

The passenger in question, 18-year-old Skylar Vincent Murphy, was on his way to Mexico when the explosive device was found by airport security in his bag. A guard was reportedly caught on camera passing the bomb back to Murphy after inspecting his carry-on luggage. Apparently the teenager refused to take it back even when told he could keep it.

The bomb was said to be 15cm long and filled with gunpowder. The teenager claimed to have forgotten it was in the bag after making it with a friend for fun some months before.

He subsequently pleaded guilty and was fined 100 Canadian dollars.

According to the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, several officers involved have been suspended. Canada's Federal Transport Minister Lisa Raitt told CBC News it was "unacceptable" that someone found in possession of a bomb was allowed to continue with his journey.

there, now the whole article has been quoted

"Oh, hey, sorry, that's a friend's bomb. I left it in my case on accident."

"Oh okay, no biggie. We're gonna have to fine you 100 dollars, though. It's policy, sorry that I gotta do that."

"Oh okay, I understand. Sorry again."

"Have a safe flight. Sorry."

They even tried to give him it back but he said "no, it's okay, sorry"

He would have been shot on the spot after being felt up by TSA agents and then taken to hospital where his bill would be in the millions and he'd spent the rest of his days being attacked by hurricanes and floods whilst gang war waged around the bridge where he now lives.

To be fair, the bill would not be any greater than 10k.

The rest I cannot account for.

Did you know you can't come into Canada if you have a DUI on record? Not sure if it's like that for anywhere else but that's just ridiculous

Should say visit. If you live in Canada or are a citizen of course you can come back in

As a Canadian, I can say that it was an honest mistake. The dude seems on the up and up
Israel is a terrorist state.

I'm sure they thought it was a seal club.

At the worst he was just going to kill a bunch of Edmontonians. Hardly a big deal and I can see the logic in only giving him a fine.

At best a bunch of Mexicans?

Genius.

Or perhaps there is a huge conspiracy and the security officers were a part of his terrorist plot.
I have nothing important to say
#25
^ He didn't take the bomb back, clearly not a very good terrorist.

They only had him pay a fine because they don't understand his culture.
