One Main Place in Dallas is being evacuated after a bomb-sniffing dog hit on a package.

” police ordinance squad is headed to the location “

So are they going to site someone for violating a city ordinance? It’s Ordnance as in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) or Bomb Squad. Sheech!

They had the LA EOD on Discovery Channel show. I liked the bumper sticker on the back of their truck. "If you see us running CATCH UP".

Dogs sniff packages all the time. As long as they're tall enough to reach a crotch.

LOL, that's pretty funny.

Seriously, the way that dogs are usually trained to do this is to simply sit.

The suspicious package was found in the building’s basement.

The Dallas Police Department’s bomb squad was headed to the building.

As of 10:14 a.m., the building was not fully evacuated.

The building is located at 1201 Main Street in downtown Dallas. Bank of America is one of the building’s key tenants, according to DPD officials.

A significant portion of the building is data space, while the plaza level houses an assortment of retailers and restaurants, including Treebirds, Coulters BBQ, Blimpies and Allstate, according to commercial leasing specialists familiar with the property.

Could have been a dry run for Super Bowl week.

Even if you're right - and you probably are - it WON'T stop the MSM from blaming conservatives until we can PROVE we're not guilty. Only liberals are 'innocent until proven guilty'... Krugman's warming up the hate machine...

They would say right wing radio people had inflamed his hatred of the good abortion doctors - and that being gay and islamist had no effect on the crime... Rush's fault - maybe Palin's...

Reminds me that during the Kennedy assassination coverage, they mentioned ad nauseum about how Adlai Stevenson was attacked in Dallas a few weeks before by right wingers.

Better than a box of hammers!
Somebody who handled the box may have been to the range the day before. Dog’s noses are pretty good!

That depends on whether there was black, crippled lesbian in to get an abortion impregnated from a lily white bible-thumping rapist...
