With their guns drawn, police surrounded a man who reportedly was trying to get through security at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with a bomb in a carry-on bag.
It was a drill, but the trouble was no one had told the cops, who thought it was real.
The routine drill conducted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began about 2:40 p.m. last Thursday, when a man with a fake bomb in his bag attempted to get through the security at checkpoint 2, which is near the United, American and U.S. Airways airlines ticketing counters, Hogan said. The screener identified what looked to be an explosive device and immediately notified authorities.
Within seconds, TSA officials notified police that the bomb was fake and the incident was merely a drill to test the response of screeners and the communication system. For security reasons, Hogan declined to say how many officers responded to the incident.

Thankfully they will review their failure to make the next failure less public.
It doesn’t matter that anyone nearly had a heart attack (I know mine starts to palpitate when I see the union cops now), all to show that these union TSA thugs are earning their gestapo paychecks.
who’s Hogan? Hulk Hogan? Paul Hogan?
Seriously, it is nice to see that they detected the device. I wonder how obvious it was?
Probably painted a bright red with “BOMB” in large white letters on it.....
Certainly a telling demonstration of the care/concern out buraucrats have for the safety of those paying for this sort of thing.......And they charge citizens with “Risking a Catastrophe” for yell “fire” in a crowd..... >PS
