A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly told the Associated Press that 28-year-old Dicarlo Bennett, a Servisair employee, was arrested late Tuesday.

I don’t think the link will work on this thread because it is from the mobile version not desktop.

Dry ice explodes? How does one get frozen carbon dioxide to explode?

An employee?!

I never would have guessed.

Not only that, but my attention is drawn elsewhere, to more important matters.

I’ll leave the dog and pony show to the liberals.

Classy employee.

What a damn doofus.

Makes a loud bang and you lose your job.

At a guess? Insert it into a very sturdy container than add a small amount of water, then quickly and strongly seal it and leave.

Pressure "explosion", not the shrapnel-type from something like a grenade, unless you sealed it in a metal- or ceramic- composure container, but the damage is more on the nerves than physical. Barring any unfortunately-aimed shards.

Again, just guessing. Having seen the odd YouTube vidpost or two...

Why not pop a paper bag behind your bosses head at 6 Am while he is taking a sip of hot coffee?

When dry ice sublimates it turns from a solid to a gas. If the pressure is high enough it turns back into a liquid if it is below the critical temperature. At that temperature however, the pressure is close to 1000 PSI.

So yes, if dry ice is placed in a container when it adsorbs enough heat it will explode when the pressure exceeds what the container can withstand.

Much ado about nothing. If this is the only reason we have airport cops chasing this, then we are doomed. The dinosaur media once again shows its idiocy.

confine it in a closed container and as it begins to warm up and vaporize the pressure builds. Does this answer your question....?

Yup. I was thinking of a high explosive event. Dry ice isn’t a high explosive.

We made dry ice bombs in high school. Also any exothermic powder or granules mixed with liquid. A good one was granulated chlorine with acid poured in. Put the cap on damn fast and run like hell. In threaded PVC tube with caps on both ends it explodes inside a closed vehicle with enough force to blow out every window and then chlorine burns anything the residue touches.

A dust explosion got us the biggest boom along with flames.

This is the stuff you used to do as a kid. Now it's something Homeland Security goes nuts over.

What’s next? LAX under siege from a potato mortar cannon? We used to fire tennis balls over a hundred yards with campbell’s soup cans with the ends cut out and duct taped together except for the last one you made a small hole to spray in the ronson lighter fluid and stuff the fuse.

My money says the guy works for Sky Chefs. That's where he got the dry ice. The catering people at LAX are usually illegal aliens and they used to walk around TSA screening (yes, you read that right) and directly access the ramp without going through metal detector/Xray screening.

I heard that they halted the walk-arounds sometime after 2006, but it went on for way too long. This was probably some type of test run to see how ground security would react.

Chertoff’made milions off of terrorism by selling body scanners. Maybe they’ll now come up with a dry ice scanner. Gen Smedley Butler had it right.

An employee?!

On 9/11, the box cutters were likely planted on the plane by somebody on the ground cleaning crew. After 9/11, there was an announcement that box cutters were found on two other planes that never took off.
