A suspicious bag found on a Metro bus in Kent that caused an hours-long road closure and an evacuation of passengers turned out to be a King County Sheriff's Office training aid.

The bag was reported at 7:51 a.m. Monday on the bus at Southeast 240th Street and 104th Southeast. King County Sheriff’s Office bomb technicians responded and a robot was used to destroy the bag.

The Sheriff's Office later sent out a tweet apologizing to the drivers and businesses on Kent's East Hill who were impacted by the incident, saying their training aid was at fault. Southeast 24oth Street finally reopened around noon.

ONLY the cops should have guns.

ONLY the cops can be trusted with them —they have special magic training.

Plus, their hair is short.

And stuff.

Did they punish the officer who left this on the bus? If not, why not? It inconvenienced many. If someone else placed such a “suspicious bag” on public transportation, we'd have a legal problem from the cops.
