Hey everybody, the French Gendarmerie Départementale
isn't the only law enforcement agency with a habit of leaving explosives
laying around airports after training exercises. Looks like it's the LAPD that now has some 'splaining to do
, not only on the issue of how explosives were left behind in the first damn place, but also on the embarrassing failure of the K-9 unit that subsequently investigated the package to hit on said explosives.
To make matters worse, after the dog failed to signal his handler opened the package in the middle of a crowded airport concourse, a move which could have been catastrophic if the "bomb" was anything other that a training device.
Doesn't give me much confidence in the LAPD's ability to protect the airport, which, as past events have shown
, is certainly on the short list of sites that terrorists would love to hit.
