Typical. Intelligent enough to get into MIT but not a lick of common sense! This girl is vying for candidacy in the Darwin Awards competition.

"Simpson, who said she was wearing an art project so she would stand out at the school's Career Day, was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace and possessing a hoax device."

Too bad they didn't shoot her on the spot. Art is always worth more after the artist is dead. What career was she dressed for? terrorist?

If they had riddled her idiot body with about one hundred rounds of 50mm steel jacketed bullets, and then shown it on prime time (we want to warn you that some of these images may be disturbing) maybe even some of her little idiot friends might think twice before trying such a stupid stunt.

The most surprising part of this whole sorry episode was the number of people supporting her on another thread, same subject.

HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE.... At the age of 19 you should know better then this; it is not like our security measures at airports have not been talked about publicly. If this was truly a piece of art which is BS then she should have cleared it ahead of time, this was some stupid young girl who thought she was being funny and cute. I personally am thrilled with the strict safety measures that are taken at our airports, I would hate to be a passenger on the next plane that terrorist take over. How about we teach common sense at our colleges?

America is becoming a chicken sh88 country. Lucky to be alive blah blah blah. Normal people are starting to hate the country bigtime. And this is what the "Bomb" is about. She probably wanted to get killed to leave a message. Don't always believe what you believe to be true.

I agree -- a highly intelligent bimbo and another case of felonious stupidity.

I find it hard to belive that she didn't realize what she was doing. "Art"? I think not. The question is how severly should she be treated. I would think as a minimum she should end up with sufficient punishment to serve as an example for the NEXT doofus who ends up killing himself and leaving some policeman to live with the outcome.

Why dont the police state cops say they are lucky they didnt get blown to bits? Oh I forgot they are trying desperately to strike fear in the hearts of citizens to curb any unwanted dissent. Or there is always tazering for that improper question. I am sick and tired of fascist cops that play god and demand to be worshipped and have people tremble at their presence. When cops are trigger happy murderers with a state issued licence to kill who is going to protect and serve. In the words of Tupac "punk ass police"

Can they shoot her retroactively? Also any student club/fraternity/sorority that might have had a hand in it. If you want to be funny, go to amatuer night at a comedy club.

Then "normal" people can leave as well as anyone who thinks America is a chicken sh88 country, no one is forcing you or anyone else to leave. Anyone who thinks their is someplace better to live BYE! If your not part of the solution for making things better you are part of the problem for making them worse. If she wanted to get killed to leave some sort of message first then she probably woulnd't have followed the officer's commands and second I think her message would have been blown up with her.

There are many places better then America. Don't even lie to yourself sunny. The Health care system is ranked #38 in the World and is the most expensive. The legal system is corrupt as all hell. Everyone I know agrees to that. The Govt is in shambles and owes 10 trillion dollars and continues to spend like a drunk sailor. The Govt is hated by people who always believed in it. People who were in all the Wars say this is not right. And who are you to tell anyone "BYE" I have houses in two countries where I love to spend as much time as possible. I don't get riped-off in taxes in these countries. I feel like I have more freedom there as well. In about 480 days when the Redneck leaves the Whitehouse I will see if I want to leave here permanently.

In todays world this is one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard. Does she know how close she became to being shot to death. How stupid does one have to be, You
cant play this off as stupidity especially being a M.I.T. student. I can only hope she truly get what one only merits in this situation.

Pablo in comment #3 I think you hit it on the head she couldnt make it at MIT so being a dead artist certainly would give one more respect, since she has non now.
