Oooh...the bogeyman terrorists are coming. What a joke. Now I really think this Government is using terrorism to install fear in us.

the first 2 comments dont make any sense to me at all. she is lucky that her head is still connected to the rest of her. why would you go into logan airport with a fake bomb strapped on? you are only asking for trouble.serious trouble. what if an ordinary citizen with a pistol permit was inside the airport and reacted badly to what he saw. she could be dead. and yes you can walk right into the airport with a pistol in your pants,its only when you head deeper into the airport that you see the metal detectors. it was stupid,reckless and it endangered the lives of other people. when cops start shooting,alot of bullets are consumed. when they get a chance to fire they empty clips. flying bullets from panicked cops mean trouble for those in the vicinity.
with no priors she'll get the wrist slap.she dosent need jail ,she needs to talk to a shrink about her decision to go bomb modeling through the airport.

Most Americans have come to understand we now live in a fascist police state and have adjusted their behavior accordingly.

However some young people still believe they are free.

Such naivete can get one killed.

Tazer anyone?

you ignorant little person.
do you think a 65 yr old woman knows what a bomb looks like? there are countless people out there that couldnt even draw you a picture of a bomb. strapping an apple to your chest would do nothing but make you look a little bit more stupid. if your head happenes to be blown off in the near future than someone wasted a good bullet. idiot!

And she goes to MIT??? She's an idiot. I'd be ashamed if I were her parents. All that money, and she does that in an airport. She should serve time, but she wont. If this is the future of America, we are surely doomed!

Don't you think this smart girl knew what she was doing? Of course she did. Why else would she have worn it to the airport. She knew it was going to cause problems. She got what she wanted as far as I'm concerned. From what i gather there are many ttypes of boms and if someone has a circuit board lighting up strapped to them, hummm what would you think? I wouldn't think wow that's art!!

It's not art. It's stupidity. If she knew what she was doing and the reaction it would get, she should have her "artsy" azz thrown in jail. Let her paint the walls there. That's art.
