Terrorism at the Post Office

Sep 8, 2003

A bomb was brought into the main post office in Detroit last week.

How did the bomb get to the post office? A terrorist? Well–you decide!

A suspicious package was first found in a home on the west side of Detroit during an identity theft and mail fraud raid.

Instead of taking it to the usual place on Belle Isle where packages like this are inspected–a postal inspector brought it to the post office in the middle of the city and carried it right into the building, putting the lives of hundreds of postal employees at risk.

The object was then taken BACK out to be x-rayed. The x-rays confirmed that the package could indeed be dangerous.

Throughout the whole ordeal, before, during and even after the Bomb Squad arrived and detonated the object on a field behind the Post Office, management denied any danger to the postal workers inside. They issued statements with phrases like, "IF there was a bomb," and "IF it came into the building."

But it DID come into the building. And the Bomb Squad decided it could be dangerous enough to explode.

With fools like this abounding in management, the terrorists will have to take a back seat!
