  • Bomb Left in Lost & Found for 3 Weeks


    In what appears to be a major security breach, components for a live bomb were allowed to remain in the federal building in Detroit for three weeks before the bomb squad was called in to remove it.

    The Detroit Police Department bomb squad was finally called in March 18 to remove the device in the McNamara Federal Building, which houses the FBI, IRS and offices for Sen. Carl Levin. The pipe bomb device had apparently been discovered three weeks earlier by a building guard.

    "A contract guard apparently saw this package outside on Feb. 26th," according to David Wright, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 918, which represents the Federal Protective Service Employees.

    "Against all security protocols -- an unattended package should be treated with extreme caution -- he picked up that package and took it inside basically on the premise of 'lost and found' property. And apparently stored it. That was on Feb. 26. On March 18th, last Friday, someone got the idea to x-ray the package. At that point wires were seen... and it turned out to be a bomb."

    The contract security guard has been suspended and in the coming days a special training team will be deployed to Detroit to re-train the building's security personnel on proper protocol, according to Chris Ortman, spokesman for Federal Protective Service.

    Pipe bombs? Meh, in Detroit we've got bigger problems to worry about.
    There are basically two kinds of people in this world. Those that believe in the moon landing and those that don't.

        Some good police work...http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/03/24...ral-building/#
        Most important thing you and your partner do today is make off duty roll call.

        There are very few problems which cannot be solved by the suitable application of high explosives.

          Great police work....bad article.

          A. FPS does not guard Fed Buildings..... They oversee Contract Guards that do the guarding.....

          B. FPS's budget is in shambles and they are low on Inspectors. Their budget needs infused with money so they can hire more Inspectors to oversee Guard contracts around the US..... Of all people, Hill-Dawg got some order to them when she was a Senator (mainly because they are Unionized) but they are still a mess. Perhaps it will take a incident like this....or an device actually going off before someone pulls their head out of their assses and gets them up to par to protect Federal Buildings/property under their jurisdiction......

              WOW.... I think the FED's should really do more screening on the people the companies they use hire... how dumb do you have to be? You work in a federal building and find a strange un attended package, so you pick it up and bring it inside!!!!!

                  I don't work Detroit unless they are short handed, and I have never worked at the Macnamara federal building.
                  Though their numbers are many, as the grass upon the field, we will count them at the end of the day.
