OR: Aloha To Your Future!

I always thought that MIT was supposed to be filled with geniuses and whiz kids. Although, to be fair I guess that geniuses can still be nuts.

Star Simpson, artist extraordinaire!

Star Simpson, a 19 year old MIT Sophomore wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt was arrested at gunpoint at Logan International Airport outside Terminal ‘C’ with a fake bomb strapped across her chest. The (former?) swim team student said that it was a piece of art for career day. Quoting State Police Maj. Scott Pare, commanding officer at the Logan Intl.:

“She claims that it was just art, and that she was proud of the art and she wanted to display it.”

Pare went on to say that had Simpson not followed instructions during the arrest, she would be in a morgue instead of a cell. 

The “device” was described as having batteries connected to wires and a circuit board. Some reports go on to say that putty (later identified as Play-do) was also attached, others say that the Play-do was in Simpsons hands.

The MIT Swimming and Diving Team Sophomore had apparently walked into the airport with the “art” strapped to her minimal bosom, proceeded to the information desk where she asked about a passenger on an inbound flight from Oakland, then left the airport. Shortly thereafter she was discovered outside Terminal ‘C’ licking pavement and surrounded by police bearing automatic weapons.

    MIT? You have got to be kidding me. Are they letting in self-centered, self-righteous, brain-dead, brat idiots nowadays? Naive teeny-bopper bimbos who have no problems wasting other people’s time and energy deserve to be shot when they do. Stupid cunt.

    Anyone who shows up at a airport wearing an a device that is a bomb real or otherwise needs to be dead. If I was one of those cops, Ms. Star would be assuming room temperature right now.
    Too many lives have been destroyed at the hands of terrorists to have some snot nosed brain-dead moron go to an airport wearing a device that resembles an explosive device and then gets upset that the cops are arresting her.
    Either MIT has dropped its requirements to attend what I thought was a prestigious institution or Ms. Star is just a shining example how Americans don’t take terrorism seriously.
