  1. You do not know the details around the story, you are naive to think thet they saw an anonymous box and called the haz mat, they had serious reasons to believe it was harzardous material. better be safe than sorry.

  2. I wonder why the homeowner felt threatened? Was he expecting an attack? What made him feel important enough to assume it was a dangerous attack directed at him? Bombers don’t usually target random people…

  3. Didn’t the homeowner notice or look to see if it had a return address on it? Did they forget they ordered something online? Don’t you think these Hazmat people have better things to do on a Sun. Do your own investigating first.

  4. It is worth it to be cautious. Nobody would want to kick themselves when it’s too late. If only I would’ve called. Always best to err on the side of caution. The citizen acted responsibly.

  5. After looking at the video, thank god there wasn’t an explosive device because the police , fire and first aid were all to close to the scene.I don think yellow police tape will stop an explosion.

  6. So please tell me,if it was chas veshalom a bomb….how far do you think those cameras would’ve flown?? Uhuh,I mean the ones that those women are holding. What a world we live in!! Gotta get that pic! Send it to my sister in-law in Israel so she can see she’s not the only one that gets to see a “cheifetz cashud”! In fact over here the street gets closed for two hours!!
