  1. Glad it was nothing and grateful to the officers who risked their lives to make that determination, but I wasn’t overly impressed with the K-9 officer. He looked much too quick to me. The Israelis are much more thorough when dealing with situations like this.

  2. to momma do you know how to handle a situation like this? are you an Israelis who knows? I think the LPD knows exactly what they are doing. they knew what they were doing at the shoprite plaza this afternoon, so don’t judge

  3. If they know what they’re doing, why don’t they have sappers or robots like they do in Israel? They weren’t wearing protective gear. What if it really was a bomb? By the time the Bomb Squad showed up all the cops and the dogs would’ve been blown to smithereens. One guy with a dog is not the way to handle a chefetz chashud.

  4. Wow what a shocker someone forgot/threw away their luggage at a bus terminal……How some people can make it threw their day when they assume every unattended bag/item is a bomb I’ll never know. If I had that outlook I could never leave home as I work somewhere with unattended personal belongings all day.

  5. Guess what News Flash! Not that we can’t have an explosive package, but this isn’t Israel. We are not living in the Middle East in one of the most volatile areas of the earth. And we don’t have Israelis and Palestinians running around trying to kill each other. I know they had a good handle on the situation and if they thought they need more bells and whistles, they would have brought them in. I didn’t know you were such an aficionado on these types of situations. Maybe you can even apply for a job with the state police as an advisor on these types of situations.
