    Is it the UBP/OBA or BIU/PLP secret report to win the next election. Better yet the day of the election we should all flip coins. When either party gets in they seem to forget about the people that put them there.

    Whatever it was I’m sure it wasn’t another phony/staged bullet in an envelope

    I really ike how its in Tupperware. I was expecting this ‘captured package put in a sealed container’ to be put in something more serious, like an ammo box or something dramatic looking.

    You’re kidding me. It doesn’t take much to spoke these authorities.

  11. UmJustSaying says:

    I get suspicious packages in my mailbox all the time, and I still have not met
    the suspicious people using it.

  12. Legal Eagle says:

    I don’t get it?? The package may have innocently come into his possession+if he thought it was suspicious,he quite properly brought it to the attention of the police! For that,he was put into police custody??-+some posters also want him charged?? For what? And what is the public supposed to do if they come into possession of something of genuine concern??

    • sage says:

      Exactly, these “reports” are so ridiculous,”today a male walked into the Southside Police Station and stated he was in possession of what is being described as a suspicious envelope” what does that even mean? “Uh hi, I am in possession of what you may later describe as a suspicious package, can I be arrested?”

    • um just saying says:

      All well and good for you to come to his defence Legal Eagle, but if this person has mental issues he may attempt to do something more drastic. If not jail, maybe he needs to be assessed at MAWI., to rule out anymental issues.
