Teen allowed to fly from airport after pipe bomb seized

"I’ll be taking that sonny! Now move along. Don’t want to hold up the line...
Kids these days!"
This crazy story demonstrates two things - that the security apparatus is pure theatre, and that most people, potentially including the security officials themselves, are weary of the entire production.
A teenager was able to carry a pipe bomb into an airport in Canada whereupon it was detected and confiscated by the airport scanners. He was then allowed to get on the plane, and was later arrested when he returned from vacation. It was revealed the guard who initially found the device handed it back to the teenager, who refused it, saying "You can keep it."
Nothing screams potential false flag event better than a young person being encouraged to take a pipe bomb on a commercial flight.
The Canada Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) is struggling to explain the lapse.
The CBC reported on the teenager, identified as Skylar Murphy, 18:
Murphy, in a text reply to CBC News, said, "I’ve been advised not to comment. I will however tell you that what has been published is not at all an accurate portrayal of what happened."
Normally random and harmless items can get you flagged at the airport - things like t-shirts, toys, and cupcakes. But when a potentially real threat is encountered, not only are standard operating procedures not followed at the screening area, the ’terrorists’ we’re all warned about 24/7 are let on the plane anyway.
The constantly shifting priorities and lack of common sense (not to mention the incredible personal violations and outrageous money involved) is what makes the security theatre of travel so ludicrous and unacceptable.

Teen allowed to fly from Edmonton airport after pipe bomb seized
By Arthur Weinreb | DigitalJournal.com
After a pipe bomb was discovered in his carry-on bag, an 18-year-old was allowed to board a plane and fly to Mexico. Screeners have been disciplined and many are puzzled how this could have happened.
The incident occurred last Sept. 20 when Skylar Vincent Murphy,18, was at the Edmonton International Airport. He and is family were flying to Mexico for a week-long vacation.
When Murphy’s carry-on bag was X-rayed and searched, a pipe bomb was found. It was described as a pipe with black powder and a fuse. Although it may have been confiscated, CBC and the Edmonton Journal reported the screener offered to allow Murphy to take the object on the plane but he said he did not want it back.
Four days later, members of the Canada Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) reported to the matter to the RCMP. When Murphy landed back in Edmonton on Sept. 27, he was arrested after he left the plane and charged with one count of possession of an explosive device.
On Dec. 5, the 18-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge. He was fined $100 and placed on probation for a period of one year. He was also ordered to make a $500 donation to the University of Alberta burn unit. According to the teen, he and a friend made the device with the intention of blowing it up in an empty field but never got around to it. He had forgotten the pipe bomb was in the bag when he went to the airport.
In an email to CBC, Mathieu Larocque, a spokesman for CATSA said, "Screening officers do not have the authority to apprehend or detain passengers. When they see something potentially illegal, they contact the police." Larocque did not address the issue of why CATSA waited four days before contacting the RCMP who are present at Edmonton International Airport.
