See what happens when you don't give students a taste of Mr. Taser?

MIT student Star Simpson (yep, that's her real name) was arrested at Logan International Airport for wearing what police described as a fake bomb. Star's sweatshirt had on its back a computer circuit board with flashing lights and wires. She says it was a homemade art project. Link. Apparently Ms. Simpson is a flaky science geek who thinks nothing of wearing a blinking electronic device on her back into an airport to pick up a friend. State police Maj. Scott Pare said that Simpson is "extremely lucky she followed the instructions or deadly force would have been used. She's lucky to be in a cell as opposed to the morgue." Major Pare is our kinda cop. But where was the taser? Yes, Ms. Simpson was arrested and charged with a crime but certainly a good dose of Mr. Taser would have done this Star person a world of good. We are sure Andrew Meyer of the University of Florida gets the message after his jolt from Mr. Taser. We said it before and we'll say it again, Let's Taser All The Friggin Students!
