Doofus Of The Day #456

Today's award goes to the security staff at the McNamara Federal Building in Detroit.

Shocking new details about that explosive device found at the McNamara Federal Building in downtown Detroit. When the city's bomb squad was called in to take it away and detonate it, many assumed it was discovered that morning.

But FOX 2 has learned it was actually found on February 26 by an officer with the Federal Protective Service, the security agency that guards federal property across the country. But instead of calling police then, the employee stored the explosive in a locked room for three weeks. What's worse, we're told this employee's supervisors were aware of what was happening, and did nothing.

There's more at the link, including a video report on the incident.

So a security guard, and his superiors, are quite happy to store a suspicious object for weeks, in the very building they're supposed to protect? And it's found to contain explosives, at that?

Ye Gods and little fishes . . .
