    It would have been better police work had they put a 40cal bullet in his temple.

    Did you see his picture ?
    He'll probably get off, claiming "profiling".

    I vote for entrapment. I'm far from a lefty but if this were a typical local crime it would be thrown out of court.

    Here in Oregon, we call that good police work. They identified a nut, and now he's in jail and nobody is harmed. Nice work.

    so if the undercover police dont thwart an attempt at an attack, then what,poor intel....totally disagree with you..in order for law enforcement to work,you sometimes have to get in the gutter with the criminal element and play a con game to expose their plan...the police couldn't wait and see if this nut job's plan was successful

    great police work..you never know if he was just a mule carrying the load for a bigger organization, just too bad he didnt get tagged by bullet by the swat team

    NO, the crime would be stopped but if you look at history in the end the offender would get off. I'd rather a crime be thown out of court but foiled than actually happen and get a conviction. The question was whether or not it would be considered entrapment. Most likely it was, but at least it never happened.

    Now the TSA is going to ramp up efforts to scan or pat down all attendees at Christmas tree lightings.
