IIRC, SOP is to leave the device inside the x-ray to contain an explosion to the immediate area.

If there's anything to complain about, it's the x-ray device's inability to discern between what's real and what's fake.
This incident simply serves to underscore how ineffective and stupid the TSA is.

The x-ray told the drone that there was a suspicious shape. Wow. Something that was shaped like a grenade caught the attention of the drone.

Meanwhile, plastic explosives can be taken past the checkpoint at will. They're malleable ! Put the bomb in your pants, have a nice day.

Kip Hawley is an Idiot and the TSA should be destroyed.
