Oh those zany M.I.T. students... let me tell ya...
19-year old MIT sophomore Star Simpson was arrested at gunpoint early today at Logan International Airport. She had a fake bomb strapped to her chest and later claimed it was artwork. Nigga, please.
The MIT genius had a computer circuit board and wiring in plain view over a black hoodie.
She said that it was a piece of art and she wanted to stand out on career day; she claims that it was just art, and that she was proud of the art and she wanted to display it. Oh, shut up.
The battery-powered rectangular device had nine flashing lights. Simpson also had Play-Doh in her hands when she was arrested.
The phrases "Socket to me" and "Course VI" were scrawled on the back of her sweatshirt. Course VI appears to be a reference to MIT's major of electrical engineering and computer science. Wooooo! Shout out to my boys in Course VI!
Simpson was charged with disturbing the peace and possessing a hoax device, and was to be arraigned in East Boston District Court later today.
Cops said Simpson was "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." hahahahaha! dolt!
She was arrested about 8 a.m. outside Terminal C, home to United Airlines, Jet Blue and other carriers.
A Port Authority staffer manning an info booth in the terminal became suspicious when Simpson, wearing the device, approached to ask about an incoming flight.
Simpson then walked outside, and the info booth attendant notified a nearby trooper.
The trooper, joined by others with submachine guns!!, confronted her at a traffic island in front of the terminal.
"She was immediately told to stop, to raise her hands and not to make any movement, so we could observe all her movements to see if she was trying to trip any type of device,"
Star Simpson (noun) : a person who is mentally retarded in general but who displays remarkable aptitude in some limited field (usually involving electrical engineering or computer science)
"Had she not followed the protocol, we might have used deadly force."
Pare said Simpson took a subway to the airport, but he was not sure if she had the device on at that time.
She told authorities she was at the airport to greet someone arriving on a flight from Oakland. Authorities verified information as to the name of the passenger she was greeting, and said he had already left the airport.
"She did seem a bit upset that she was in custody. However, she was rational, and she did answer all questions as required," some dude said.
I've met people like Star before; they are so smart, they are practically retarded. They think the dumbest shit is funny. For instance, this is her site, check it out.
Fun fact: Star pulled her brilliant stunt today at Logan International Airport... You may or may not recall, two of the four airplanes hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001, took off from Logan.
"In this day and age, the threat continues to be there," said a cop. "She certainly jeopardized her own safety by bringing this to the airport, as well as the safety of everybody around her."
You may also recall Boston was the focus of a major security scare in January when dozens of battery-powered devices were discovered in various locations. Bomb squads were deployed, and highways, bridges and some transit stations were temporarily closed. They turned out to be a promotion for Cartoon Network's retarded Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
