Mercury Terror Threat Crushed

Justice has been served. Send it back to the kitchen! It tastes funny!

The man who was spotted on MTA surveillance cams pouring mercury onto the platform of the Pershing Square subway station just got slapped with a 90-day jail sentence and three years’ probation.

Armando Bustamante Miranda pleaded no contest. Guess he couldn’t afford a decent lawyer.

The crime? Releasing a harmful substance in a public area. The risk? None, unless someone was self-destructive enough to get down on all fours and lick the stuff up off the platform.

Does this mean we’ll see Rocketdyne, the city sewage department and, oh, everyone on this list spending 3 months in jail along with Armando? Just wonderin’.

  1. I don’t know which is scarier…the over reaction here over this stupid act or the clowns in Boston with their clown boards slapped around town as a marketing stunt. Either way it doesn’t bode well for the average intelligence barometer. Sad day for humanity when being reactionary overrules common sense.

  2. The best is how long it took for this over reaction to happen in this case. It was a slow news day a month after the mercury was spilled before the “news media” decided to drop this terrorism story on the world. The original LA Times report (the day after it happened) was no more than 100 words long.
