    "josh" said: "and they simply followed protocol. The article gives no reason, good or bad, for shooting the laptop. Since security instructed her to leave it where she left it, as a fellow security worker, I assume they shot it simply to teach her a lesson about attitude. Just the same as this person: http://bit.ly/55I2fZ Her account; http://bit.ly/792FTn I work in security. You can put a bomb in anything! But NO ONE SHOOTS A BOMB EXCEPT SOMEONE WHO WANTS IT TO GO OFF! Think it through. They shoot the laptop but let her keep her data? Well that means they don't think she was spying. They knew the laptop wasn't a bomb or they wouldn't have shot it. What does this leave? Simple, when you are being asked questions by us, shut up and be cooperative. We have enough to do without dealing with lousy attitudes and obstructionism. We can do this all day long. so learn the lesson well. Be cooperative and respectful. Then maybe we can actually look for terrorists.
