What were they thinking ?  :89:

 

An Australian man has been arrested with two young women after they allegedly wrote the word 'bombing' in a Philippines hotel room.

Jamie Allan Morgan, 48, is being held with Carmiel Pasco, 19, and Myla Tugbong, 20, after a housekeeper noticed the writing on a mirror at the Cebu Grand Hotel on Sunday.

A police officer said the group are being held on the charge of 'causing alarm and scandal', and that arresting officers at Fuente Police Station have filed a case against them.

Police were then notified at 2am, and an army bomb squad turned up to the hotel.

Nice that they got housekeeping in at 2AM.  Pretty good service.

Excellent point and it had me going for a while.  So I went back to the article and had a good look at the pics.  I can see the police going through the room while there is daylight coming in the window.  That does not happen at 2 AM in Philippines, (either the police showing up OR the daylight in the window),  so my conclusion is another journalist who screwed up AM and PM.

Bomb quip strands over 100 passengers at Dumaguete Airport

DUMAGUETE CITY—More than 100 passengers of a Manila-bound flight were stranded for four hours on Wednesday at the Dumaguete Domestic Airport after a fellow passenger allegedly made a bomb joke during the boarding process.

Police Chief Inspector Ruel Baganes, station chief of the Philippine National Police's Aviation Security Group (AVSEGROUP) here, told GMA News Online that the suspect is a 69-year-old clergyman.

GMA News Online is withholding his name due to a request from AVSEGROUP head Chief Superintendent Dionardo Carlos.

Baganes said the suspect was aboard Philippine Airlines (PAL) Flight 2546 scheduled to leave for Manila at around 11 a.m.

The commotion began when flight attendant Tejan Canoneo told the suspect to transfer his food package, which he put at a vacant seat beside him, at the designated space under his seat. He reportedly declined at first.

When Canoneo insisted that the clergyman should follow his instructions, the suspect reportedly snapped back, “Huwag kang mag-alala. Pagkain naman ito, hindi bomba.”

The flight attendant immediately reported the incident to his supervisor, who in turn reported it to the plane’s pilot. The pilot then notified the control tower at the Dumaguete Airport. AVSEGROUP officers and security personnel from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) immediately responded to the scene.

Passengers of the said PAL flight were then requested to deplane, as officers from the PNP Bomb Squad immediately searched the plane, which was eventually cleared from any threat of explosives.

The suspect, Canoneo, and the flight supervisor were then called to the AVSEGROUP station for questioning. As the investigation turned out, the clergyman did not make a bomb joke.

However, because he reportedly did not obey instructions given by an aircraft employee, the clergyman may face charges of violating provisions of Republic Act 9497 or the Civil Aviation Authority Act of 2008.

“That may have not been a bomb joke, but given our response to the incident, it can even be called a bomb threat,” Baganes said.

After a thorough inspection by the PNP Bomb Squad, passengers of Flight 2546 left the Dumaguete Airport at around 3:05 p.m., four hours later from their scheduled time of departure.

The suspect also managed to fly to Manila. However, he was accommodated in a different flight from PAL rival Cebu Pacific as a chance passenger.

While PAL’s local management declined to issue an affidavit on the incident, the airline’s legal department in Manila is considering filing the appropriate charges against the 69-year-old clergyman, Baganes said.

Authorities often take bomb jokes seriously as making them is considered a serious offense under Presidential Decree 1727.

Seems another 69 year old idiot made a bomb joke but was only kicked off the flight and it was decided that it was not serious enough to charge him with anything.  Not sure if he is a foreigner as he is identified only as "JR"

 You know we may joke and think this is lighthearted BUT do none of you realise the amount of time and money wasted by this stupid joke thing about Bombs. It is NOT funny and as a Former member of the RAF bomb Squad (In my later years in the service) It is not funny and in the UK it is Imprisonable. In this day and age anyone that thinks it is funny needs some serious teaching. :508:

I like how at the end of the article it's says "not sure if he is a foreigner as he is identified as JR". Midway in the article it's stated that JR spoke Filipino. This "hate foreigner" sentiment is becoming stronger lately. Too bad.

Amazing. How many times over the years have I heard let's go Boom Boom or we go Boom Boom back in my room on the Videokes or Bars here. Could saying that land one in jail also since it's closely related?  Perhaps the girl couldn't spell and she meant boombooming but spelled it wrong..
