Grow up and recognise that the freedom to make foolish remarks is important and worth defending.
If anything had happened....whoosh!!!.... the point you're missing is there was never any danger of this person 'doing anything' - he was not making a serious threat to blow up the airport, he was sharing his frustration in a way that we all understand. He had not made any attempt to fulfill his threat. He did not have either the intent or the means to fulfill his threat. His tweet was not a communication directed to the airport - it was sent to his followers which probably didn't include the airport.
If because a tiny minority of people want to damage our way of life by blowing things up, we are required to live under continual police and security scrutiny and mustn't make a silly remark now and then, well, the terrorists' work is done for them - we have destroyed our own way of life and our own freedoms. It might seem a big conclusion from a small premise, but really, living where we do, the right to come and go and say what we like is the crux of it all.

I bought a Lexmark colour laser for about 2-3 hundred quid 18 months ago and the output is great. Economical to run too. Pity you couldn't find space to include one in the pack test.
Had a couple of Epson colour acculasers and by contrast they are expensive, temperamental and I won't have one again
the first HDD I bought in 1985 cost £100 with the controller installation costing another £100, to put a stunning 10 megabytes on my system.
It could take every single item of commercially available software for the operating system I was using and leave 4 megabytes free for my novel.
Mind you, for a few weeks, I felt like I ruled the universe
what turned out to be a cracked disc into a dvd drive. It spun up and kept spinning faster until there was a bang like a gunshot, the disc was turned to tiny pieces and dust.
Everything except the finest dust was contained by the drive door. No component of the drive detatched. This wasn't a laptop and I didn't try finding out if the drive would read anything afterwards, but it's hard for me to imagine the door failing to contain any component of the drive unless the disc wasn't inserted correctly.
Who wants to volunteer to reproduce the circumstances of the alleged incident?
to get some laffs at her imbecilic explanation, but found it close enough to what I made of the film.
However, despite having been able to reach such an interpretation of this complex film some forty years ago I remain at a loss to understand why you have headed it under 'policing'.
el reg commentards can't work out how the accident happened from the story is utterly irrelevant.
this is a story in an online it journal, not an accident investigation report to the nz coroner (who you should approach for more detailed information).
jeez i'm glad i don't work with summa youse guys
