Hoboken man arrested for shoe bomb threat

Thomas Foley III arrested at Newark Airport for “Shoe Bomb Threat”

The Asbury Park Press reported today that two men were arrested at Newark Airport on allegations of making “Shoe Bomb” threats. One of them was from Hoboken: Thomas Foley, III.

My guess is that they were in no way serious – but were “joking” about the frustrating and ridiculous “security” at our airports. As a result, they got their liberties temporarily taken away. Oh well!

“Authorities say an Israeli citizen and a northern New Jersey man made false bomb threats during separate incidents at Newark Liberty International airport. The Star-Ledger of Newark reports the first incident occurred just before 10 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say 44-year-old Evan Hess of Tel Aviv became angry upon learning there were no available seats on his connecting flight, even though his checked bag was loaded onto the plane. He then allegedly claimed his bag had a bomb in it.

Hess left the area before police arrived, but was soon found in another terminal and arrested.

In the other incident Sunday, 35-year-old Thomas Foley III of Hoboken allegedly stated at a checkpoint that he had a bomb in his shoe.

Both men were charged with making a false public alarm.”

Maybe a little too much Hot Sauce on St. Patrick’s Day?

I’m in my 30’s as an ex-resident of Britain, and my friends here in the U.S. do not understand what is happening. I’m starting to freak out, can anyone help me? I don’t think there is a single safe place on planet earth anymore. I just want to live a happy, long life with people I love. It appears that will not be possible in America in the coming future.

Doesn’t matter how frustrating the law is, you need to obey those with the ability to arrest you! Don’t you know why they’re taking your guns away now? Step in line you disobedient idiot! Haha!

I’d speak my mind (constitutional right) at an airport too. So painful to fly, and expect a good number of passengers to lose their patience. Such a huge waste of tax money. Meanwhile crime is up everywhere else.

It’s not a constitutional right to yell ‘fire’ in a theatre, and it sure as hell isn’t a constitutional right to make a bomb threat, no matter how frustrated you are. ❗ [quote comment=”219918″]I’d speak my mind (constitutional right) at an airport too.
