Wouldn't just running the luggage through a metal detector instead of pumping it full of lead be a better option?

Why does a security checkpoint dispose of suspect packages by shooting it three times? How is that going to safely dispose of the bomb? I hope they compensated her, it seems like they did not even ask her any questions about it before going Rambo.

I'd love to hear the call to Apple support...

Apple Tech: "Have you tried rebooting the machine?"

Macbook owner: "Uh, I don't think that's going to help."

I'm sure they took it outside and shot at it in a more open surrounding. Her fault in my opinion. They shouldn't have to replace it.

gendoikari1: If you suspect an item contains an IED (improvised explosive device), the safest thing to do is attempt to set it off at a safe distance. Usually, they just blow it up with a small charge of C4 or Semtex.

jmchien: Probably a Galil.

Others questioning why they shot it: As I said, the best way to deal with a suspicious package is to detonate it with a small charge of C4 or Semtex in a bomb-proof container (a detonation chamber). However, you can also shoot the suspicious page at a discrete distance. The shock from the bullet impacts has a high degree of probability of detonating an improvised explosive (an explosive is, by definition, unstable; and improvised explosives are even more so), and/or the detonator (which will then set off the explosive). Considering the on-going tension between Israel and their neighbors, this is probably a daily occurance.
