"In it's totality , it didn't add up," Nelson said. "He was on a trip for work and he didn't have to check any bags. Everything didn't seem right. It didn't pass the smoke test." The bomb squad arrived within ten minutes after the 7:45 p.m. call and after examining McGann's watch, found no explosive materials present, Nelson said.

"He had every component to make a trigger mechanism," Nelson said. "Was it? No. But was everything there? Yes."

McGann was arrested under a section in the state's penal code that says that "a person who possesses any substance, material, or any combination of substances or materials, with the intent to make any destructive device or any explosive without first obtaining a valid permit to make that destructive device or explosive, is guilty of a felony."

I get it, he was extremely suspicious and should have been temporarily detained and questioned - no problem. But to charge him with "the intent to make any destructive device" is unjust. They don't know his intent. In addition, I always travel for work - usually for 1 week at a time and I never check bags.
