Bomb squad follies part deux: Mayor McLin and the porcelain pig

It was years ago when City Commissioner Idotha Bootsie Neal came out to her city-supplied car, thought someone had tampered with it, drove to City Hall, and then called the bomb squad, forcing the evacuation of City Hall.

Now, we have the Mayor, sending her “aide” (who I’m assuming is on the public payroll) to her vacant business to “pick up mail.” Excuse me? Is that why a part-time Mayor, needs a full time aide?

From WHIO-TV:

DAYTON, Ohio — Dayton police call for assistance of the Dayton Bomb Squad when a suspicious package shows up at the former McLin Funeral Home.

Police along with the Dayton Bomb Squad responded to the 1100 block of Germantown Street.

An aide for the mayor found a towel inside the mailbox with something wrapped inside.

Lt. Bob Chabali, from the Dayton Police Department, said the incident was unusual and so they took extra precaution.

The bomb squad did use a robot to check the suspicious package out.

Police said the suspicious package was simply a porcelain pig wrapped inside a towel and no detonation was needed.

Maybe we wouldn’t need staff cuts if the Mayor actually picked up her own mail. I hate to tell you how much it costs the City for a bomb squad run.
