    adult swim gone terrorist

    First i wana kno if eny one heard of this? second if u have what do u think of what adult swim did in boston do u think they went to far or did the ppl of boston over react to the devices that they used. here is one of the articales from one of the papers around here.




    the scare forced bomb units to scramble across Boston all day. The "devices" were actually magnetic lights which resemble a character on the show "Aqua Teen Hunger Force", on Turner Broadcasting's Cartoon Network.

    WBZ spoke with the Berdvosky's lawyer and legal guardian Michael Rich, who said the Mass. College of Art student did cooperate with police. Rich also tells us the suspect is an exchange student from Belarus.

    "It's very disturbing," said Rich, "that what was just (an) employment for a struggling artist turned into some major misunderstanding."

    Berdvosky was apparently working for InterferenceInc.com, which was the company hired by Cartoon Network to carry out the ad campaign. He will be arraigned at Charlestown District Court on Thursday morning.

    The suspicious device reports forced the temporary shutdowns of Interstate 93 out of the city, a key inbound roadway, a bridge between Boston and Cambridge, and a portion of the Charles River but were quickly determined not to be explosive.

    "It's a hoax -- and it's not funny," Gov. Deval Patrick said.

    "We apologize to the citizens of Boston that part of a marketing campaign was mistaken for a public danger....We deeply regret the hardships experienced as a result of this incident," said Turner Broadcasting Chair and CEO Phil Kent in a writen statement.

    More Than ten devices were found in Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. Attorney General Martha Coakley believes 38 of the light up boards were planted throughout the city.

    The first device was found at an MBTA subway and bus station located under Interstate 93 on Wednesday morning. The device was detonated and determined to be harmless, but as a precaution the station and the interstate shut down temporarily.

    Then, around 1 p.m., four calls came into Boston Police reporting suspicious devices at the Boston University Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge, which both span the Charles River, and the corner of Stuart and Columbus Streets and at the Tufts-New England Medical Center.

    Another device was found in Somerville under the McGrath Highway Bridge. The latest package was found outside Fenway Park around 5:30 p.m.

    Mayor Menino said the hoax cost the state and cities about $750,000. He wants Turner Broadcasting to pay for it all.

    “It is outrageous, in a post 9/11 world, that a company would use this type of marketing scheme. I am prepared to take any and all legal action against Turner Broadcasting and its affiliates for any and all expenses incurred during the response to today’s incidents. Boston will look to coordinate our efforts going forward with Cambridge, Somerville and any other affected agencies.”

    "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" is a cartoon with a cultish following that airs as part of the Adult Swim late-night block of programs for adults on the Cartoon Network. A feature length film based on the show is slated for release March 23.

    The surreal series centers on a talking milkshake (Master Shake), fries (Frylock) and a meatball (Meatwad).

    The cartoon also includes two trouble-making, 1980s-graphic-like characters called "mooninites," named Ignignokt and Err -- who were pictured on the suspicious devices. They are known for making the obscene hand gesture depicted on the devices.

    It said the devices have been in place for two to three weeks in 10 cities: Boston; New York; Los Angeles; Chicago; Atlanta; Seattle; Portland, Ore.; Austin, Texas; San Francisco; and Philadelphia.

    They didn't even look anywhere near anything explosive. Goes to show you how dumb everyone has become after 9/11. Paranoia can stupify, and this proves it. Cartoon Network shoulda gave Boston a big "KISS MY ASS" instead of 2 mil. Pfft........This kinda crap is the reason I never plan on boarding an airplane. All I can say to the ppl who decide to trade our freedoms for security is , "Thanks a lot, you retards!!" and salute them with my middle fingers.
    My two and a half cents. May the hate PMs roll in.......

    Maybe its because they didn't realize it was happening and they asumed it was a "terrosit attack" people are so gullible to believe anything now. All thanks to Bush's fear tactic..>_>
