Aqua Teen... Terrorists?

I'm glad you put this up here since I was going to be looking for the story. CNN ran a long segment about it while I was at the gym but there was no sound and reading the captions is more effort than it is worth.

[bull]"It's clear the intent was to get attention by causing fear and unrest that there was a bomb in that location," Assistant Attorney General John Grossman said at their arraignment.[/shit]

especially since it worked in other places, I am with turner on this one. I don't have a problem with officials being upset and pointing fingers but if they try to drag this out and get stuff out of it they are going to look like grade-A asses in the end.

"It is outrageous, in a post 9/11 world, that a company would use this type of marketing scheme," Mayor Thomas Menino said Wednesday.

Ugh, I hate how 9/11 has basically become an excuse nowadays.

Their only intent was to get people to watch the movie. The only people that should be in trouble is whoever made then look like bombs. Either way, any sane person knew what they were, and people should quit looking for things to call the police about. The terrorists are not going to use an American cartoon to bomb us.

I'm in advertising and while I'm on the side of Time Warner, I have to say that they also have a lot of resources. It wouldn't have been very difficult to notify authorities about the ad campaign. Look at Sony's PSP viral campaign. I haven't heard of anyone being arrested for damage to public property, because Sony took the right steps.
