Mayor calls situation 'outrageous'
But Coakley, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and others said the statement offering an apology was not enough, and did not rule out criminal charges or a civil suit to recover the estimated hundreds of thousands of dollars it cost the city to respond to the bomb scares.
Menino told reporters he received a call from a Turner spokesperson about 9 p.m. but had not yet returned it. "I think the city deserves a call, not from a press person, but from somebody in the corporate structure of Turner," he said.
"I just think this is outrageous, what they've done ... It's all about corporate greed."
Outrageous is right. Now the terrorists know how stupid we are that we can't even tell the difference from something that had been around for two weeks and a "terror threat". And we have to always think of these impressionable little terrorists everyday as we contemplate our daily actions. If we don't stand strong against unreal enemies together the real enemies will see an advantage. And then what? A promotion for Ghost Rider turns into a real bomb... at the box office.
