He said "bomb", that's what. The airport is not the place to be a smart-a**, and TSA agents are not going to try and discern context or intent. If they hear the word, you're not making your flight and you will wear handcuffs.
Saying a word isnt illegal. The word Bomb isnt any more illegal than the word f**k or f*ggot. Its a word and you cannot get arrested for a word. Freedom of speech bro.
Oh well look here. The word f**k and f*ggot are censored...but the word Bomb isnt...Hmmmmm
Freedom of Speech is not what the First Amendment actually says.
"Perhaps more than any other part of the Constitution, the First Amendment right of "free speech" gets cited by Americans.
From an eighth-grader suspended for recording a song about why his teacher should be dead to the gay community members whose parade has been rerouted, the chorus sounds the same: "My right to free speech is being violated."
The problem with that is: The Constitution doesn't guarantee you "free speech."
Despite what many seem to believe, the "freedom of speech" guarantee in the Constitution doesn't give you the right to say anything you want, anywhere you want.
The First Amendment makes it unconstitutional for government to suppress speech (and "expression" as it has come to include). That's it.
There are numerous exceptions to that, well beyond just the popular citation of the "yelling fire in a crowded theater" kind of speech that is prohibited. Under the Constitution, the courts allow for many types of dangerous speech to be regulated or banned by law.
Child pornography, defamation and inciting crimes are just a few examples of speech that has been determined to be illegal under the U.S. Constitution."
