"Suspicious White Powder" Found At 5 Superbowl Hotels

Tyler Durden's picture


While joking about potential terrorist plots is below us, the fact that New Jersey police are investigating the appearance of suspicious white powder at several hotels near the site of the Superbowl was too close to an "Onion" headline for us to ignore. As AP reports, the FBI is investigating the substance (found in envelopes - which we suspect were not marked with player's names). No injuries or overnight bouts of unexplained euphoria have been reported.


Via AP,

The FBI and other law enforcement are investigating a suspicious white powder that was mailed to at least five New Jersey hotels near the site of Sunday's Super Bowl.


Carlstadt Police Det. John Cleary says someone at an Econo Lodge found the substance in an envelope on Friday.


Cleary says similar mailings arrived at the Homestead Inn in East Rutherford and a Renaissance Inn in Rutherford. He says investigators intercepted additional envelopes from a mail truck before it reached a Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn in Carlstadt.


Hazardous materials teams are checking out the substance. The FBI says it is investigating and no injuries have been reported.

We hope this is not a replay of Washington's Anthrax issues but otherwise suggest NJ's blow-dealers consider other forms of delivery (e.g. McDonalds Happy Meal or Amazon Drone)

what a horrible case of bad luck.  if they only kept the music down and used just a wee little bit of self-restraint in exercising their private affairs...

everyone's got a dark side, or at least varying shades of gray (double puns (not) intended). he clearly had his own set of mental issues (demons you say?) and tried to deal with them in the only way he could understand how to best resolve.  BUT, i digress...  

sure, he broke some (asinine) drug laws, but why would a cop (who has his own darkside / shades of gray) be disappointed about some football player's extra-curricular activities?  he didn't murder anyone (as far as we know).  he didn't rape anyone (from any criminal or legal perspective). he didn't steal (as far as we know).  he didn't lie (except when trying to avoid punishment).

Well, they can't blame it on Bruce Ivins, he's been dead for quite some time.

Could it have been one of those three bankers who recently committed suicide?

The last one was from a subsidiary of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, whose historical majority shareholder has been the Rockefeller family.  Wonder if they still are?

And that other banker was with JPMorgan Chase.....


Speaking of white powder (Anthrax inference), a great book to read on that and questionable suicides is Bob Coen's Dead Silence (Coen and Nadler did some great investigative journalism on that one).

Absolutely. Because Americans are so easy to spook this is a great ploy. I knew people during the last Anthrax scare who were opening their mail with gloves and buying duct tape. When I told them this would be of no help (opening a letter full of anthrax properly weaponized would aerosolize so gloves are useless), they panicked and begged me what to do. I told them the proper PPE to handle anthrax and they actually wanted to purchase it! I damn near laughed myself under the table. Of course the joke is on me for not jumping in and making millions on such folly like many did before.

Hmmmm, certainly a mystery. Hotels booked with people that have enough disposable income to visit the NY/NJ area for a football game. And they are concerned with white powder? Just ask the local dealers to see if sales are affected by the weather.

I was just there for lunch (the strip mall next door has an indian buffet). That hotel is right next to the Federal Reserve building. Maybe they sent it to the wrong address. There were a bunch of cops and some huge RV with popouts called something like "East Rutherford Incident Response Unit". I bet they are just dying to get some use out of that huge waste of money. The next town over, Lyndhurst, has one of them that sits in the strip mall parking lot because I guess they don't have room in the police parking lot across the street. I don't think they used it once in the many years that they had it. I guess it's now obsolete and they should be getting another DHS grant to upgrade to the latest technology.

The funniest thing to me is that in this comical police-state of the US, one can do just about as well sending out "white powder" than actually doing some harm.

The gun and badge thugs and Gestapo (FBI) will just about shut everything down and quite often kill some innocent person.
