How Many Security Failures Can You Spot In This Case?

Canada, I know you guys up north are known for being polite and all, but this is a little too nice: A kid in Canada walks through airport security with a pipe bomb in his bag, but the half dozen other security failures that go along with it are what is shocking to me. They start before he even got to the airport. (Full court transcript here)

1. Parenting Failure? - This kid is making functional pipe bombs to blow up sheds.

2. Weapons Safety Failure? - The kid was using gunpowder from bullets he stole from his mother's fiance, a law enforcement officer (whose weapons and ammunition presumably should have be secured somewhere).

3. Threat ID Failure? - The security screener at the airport tried to hand the kid back the pipe bomb because he didn't know what it was.

4. Arrest Failure? - The kid was allowed to continue on his flight to Mexico without delay.

5. Hazmat Failure? - The pipe bomb was "set aside" for FOUR days. The airport was never evacuated.

6. Criminal Justice System Failure? - Because on surveillance video he looked "surprised" when the pipe bomb was pulled out, it was determined that he wasn't trying to blow up a plane. He was given a one-year suspended sentence, a $100 fine and ordered to donate $500 to a burn unit.

Given *: He knows his client is a dumbass, and has stumbled his dumb ass into a potential world of shit.

Given *: He also knows (and knows the prosecution knows) that the evidence (which we both mention above) seems to indicate that Mr. Murphy is simply a dumbass, and not a terrorist.

Given *: The fact that the contract security people let the kid fly indicates that they did not know the thing was a bomb. This is embarrassing.

Given *: The 'contention' that the security people tried to give the bomb back to Mr. Murphy allows us to infer two more things... 1.
