Now THAT would be funny! [1]... someone "knowing the response protocol" 
puts a glass canister of a hearty airborne viral agent in a box, puts the 
appropriate "goodies" to make it LOOK like a bomb, and let's the local 
law-enforcement schmoes do the dirty work for them. No need to "die for the 
cause" by opening it yourself, you can be far upwind by the time the LEO's 
show up.


[1] Funny in a cynical sense. I'm not THAT sick in the head. :)
