Would be nice to adopt a SOP on all suspicious packages reported...call the bomb squad...deploy a robot arm of some type to gather the package and place it in a steel enforced box for further disposal.

We have had enough suspicious everythings over the years to be able to expeditiously move this item away from everyone and not cause major traffic headaches...treat all as potential bombs and use this procedure immediately...no hand wringing...no buildup of crowds...JUST DO IT.....all of this should take no more than one hour....

Not sure if there were 2 packages, but I'm pretty sure this happened at 7th and penn NW. Much activity between the FTC and the navy war memorial
