...and a dobsonian terrorist tries to bomb members of the Westboro Baptist Church.
Mark David Uhl, 19, was arrested Monday night on charges of manufacturing an explosive device, Major Steve Hutcherson said. He said Uhl told a family member he had made bombs and planned to attend the funeral. The family member notified authorities.
Uhl was undoubtedly influenced by his religions upbringing and fundamentalist education - He was a student at Liberty University after all. Perhaps a secular education would have prevented this?
Note to Mark Uhl: I once read the life story of a famous Los Angeles detective called Jigsaw John. He said that most criminals are caught because they like to talk. Read books while you are in prison. It helps.
The weird thing is, when I was a kid, my friends and I would make these same homemade napalm explosive devices. We would use gasoline and detergent to fill old Christmas ornaments. Toilet paper served as the fuse. BB guns were used as the triggering device. The parking lot of the neighborhood school was our bombing range. The bulbs exploded and would burn for minutes (big flames, low boom). We stopped after the cops caught us. It was two cops versus five ten-year-old mini-bombers - I escaped punishment, my friends could not sit down for weeks.
