Severed gas line found at home of Perriello brother
daily progress ^ | 3/24/10 | Brian McNeill

Posted on 03/24/2010 3:27:13 PM PDT by Nachum

Updated: 4:55 p.m. U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello’s brother received a threatening letter in the mail on the same day that someone apparently severed a gas line at the home in Ivy.

Two conservative Tea Party activists posted the address of the home on the Internet on Monday, mistakenly believing it was the home of the congressman. One of the activists urged others to “drop by” and “express their thanks” for Perriello’s vote in favor of health care reform.

Tuesday evening, Perriello’s brother’s family smelled gas and discovered the propane line of a gas-powered grill on their screened-in porch had been slashed.

Seems like Obambi & Company want to pull off a series of mini “Reichstag fires” as an excuse for another power grab

That’s what I was thinking...this was probably more of a threat for the congressman to stay in line with the party, than for opposition threatening him.

So, the “severed gas line” was in fact the feeder hose from a propane canister inside an enclosed porch, not a natural gas pipeline as the media has been leading one to believe with their over hype.

Yeah, he smelled gas? Wouldn’t the propane have had to be turned on for the cutting of the hose to cause a release of gas? Why was it on?

‘spose the wife could have moved the grill and pulled the hose in half, or sliced it on something...

Boy this is a stretch, ain’t it?!

So far, all of the noise about tea party folks have all been discredited and in some casses proved to be done by sieu, or some other agent of the socialist, facist left!

Seriously? a bbq grill might have had a defective part? I thought it was to his house. I’ve gone through many grill part in my day and I never thought to blame a group of leftists.. i might have been able to get something for free.

He did it himself or some Union Thug. I don’t think Tea Party people would do this or even think of it. If it come down to violence—the right wing will not do things like this! Think Panzefaust not Weatherman Underground bombs.

Don’t those gas grills use a hose with woven wire in them to prevent a gas line rupture? something just doesn’t “smell” right here!

It does, but not nearly as strong as natural gas. If it was a 30 lb. gas grill canister, I'm guessing it would have all leaked out within 10 minutes or so, depending on how full the tank was.

"Why would you sever it when you can just unscrew it?"

.....and watch the contents totally empty in mere seconds, making it pretty much non-lethal unless:

#1. you were next going to club the owner over the head with the empty tank,

#2....or stand in the bushes and laugh hysterically as he has to go somewhere and purchase a fresh tank with his wife screaming at him loud enough for the neighbors to hear that he's "holding up dinner", and "I thought you said you checked the tank!!".

The Tea Party and 912 people I know would not do anything like that and I think if they knew who did it, they would turn them in.

No, but one is added so that you know if you have a leak. A propane leak is more dangerous than natural gas too due to the high pressure and wider combustible range.

Even O’Reilley was jumping on this bandwagon - and saying these tea party people must stop. Meanwhile does anyone remember the ACORN supporter who was running around with the Obama is Hitler poster - an agent provocateur, caught and admitted. The media is teeing off on this and it is like Soviet propaganda. Created to make a story to dishonor a political opponent.

Also - during the Iraq war - the media reported the War protesters as the salt of the Earth, and the media never showed these vile people making horrible statements. Thousands of Bush Hitler posters yet no complaints. Typical hypocrisy.

I find that curious, I wonder what brand it is.

My Aunt had the same thing happen with her old gas grill and worried kids had come into her backyard and done it.

I thought that a bit odd, why would kids do such a thing.

I wonder if there’s a brand of gas grill that has an issue with the gas lines?

Unscrewing it from the canister would not release the gas. Unscrewing it from the fitting to the burners would require time and a wrench. Slashing the feeder hose with a razor knife and turning on the canister valve would release the gas.

I bet it was a set up.

“Clinton cemented a second term after the Oklahoma City bombing and using the media to portray it as the fault of Republicans.”

We are not the same gullible nation we were then. The Dems are going to have to find another Country (Mexico perhaps?) to destroy .... we’re onto their “social justice” ways.

I want to throw up every time I hear them speak about helping the poor. (lazy asses that won’t work and illegals) They are nothing but control freakin liars.

IMO, if the Commie B@stard in the WH was so concerned with the needed why did he change how much we could deduct to charities on our tax forms? He does not want churches or everyday good Samaritans helping the needy-he wants them DEPENDENT on the government.
