Police are investigating who left four "bottle bombs" in the parking lot of a Sherwood middle school.
Police were called at 11 a.m. Wednesday to Laurel Ridge High School, 21416 S.W. Copper Terrace, to a report of suspicious plastic bottles in the parking lot. The bottles were partially filled with a liquid and aluminum foil.
After the area was cordoned off, the Metro Explosive Disposal Unit responded to investigate the bottles and determined they were makeshift explosives commonly referred to as "bottle bombs," police said.

Terrible. Idiot kids (probably) make these things. Then someone or some thing gets hit with a spray of Hydrochloric acid when it goes off. Very hazardous.
Apparently the definition of explosives is being broadened to include the air popping a balloon.
I was thinking the same thing. At one time, “explosion” meant a burning of a substance that had a burn rate that exceeded the speed of sound.
What a bunch of weenies we have become.
For those who have never been there, Sherwood is a really nice town in the Oregon wine country.
Lye, water, aluminum foil, and a 2 liter bottle.
NOT an explosive.
Dear God, we have become a nation of imbeciles.
We need to ban baking soda and vinegar too.
We are a nation of imbeciles, spiritual imbeciles.
Our rescue is in God that a lot of people make it sound a lot harder than it really is to come to reconciliation with.
Now you have to deal with your sin before you can help others deal with their sins.
OK, you’re a sinner. You know you’ve sinned. So what do you do, give God a penance offering and then hope He will forgive you on account of it?
Balderdash. Just STOP, and go to the arms of the Lord. Tell Him you have a sin problem and need help so that He will be glorified. Offer Him the whole stinking mess if you’ve “bombed” (to carry on the theme here). You need no penance offering. Jesus furnished that.
He will. Always. He promises.
For sure! Why, with the addition of red food coloring it made an acceptable “lava” for many a science-fair volcano. Some truly dangerous stuff there!
So, what’s next? Is passing gas now considered igniting an explosive? Would one’s butt qualify as an IED in that case?
its not any different than those little plastic rockets they used to sell to set off into the air....
been there many times....
they have great farms and orchards...very green...
too bad the lunatic weirdos of Portland ruin the whole state...
Did they send in a SWAT team with a bomb disposal expert?
Eugene would be offended that you left them out.
