That boy ain’t right.
Was awaiting a discharge.
Was transfered to the med discharge unit in November.
non AP source to have a look at the suspect
Nice job laying the groundwork for an insanity defense in the mugshot.
When we were kids, we used to go to an empty field nearby and set off M-80 firecrackers under cans, tree-stumps, etc...
Some kids did it recently, and had Police, Fire Dept, and Homeland Security show up.
Fireworks charges or actual bombs? Tanerite would be considered ‘a bomb’ by too many leos.
Late 50s early 60s, my dad used to bring home a shopping bag full of M80s for Independence Day - in suburban Chicago. What a blast!
I think the pic is all we need. lol
See link at 5 for image on You Tube. Pic was AP which is a no no here.
Same kind of eyes like the crazy runaway bride...he must be on drugs/meds.
“Some kids did it recently, and had Police, Fire Dept, and Homeland Security show up.”
ATF has declared flash powder to be a “high explosive”, so that anyone with an M80 now possesses a “high explosive”, can can be charged with a felony.
You can make flash powder (it’s a binary mixture) and use it on your property but you cannot take it off your land, or store it overnight. At least according to federal law.
Your state may [probably] has different laws.
So when a kid is suspected of having an M80, ashcan, quarter stick, etc, the police look it up and the book tells them how to respond to an event involving high explosives.
“Why do you have 48 bombs in your car?”
“Because with the hatchback option I couldn’t fit 50, Officer.”
Then I saw his pick and thought ... "Yep ... Buggy as a swamp in July"
Perhaps this goes much deeper than we know, he may have been planning a visit to the White House and was found out a bit early.
not to be confused with the LA DA Vincent Bugliosi who convicted Charles Manson.
Manson and Family refered to him as “ the Bug”
Here is a local news article on the incident.
He’s 5’1” ?
The difference between high explosives and low explosives is that low explosives must be contained in order to explode.
Gun powder is a low explosive because if you just pour a trail of gunpowder in a line across a sidewalk and light it, the gunpowder will burn instead of explode...but if you wrap gunpowder inside a container such as for a firework, it will explode instead of simply burn.
In contrast, high explosives need no container in order to explode. C4 is a high explosive. Nitroglycerin is a high explosive.
The ATF doesn’t determine what is high or low...that’s the role of physics to decide.
If flash powder blows up without being in a container, then it is a high explosive. If not, then it is a low explosive.
Should have been a jockey.
That’s exactly what I noticed!
I guess so. I’m five inches taller than he is. I don’t know any women that short.
Bombs are definitely “arms.” That is 2Amd material. The 2nd does not make exceptions for unfavored types of arms, or for mental state, for that matter, or prior convictions or anything else..
Had enough of your BogusLawSkis!
Did I hear right, they said 43 years old?
Damn, boy didn’t age well.
“The ATF doesnt determine what is high or low”
In this case, they did. Check the regulations, it has nothing to do with physics. Their reasoning was, since flash powder is responsible for most explosives injuries, it “needed regulation” so they declared it to be HE, for the purposes of controlling it.
