    Man shot by Utah officer had explosive device

    Wires running from backpack to hand held detonator. Police shot and killed him. Turns out it was a real device. The crazies are getting crazier.

    I think the crazies are the same amount of crazy, it's just easier for them to learn how to make bombs and get bath salts thanks to the internet.

    Explosives are easy to make or get. It's the blasting caps that are hard. Straight up "suicide by cop".

    (BTW, anyone else annoyed about that simple "West Jordan"? "West Jordan, Utah" blast it! Otherwise it's going to be "Oh, he is from the middle east?")

    Yup. Sounds like suicide to me.

    Are we conspiracy kooks if we believe that the reporter meant to leave that impression on the reader?

    Great goobs of goose-poop.....!?! Crazy is a correct assumption me thinks. Suicide does seem to be the underlying reason. I'm intrested in what the investigation into this yahoo turns up.

    Yep, sounds pretty straight forward suicide by cop. Time will tell as more information becomes available.

    Lucky for all that he did not have a dead man detonater on his device. I hope that this is not the start of a new trend here in the USA.

    You know, if these people are willing to use State employees to help them commit suicide, I'd rather it be a doctor who can do it easily and painlessly.

    Seems they dont' know if there were explosives or not, since they detonated the backpack and are examing the pieces to see "IF " there were explosives.

    However, whether there is or isn't, the officer was justified in shooting him from what it says.

    He might have. But try to figure out where something happened when you follow a link from Drudge; few papers tell you what state as they all assume the readers are locals.

    Is there any question about what this guy was expecting?!? If a guy's got a chainsaw, I suspect he's cutting firewood. If a guy's got a guitar, I suspect he might be a musician. If he's got a hand detonator wired to a backpack, it's not unreasonable to believe that he's decided to make a greasy spot of himself & any/everyone with whom he can snuggle. He already planned to die, the police just help him go it alone.
