    Oregon School Attack Thwarted

    Good work by whoever figured this one out in time to stop it.

    The bombs investigators found included pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, a Drano bomb and a napalm bomb, Haroldson said.
    The DA, however makes an inane statement

    The district attorney said it did not appear the teen was targeting a specific person or group of people.
    If a school, is not a specific group of people, I don't know what one is. It appears that this kid did in fact target this school.

    I didn't see anything about how they found out about his plans in the article but assuming he said something to somebody - thank God for people not being able to keep their lips zipped (in this case and similar ones).

    17-year-old Grant Acord will be charged as an adult with attempted aggravated murder and also faces six counts of manufacturing and possessing a destructive device after investigators found six bombs in a secret compartment in his bedroom, Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson said.

    Well that's a relief, I didn't want the government trying to tell me "you don't need two quarts of Drano to handle a clog."

    Good that they stopped this kid before he could carry out his plan. It makes you wonder how many more are out there working on bombs in their garages.

    My first reaction after "glad they stopped it before it got off the ground" was "glad he did not have any guns involved." As glad as I am that they stopped this before it happened, I sure don't want the government regulating everything that could be used to create a bomb. I am not comfortable that they will not try.
