Any indication of what this model citizen was going to do with all those explosives?

There is nothing but rumor right now, it will probably be a while before more details are public.

Methinks Blast is suffering "Blast Envy". The cops got to blow something up and got paid for it. Admit it Blast, you read the article and called to see if they take volunteers.

Here's my favorite part of the article:

"Some pedestrians, unable to reach their vehicles at a lot adjacent to the robot, decided to wait it out at a bar on 20th Street, asking uniformed officers to let them know when the road reopened."

To which the nice policeman probably replied, "No problem guys, I enjoy hitting my DWI quota so early in the month."

Well, he's already wanted in connection with a couple of bank robberies.

It could be for an attempt to break into something heavier (Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch? grin), or it could be political. There's a county court house, a bunch of military bases, and general whatnot in the area eek. I kinda doubt he went through all that trouble just to blow up his gardner.

Here's what the man's own lawyer says:

Is that how lawyers typically defend their clients over there in the UK? That guy needs new representation.

I've seen lawyers use that tactic used in the middle and far east to reduce the culpability of the their clients. I've never seen "Don't blame him, he's an idiot" used in an english speaking country. If that happened here, the lawyer would have been saying that the police overreacted.

On the other hand, maybe his client really is a hot tempered #$%^& and the lawyer's trying to keep him away from the media.

I'm pretty sure that is the motivation of those bomb squad people. With the current level of paranoia they can pretty much blow up ANYTHING "just to be safe".

It would actually be fun were it not for the fact that each time they do that they just add to the paranoia...
