Just what do you say to a thing like this.....aside from: Thank you sir, you're under arrest!
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A man was arrested during the city’s sixth gun buyback event over the weekend after showing up at a drop-off
location with a homemade pipe bomb.
KNX1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports that the man wanted to turn in the explosive.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said the man “told the officers in the line that he had spoken to God that day, and God no longer wanted him
to use that bomb to blow up the Hollywood sign, now he wanted him to turn it
There are stories to make you go Hmmmm? There are stories to make you sigh deeply and shake your head. Then there are stories to just make you freeze
in mid step and say 'what the hell is happening out there?!'.
I think when someone goes to try and sell their homemade pipe bomb to Police at a gun
buy back? I hope they don't put him in jail. I really
don't. There are some innocent people in jail, awaiting trial after all. They did nothing to deserve that.
This ..ahem...Gentleman, needs a very long ..LOOONG..rest in a place like Atascadero. It's what folks used to call a hospital for the criminally
insane, among other things it serves as. I believe they may have an open bed just for him....in a nice clean room with soft walls and no pipes or
powder of any kind.
(shakes head) ...really. What are some people thinking??
