    I'm ready to do some beatings! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] I was woken up this morning at 5:30 a.m. to two HUGE back-to-back explosions that shook the house. Scared the crap outta me. I am so sick of this. Two kids arrested and STILL the explosions continue!

    Not only that, but 3 homemade explosive devices were found in a department store yesterday...two exploded and one didn't. It happened in a small town just outside of Richmond. A copy cat I'd guess. Luckily, even though people were in the store when they went off, nobody was hurt.

    What is wrong with kids today that they can't see that this kind of thing isn't a prank...its downright dangerous! People could get hurt...children could get hurt.

    Ha, told you it was pranksters (I also thought it could be aliens, but anyway...). When I was 15, I knew there were several kids in my school who made these bombs to blow up mailboxes. They were real simple to make, I think they used a 2liter soda bottle, some drain-o, something like that.

    I will say again...making and exploding bombs is NOT a prank. Its dangerous. Its stupid. Its self-centered. Its thoughtless. We'll see how much of a "prank" it is when a little 6 yr old from the elementary school finds one of those things, picks it up and has their hand blown off. It is a CRIME...its a FELONY. Not a prank!

    Bombs are not child's play. Every kid involved needs to be charged and tried as an adult since they are making adult explosive devices. The police have admitted that while they aren't "incendiary devices", they could cause damage and injury to anyone or thing close to them when they explode. And since you don't know where they are....who knows when or where...

    When I was a kid, it would never have occured to me to do such a thing. Even as little kid, I knew the difference between right and wrong and knew what could harm other people. I could not imagine thinking something like that was funny.

    I still think kids growing up on violent video games has a lot to do with it. Killing, bombs, shootings, arson, snipers--all just fun and games. Some people can't draw a clear line between reality and fantasy. Kids are learning to find pleasure in the suffering of others--its fun...its funny!

    All I can say is...karma...

    Well, I agree, this sounds like it's beyond 'prank' level.

    I'm 43 and remember my best friend in Mississippi shooting me with a shotgun in my backyard. I didn't know he had cut off the end of the shell and poured out all the shot. At least he tried to and nothing hit me. But who knows. That was in early high school and was a serious test for my potty training. It was stupid and could have been fatal and neither he nor I had ever seen a video game beyond Pong.

    Never underestimate the inability of adolescents to think of consequences. It strikes all of them some of the time. I look at my past and what I know friends, my father, and my grandfathers did and can only wonder what the hell were we all thinking. And we're relatively thoughtful people.

    I do know one guy who knows the recipie for C4 but he lives all the way out in C.A.

    A lot of kids know that this kind of thing is dangerous. All of my friends do, most of my school does. All of the faculty tells us that all the time, but what can i say, some kids, some people, are just strange.
