Exploding flashlights!

You see an flashlight laying on the ground. Looks perfectly normal, you pick it up and whats the first thing you do? Why flick the switch to see if it works... BOOM

Quote:
Three of these bombs have exploded within the last month in the Phoenix area, causing minor injuries to five people and raising fears of more serious ones.

This calls for an immediate ban on all flashlights.

Perhaps even having to get a background check and waiting period to buy one. They must all have serial numbers and gps locators so when one is lost it can be found. Next will come a FCCL (flashlight concealed carry license). Of course you must be at least 18 to buy one.

Maybe we should just stick with Stone Bridge Folding Lanterns..... They use candles and you can see what's in them.

"Mangan said the agency has ruled out any connection to terrorism because the targets have been random and there have been no messages or demands"

local congresmen need to call fro this guy's resignation immediately. his understanding of terrorism is so 1970's, its dangerous. the style of attacks in mexico (beheadings, bodies hanging from bridges) is right out of al qaidas and hezbollahs playbook. with the proximity and the overflow of kidnappings and murders in his region, why make that instant assumption? these are the same sort that also don't consider the violent and destructive acts by groups like animal/earth liberation front a terrorist act. Only fat white guys in michigan who belong to a so called militia and believe the US government has long overstepped its constitutionally allowed boundaries can be terrorists.
fortunately so far it seems the explosives are low powered, and whoever is doing this doesnt have any C4 or semtex.

Next thing you know the ATF will be shipping flashlights down to Mexico.

Of course there will be a big fight in Congress over so called "Black" flashlights.

Weapons of mass illumination.

Its all part of Obama`s diabolical plan to further restrictions on the explosive materials used to make these devices.

You noticed that too. Be a good time to stock up on flashlights since you can't give them away right now.

I got a similar email from a friend on another railroad about a few of these being found in rail yards. Anyone snoped this yet?
