So, How's that War on Terror going?

Story from Yahoo News, via Orcinus:

A 27-year-old Austin man was arrested on Friday and charged with placing an unexploded bomb containing some 2,000 nails outside an abortion clinic in the state's capital.

The explosive device also included a propane tank and a mechanism "akin to a rocket," Austin Police Commander David Carter said.

The device was discovered on Wednesday in the parking lot of the Austin Women's Health Center, police said.

The Texas Joint Terrorism Task Force -- made up of federal, state and local law enforcement authorities -- arrested Paul Ross Evans, who authorities said was on parole for an unspecified crime.
Just casually curious as to when this guy gets his all-expense paid trip to Guantanamo Bay, with free waterboarding and kangaroo court trial military tribunal thrown in.

Nope, the story goes on to say about how this guy actually got some due process, like arraignment, bail hearing, presumption of innocence, that sort of thing. Guess he was too white and right-wing to be a terrorist.

Who comes up with this stuff?

It's funny to see what those erector sets produce.

good thing lego's didn't conjure up these types of uses.
