al-Qaeda Did Not Visit Harmon Park

From the Update: ‘HOAX BOMB’ — A Parks Department employee discovered an object resembling a pipe bomb this morning at Harmon Park in Decatur, Police Chief Rex Hoskins said.The object was taken to the police station, and the Denton Bomb Squad was called in. The squad detonated the explosive and classified it as a “hoax bomb.” “This was either an attempt to make one, or somebody wanting it to look like a pipe bomb,” Hoskins said. Question: You have something that looks like a bomb so you move it to another location and then have the bomb squad take a look at it?

If you've had much experience with pipe bombs (I have) then you can tell relatively easily what might be dangerous and what isn't. I'm not classically trained with explosives and trust those that are knew what they were doing. I have been around them (no, I'm not a terrorist) and still have all my fingers, toes, nose, ears, etc.
Have a little faith people.

flyfishin, I'm sure glad I don't work with you on a bomb squad or at the PD. You never pick up a hoax bomb, real pipe bomb or any other explosive device. Much less put it on your car and drive it to the PD to have it looked at!!! Better yet the next time we have a live ordinance we'll call you to run out there and handle it, it'll be no big loss.

Hey guys chill, remember we are still a hick town. A tiger doesn't change its stripes. Gomer was just doing his job and wanted to show Andy want he found. It's a good thing Barney didn't find it because he would have called the FBI.
