Pellets hit crowd in blast at flea marketI admire that this print reporter was able to report the 'WMD' (AKA firecracker) going off in the Londonderry flea market with a straight face, (actually I guess it was with straight type ... not that there's anything wrong with that.)
An Elizabethtown man was charged Saturday with possessing a weapon of mass destruction after police said he ignited a device filled with plastic pellets inside Saturday's Market in Londonderry Twp., hitting at least five people and causing alarm in the building.
The device looked like a plastic Easter egg with a firecracker inside, said Peggy Beckley, the market's vendor manager. She said the pellets, like those used for an air gun, were inside.
Beckley said she was startled by the loud sound and the pain of the plastic pellets hitting her.
"It sounded like a window shattering to me, but some people said it sounded like a gun going off," she said.
No one was taken to a hospital, Beckley said.
He was charged with possessing a weapon of mass destruction, risking a catastrophe, recklessly endangering another person, disorderly conduct and simple assault.
I especially admire that Liz Collin of a local CBS affiliate was able to report on the horror, Oh the horror I tell you, with a straight face, (there's definitely something wrong with that.):
Police say Camp did it right in front of two security guards working at the front entrance. No one was hurt but police say the plastic air-gun pellets hit five people.Do ya think they're aware that this charge is going to make a laughingstock of their local criminal justice system?
Camp is from Elizabethtown. He was released on $5,000 unsecured bail last night.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Jeebus have we lowered the bar. Dog nose Colon Powell* would have had even more non-existent WMDs for his dog and pony show before the UN 5 years ago today, if he'd just known a firecracker and harmless plastic pellets were WMDs!
And frankly I don't give a damn that he considers the "pre-Iraq U.N. speech a 'blot' on his record"
Happy 5th suckiversary Colon!
May you suffer the same fate as all the 3,954+ Americans and the one million+ Iraqis have from your lies.
*I didn't mistype his name, the only way anyone could be that full of $hit is that they would have to be a colon.
