Main Question or Discussion Point

I hope this is not the beginning of another Unibomber-type campaign.

Ore. bank blast kills police officer, bomb expert
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081213/ap_on_re_us/bank_bombing [Broken]

. . .
Hastings declined to describe the bomb in detail but indicated it was powerful.

A bank employee found the bomb in bushes outside the bank, and it exploded after officers took it inside.

Hastings said he did not know why the officers took the bomb inside.
. . .
I can't believe they took a bomb 'inside'! Unfortunately they were killed. Hopefully the police chief can shed light on the matter - unless he was part of the decision to take the bomb inside.

All I can say is be vigilant. If something looks out of place in your normal everyday environment - be careful.

I'm going to guess this has more to do with the current financial situation than anything else.

My thought as well.
