Bank Blast Preventable 

Sounds like Darwin's' theory was definitely at work there. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of - cops bring the bomb (or "suspicious device")

Sounds like Darwin's' theory was definitely at work there. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of - cops bring the bomb (or "suspicious device") into the bank and employees are still in the building?

What f***ing idiots! Any 3rd grader knows you don't just pick the (thing) up and carry it somewhere. But these retards not only do that, but bring it into an occupied building. And who cares if the employees were in the back room; give me a break!

Where's the common sense news analysis about the dumbness of the police actions? Too afraid you'll hurt someone's feelings to delve right into that outrageous and newsworthy issue? That's the meat of the story and it's much more newsworthy than identifying the amateurs (probably teenagers) who made the thing and left it in the bushes. Dumb teens, but shockingly dumb cops.

Editor's note: Police have arrested and charged 32-year-old Salem resident Joshua Abraham Turnidge and his father Turnidge with crimes related to the bank blast. According to investigators, Joshua Turnidge amassed some of the supplies needed to make a bomb a month ago in Bend. A recent Oregonian story also stated that the bank had been evacuated before the device was brought inside the building.
