So, this guy was upset. His name is Larry Eugene North and this is another reason not to name your child Larry Eugene.
An East Texas man who federal prosecutors allege left explosive devices including pipe bombs in multiple area mail boxes, was motivated in part by anger at the government, Brit Featherston, first assistant U. S. attorney for the Eastern District of Texas tells TPMmuckraker in a phone interview.
The AP, which reports that stories about explosives showing up in mail boxes began about a month ago, has more context:
The first reports of incendiary devices in mailboxes involved bottles containing flammable liquids and wicks, authorities said. Devices resembling pipe bombs then started turning up, which raised the sense of danger felt by 27-year-old Longview resident Robert Ziemba. One pipe bomb was found in a mailbox on a busy street in Longview.
Notice he didn't try to blow up any pies.
Jesus. Don't look it in the eyes.
