Bomb Found in Hughes

By che - 27 June 2008 27

Workplaces and streets around Hughes and southern parts of Deakin have just been evacuated due to the finding of a bomb in Hughes.
Maybe someone wanted to get to the pub a bit earlier, either way if you drive through that part of town, probably best to take an alternate route.

What’s Your opinion?

So when is it not a crime to have a dangerous explosive device at your home ? – it is not a crime to have a dangerous explosive device at your home when it is not a registered explosive device on the registered explosive device list.

Most (old world terminology) TnT equivalent ‘devices’ are not registered explosives on account of them being for industrial purposes and therefore not requiring registration.

Before you ask the silly question, try telling a mining company that they must account for every gram of glycerin they interact with and you will get a polite response that begins with f and ends with uck off.

BTW, I could explode your house in about 10 mins, give me 30 mins if you want it completely razed (inc. fireball and enough power to knock over walls), without any illegal substances being used, for under $25 from Woolies.

Then again, 30 mins with a sledgehammer and a brick clad house of modern Canberra design, I’d be confident of having a hole big enough to put a (*ahem* baby bonus) plasma telly in all 4 sides of a standard house.

Me & my stepson regularly have farting competitions, that could easily escalate into something a bit messy!

“The police say its not associated with any criminal activity.”
So when is it not a crime to have a dangerous explosive device at your home ?

My XD broke down on a traffic island in Hughes last night – they could have just towed it, not evacuated the whole damn suburb!

Bagdad mark II? Oh, I get it, along with all the shootings and other bombs that regularly go off?

“Kaboom! It should have gone off with an earth shattering kaboom”

I knew I could rely on RA to have this posted! I heard on the grapevine that people have been evacuated from the suburb from as early as 3pm this afternoon and that the police are in the process of disposing of the .. bomb. All hearsay though mind you. Who would have thought Canberra would become Baghdad mark II!
