Here’s an interesting one….. went into the local shops tonight and was there to witness two very young (probably 8 & 10 yr olds) boys talking excitedly about how they were going to make a bomb and try to blow up the local school toilets.
After talking to someone on their mobile phone about the ingredients they would need they walked up to the counter with their flammable liquids and attempted to purchase them.
After I suggested to the proprietor that they may not want to sell these items to the youngsters (especially knowing what was going to be done with them), they were turned away.
If i hadn’t have been there i’m sure they would have been able to purchase the items – one was metho, one was ammonia and the other was a blue flammable liquid – not sure what it was. Just had visions of two little boys getting badly burnt.
When they were unable to purchase the items they tried hairspray and asked for paint!
They just wanted to blow something up. is there a law against selling items such as these to underage children such as there is for paint, knives, smokes etc? and where would a shop owner stand if serious damage was caused.
