We sure have a lot of brilliant people in this world. People and reporters who spoke regarding the Boston bombing taught the public how to build a bomb on television.

Detective Mark Fuhrman said, “Anyone can build a bomb. All you have to do is go to Home Depot or anywhere they sell nails, nuts and bolts and other small metal parts, mix them all together with other materials and you got a bomb.” Another smart person said, “You glue all these small metal parts along the walls of a pressure cooker.” And others gave their opinions.

There was even a drawing on television of a pressure cooker with a wire or wires coming out connected to a timer.

Where is the common sense in all this? Don’t they realize that there are a lot of crazy people in this world? And also children that are curious and like to toy around and explore, and may try to build a bomb and hurt themselves or others?

It’s good and nothing wrong in reporting and talking about it, but not to go into detail on how to build a bomb.
