"He grabbed the grenade and dangled it outside the window of his sport utility vehicle as he drove away from the apartment complex"

Dad needs to take lessons from kids. don't touch, if you must touch put it in water. Under no circumstances dangle hand grenade from window and go for a ride.

say who insures this guy? His rates need to go up!

Have the police arrested this demented individual for endangering the pubic safety by driving his POV with a live bomb hanging out the window?

"We told him he could find jewelry and things like that, but he couldn't play with bombs," Chris Mathis said.

Chris Mathis needs to be placed under arrest and tested for mental competency before he is allowed to walk the streets alone. He is not playing with a full deck and is a danger to society,
The next time someone will probably die. Unfortunately the word is out, it is on file, the lawyers know, and the town will pay dearly if he is not incarcerated.

The kid should be offerred a job at the jeep bombing practice range. He would do a better job than the Army Corps of Engineers finding bombs.

This Spring, you might want to tell your kids to be careful with the easter bunny's oversized greyish eggs. Is it just me, or is Florida an active mine field?
