"There's been a lot of flashlight bombs out west. Especially I think there's like four that have occurred within the last couple days in Phoenix area and its gradually moving to the East Coast."

Name one incident that has taken place east of Phoenix. You people are idiots.

Technically Wal-Mart is in the county of Albemarle, not within the city limits.

1- LOL, your comment shows how smart you are not been able to differentiate between Cville and Albemarle County.
2- You would be QQing if it was a bomb and your loved one touched it!

I don't recall hearing about any flashlite bombs, and even if I had how would your average braindead Walmart employee all the way over here on the east coast make the connection? Sounds like a hoax to me.

Our society and life as we know it here in the U.S. requires trust. Many things in our society can be used for evil if the wrong (arsshole) individual uses it for that purpose. The only reason our neighborhoods and bidnesses can thrive is through general trust. When these evil intentioned individuals cause fear and panic they erode our confidence and the whole system will break down. Therefore we should have absolutely NO mercy when dealing with the perpetrators so as to set an example for others whom think about committing these crimes.

The ATF will become ATFF , the added F will be for FLASHLIGHT. The democrats are at this moment writing a bill to restrict the sale and manufacture of FLASHLIGHTS. You will need a permit to own a MAGLIGHT with a battery capacity of 3 or more batteries. You will need a "CONCEALED FLASHLIGHT carry permit " for pocket size FLASHLIGHTS. Liberals will lobby for an outright BAN on all FLASHLIGHTS . Only law enforcement will be allowed to carry PINK FLASHLIGHTS like the one found today at 29 WALMART. Barek obama will declare that FLASHLIGHTS are RACIST , then Al and Jesse will jump in the fight against RACIST and their FLASHLIGHTS .....
Come on

Just to show how stupid you all are about this subject go to google and type in flashlight bomb phoenix az and there have been 3 so far in that area. According to their press release when you turn on the flashlight instead of it lighting up it explodes in your hands and face. Don't "trash" the employee for being aware of items out of place.
WOW

Maybe beacause Wal-mart employees are not brain dead and actually watch the news and not trash or reality tv.

There have been pipebomb style explosives made out of flashlights in the Phoenix and Glendale areas. It's been on the news out there, maybe not national news. You can easily look up the stories. It sounds silly, but then again, who would have thought that someone would make an explosive device out of their own underwear. Better to be safe than sorry.

People in the county of albemarle and the town of charlottesville can hardly load a shotgun. You expect people to believe that there is one person that could assemble a bomb? Please!

Yes flashlight bombs have been showing up recently in the Phoenix area. Yes they explode when switched on. Fortunately no one has died as the result of these bombs in the Phoenix area.

All those posting here as if this is some kind of joke should get a bloody clue, bombs do explode, and people do get hurt.

Morons!

Hope that they don't start showing up in C-Ville.

The person who looks stupid in this story is the fire official who doesn't know that the flashlight bombs have ALL BEEN IN PHOENIX and there is no evidence of them anywhere else. He could have said we need to act prudently because of what has happened in Phoenix. That makes sense. If he's speaking in an official capacity he needs to get his facts straight. Now we look like we live in a town whose officials are stupid... which reflects badly on all of us.
