I am sure its just some innocent youth having fun, and this is being exploited as a local story when actually there is not one.

Youthful fun with combustibles.

My nephew's cousin's third best friend was there and said it was a standoff between the CHP and a speeding motorist who had a firecracker in the trunk of his nissan sentra.

Four plus hours and no follow -up report? Must be one hell of a big deal or it was much ado about nothing and the cops are to embarrassed to admit it.

Wow, it's good see the TS on top of journalism. 6.5 hours later nothing more. Is the road open?

Folks, if you are not going to cover the story, don't start it. A High Schooler in a journo class could do better.

From the Redding Record Searchlight:

Highway 299 was shut down for about 5½ hours west of Weaverville today after a pipe bomb was discovered on the side of the road.

The Shasta County Bomb Squad detonated the pipe bomb where a passing motorist found it this morning, said bomb squad member Sgt. Jason Barnhart.

A motorist had stopped at a gravel turnout and saw the device on the roadway’s shoulder, Barnhart said. The pipe bomb was found about two miles west of Junction City, he said.

California Highway Patrol and California Department of Transportation officials responded, and the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office called the bomb squad for assistance.

The pipe bomb was about 4 inches long and had metal end caps with a fuse, Barnhart said. The bomb squad’s robot was used to detonate the device.

Officials had no idea what the pipe bomb was doing on the side of the highway.

“We got there and rendered it safe, and collected evidence for the agency that we’re assisting,” Barnhart said.

The highway about 60 miles of west of Redding was shut down around 9:30 a.m. after officials responded to investigate.

Caltrans reopened the highway around 3 p.m., about an hour after the bomb was blown up.

Sir, that is just offensive for your fun. Most political violence is from the left, from Fascism to communism. Stalin stated that Fascism is the right wing.......... of the left wing. Get over yourself, get out of the echo chamber, or continue on as a herkimer.

Most of the political violence in the United States comes from the right. Just another smoke screen laid out by the regressive insurgents.

Toad and Road you are the same, no? Whatever, you are an idiot troll. Your rights to bash the Tea Party were gained for you by the Tea Party. So shut your hole.

Not really, most insurgents get their ideas from the communists.
