Falwell Follower Arrested On bomb Charges!!!
A student at the late Rev. Falwell's Liberty University was charge with death bombs.
He said he wanted to stop anti-falwell protest, and counter with his own protest.
Awww, how "christian" of you with your lil bombs?
[ABC]:Even in death, the Rev. Jerry Falwell rouses the most volatile of emotions.
A small group of protesters gathered near the funeral services to criticize the man who mobilized Christian evangelicals and made them a major force in American politics -- often by playing on social prejudices.
A group of students from Falwell's Liberty University staged a counterprotest.
And Campbell County authorities arrested a Liberty University student for having several homemade bombs in his car.
The student, 19-year-old Mark D. Uhl of Amissville, Va., reportedly told authorities that he was making the bombs to stop protesters from disrupting the funeral service. The devices were made of a combination of gasoline and detergent, a law enforcement official told ABC News' Pierre Thomas. They were "slow burn," according to the official, and would not have been very destructive.
"There were indications that there were others involved in the manufacturing of these devices and we are still investigating these individuals with the assistance of ATF [Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms], Virginia State Police and FBI. At this time it is not believed that these devices were going to be used to interrupt the funeral services at Liberty University," the Campbell County Sheriff's Office said in a release.
Three other suspects are being sought, one of whom is a soldier from Fort Benning, Ga., and another is a high school student. No information was available on the third suspect.
Authorities were alerted to the potential bomb plot after relative of Uhl called to say that he had homemade bombs in his possession. Officials searched Uhl's car where they found five incendiary devices in the trunk.
Uhl is currently being held under no bond at the Campbell County Adult Detention Cente.
Justice MH's Final thoughts: i'm not really surprise with this story about a student at Falwell's university. It's like i said hate breeds hate, and that's what Falwell promoted. So i guess this young man has been nuture to go to extreme measures of violence. Is this the type of fine young american men Falwell's liberty university is breeding?
