Black Powder Shoplifters Smoked - 7

From the Outdoor News Hound “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” department comes a story out of Bayou Black, Louisiana, where a pair of 19-year-olds learned the hard way that when you’re messing around with a canister of black powder you just shoplifted from the local Wal-Mart, it might be best to stifle your personal smoking habits for the time being.Goex_2

Authorities with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office say that Alex Horn and Johnathan Porche were found in possession of stolen black powder one evening last week. Oddly, they were lacking muzzleloaders, flintlock rifles or other common black powder devices.

And what prompted the cops to go to the Horn residence that night, where the two shoplifters were discovered, allegedly in the act of fabricating a pipe bomb?

Well, there was this explosion, you see.

Things evidently really went south when the two sticky-fingered teens were in the home’s kitchen, and Porche nonchalantly flicked the ashes from his burning cigarette in close proximity to the opened black powder container.

Can you say, KABOOOOM!!?

Deputies said some damage was done to the home’s kitchen and dining room. The two, who admitted to filching the black powder, were treated for minor injuries and booked into jail on charges of shoplifting and possessing or making a bomb.

It is another fine example of the School system we have allowed to take over this country. Stupid kids taught by stupid teachers and parents.

You are absolutely correct, Julie. These are two of my finest students, who work hard each day to prove my theory. I commend them for their efforts, and know that with continued dedication, they will someday be successful.

Prime example of lack of supervision by parents, not checking on their kids! Kids today are exposed to many things personally, over the internet and other media such as TV, X-BOX, PlayStation games all partraying violence of some type. Lack of education from parents and school system even religious structure in families has allowed the youth of today to experiment freely with drugs, theft, property damage, misuse of firearms and as in this case assembly of potential explosive devices.Maybe, if these youth were taken out into the outdoors shown how to hunt, fish, grow gardens, and respect of other peoples property they would be less likely to engauge in negative activies. It's sad to see so much negative activity from todays youth...one day in the future these same persons will be voting or actually be the future represenetives and senators to govern our nation and protect our rights and freedoms.How do we get the youth educated to respect themselves, their families and the rest of the people around them? It starts with parenting, structured lifestyle, theaching them right from wrong!
