Not saying it IS or ISNT what happened...maybe someone just walked by and dropped it...still...that girl they interviewed sure knew a lot about how to make a drano bomb...
    Or maybe it was the OWS protestors trying to make conservatives look bad?
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Not like it's rocket science. I knew a lot about those "bombs" in Jr. High as well.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Joke, Ikari...Joke. Until we know something we dont 'know' anything.

    (hell...I was making test tube bombs in ISCS III back in 1977)

    I mean, no one got hurt. It doesn't sound like it was a very serious attempt to actually hurt anyone.
    Seriously? You're going to bring conspiracy theories into this? With all the Occupiers being arrested for simply exercising their Constitutional right to peacefully assemble and protest to voice their grievences do you really think they'd go to such lengths to bring this kind of negative attention onto themselves?

    Granted, anything is possible, but really, apdst?

    And you're basing this assessment on what exactly? What you see on FoxNews or all the other television news outlets?

    I'm one of the Occupiers; attended my first local rally just over two weeks ago and plan to participate again when I'm able. But in the mean time, I'm speaking up for the Occupiers as much as I can while also pointing out the movement's shortcomings same as some of you did when sticking up for the Tea Party movement.

    Look, we're not all poor, homeless, deadbeats who are standing around with our hands held out with no coherent thought waiting for Uncle Sam to come save us. Most of the Occupy protesters are ordinary people, a mixture from all social-economic backgrounds who are speaking out against a vast array of issues that have been building up in this country for years: income inequality, high cost of living, political corruption, corporate greed; you name it, they're pissed about it. This is why it's so difficult to pen down any one thing the Occupiers are upset about - the list is looooooong. If you've read the Declaration you'd know this.

    Michael Moore was on CNN's Piers Morgan show last night. I didn't watch the interview because of him; I watched to hear what people in the audience, as well as those who Tweeted or phoned in had to say. You have college graduates with Master's Degrees who have past-due student loans in the tens of thousands of dollars that they can't pay off because they can't find a job. You have middle-aged, hard working Americans who may or may not have made a mistake and go home mortgages that were beyond their financial means but are trying to hard to meet their obligations but are barely able to stay afloat. You have people who have worked hard all their life who are now retired but have medical situations and are now finding it increasingly difficult to pay their medical bills. Their entire life savings and retirement is being eaten up by medical expenses. And you people are mocking them? Un-freaking believable!!!

    Get out from in front of your flat screen TVs and go to one of these Occupy rallies near where you live OR read the Declaration...better yet, take up my challenge to find news articles that address the concerns as outlined in the Declaration and then come back and say these people have no reason to be protesting. I guarantee that most of you when start really digging deep into the issues won't be able to mock the movement for very long. The only thing that will keep you from seeing the truth is your own partisanship and selfishness.

    You know, I've actually tried to do that.... The only problem is that I can't seem to find them. Occupy Worcester (MA), has less than 100 individuals "attending", despite being based in the second largest (population) city in New England. A city that boasts nearly a dozen colleges and universities, including Liberal bastions like Clark and Becker and schools where the kids come out with massive debt bills like Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). Instead of "Occupying" the Worcester Common (right behind city hall) these people have relegated themselves to Lake Park, which is literally about as far outside of where ANYONE in the City would ever see them as possible. They didn't even have the balls to resist when the Worcester PD threw them off the Common the one night they attempted to stay there.

    I mock the Occupiers the same way I mock the Tea Partiers.... Give me a call when you people are ready to pick up the pitchforks, torches, and rifles. Until you're actually ready to DO something, get the hell out of the way of those of us who have lives we have to deal with. If you block the street in front of my car you're going to get run over, and I might just back up to make sure I got the job done right the first time.

    Well, we're not dealing with a bunch of rocket scientists here. And, you're right, it's not impossible that someone had the bright idea to pull some kind of stunt to arouse anger among the ranks of the OWS'ers, so as to get the revolution really rolling.

    Let's not act like something like that has never happened before.

    Just goes to show that with some people you just can't impart common sense nor appeal to their moral character no matter how hard you try. Yes, it is very sad indeed.
