    Pipe bomb disguised as chocolates goes off at Houston oil executive's home.



    Package bomb goes off at Houston oil executive’s home | Raw Story

    Neighbors of the victim told an ABC News affiliate in Houston that the bomb was disguised as a box of chocolates in a gift bag, left on the home's doorstep around Thursday.

    Instead, it contained what authorities described as a pipe bomb carrying a load of thumb tacks and nails. When she opened the package on Friday evening, standing on her back porch around 6:30, it resulted in shrapnel embedded across the woman's face -- injuries police said were not life-threatening.

    Good lord that's nasty. . . "life is like a box of chocolates" I guess is right.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    The lady who was victimized by this bomber is well known for her charity. Christ, she gave food away to people who needed it. Although I hate police brutality, I would be more than willing to look the other way, once they catch the asshole who did this.

    Well, to be fair, if you can be holding it while it goes off and still have a face, I'm not sure I'd refer to it as a bomb. That said, seriously, what kind of asshole does that?

    Maybe someone that has been listening to all of the hate coming out of the White House towards the oil companies?

    Don't forget thumbtacks, nails, and gift bags, too.
