Doesn't everybody go to Walmart to get their fireworks materials? I mean it's always "low prices".
MONCKS CORNER — The FBI tested liquids Tuesday that were found inside a car trunk where authorities say they also discovered multiple pipe bombs.
Yousef Megahed, 21, and Ahmed Mohamed, either 24 or 26 according to arrest records, were charged Monday with possession of an explosive device. They were still in custody Tuesday after a judge set bond at $300,000 for Megahed and $500,000 for Mohamed.
Mohamed said during a Monday bond hearing that the contents in the trunk were fireworks he made from materials he bought at Wal-Mart.
I've never known one person who made their own fireworks from stuff they bought at Walmart. I'm telling you they got the idea from news reports:
The item made a loud bang, similar to a firecracker, when it was demolished, authorities said.
And who gives a rip what CAIR has to say about it? They have no more clue than I do what those two were up to:
Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil rights organization for Muslims, said family members have told him they think the materials were leftover fireworks Megahed kept in his trunk since July 4.
Leftover fireworks. Are there any witnesses who saw them shoot fireworks on the 4th of July? We need to hear from them. Now.
