(Mercury News)   Cops are now calling the Vegas backpack bomb a targeted murder, not a terrorist act. Everybody stop panicking, and on a related note, be sure to pay your bookie what you owe him   ( divider line

What happens vagas stays in vagas.
2007-05-07 01:13:28 PM  
And it wasn't a freaking backpack.

Did you read the article?

I think Dora the Explorer is involved. You know Map, sometimes the dude just FLIPS OUT! I wouldn't put it past him to take Backpack with him.

Vauge Ass?
2007-05-07 02:12:04 PM  
It was a streetlight.
2007-05-07 02:12:06 PM  
sand in the vagas?
2007-05-07 02:12:34 PM
wanted for questioning

That was an early prototype of my Mobile Backpack Meth Lab (MBML). Now they hardly ever explode.

I doubt the cops were EVER calling it a terrorist action, unless they want to lose their jobs. Vegas depends on tourism.
2007-05-07 02:20:32 PM  
Just don't expect to get your bloody black backpack back.
2007-05-07 02:20:49 PM  
The Luxor sucks... serves him right.
2007-05-07 02:21:10 PM  
It's a good thing this happened when it did, cause CSI was just about out of ideas.
2007-05-07 02:22:35 PM  
The victim was last heard saying "I've made a HUGE mistake."
2007-05-07 02:23:25 PM  
In other news, I knew they had strip clubs in Vegas, but this is the first I've heard of a strip resort. Is that like a crack mansion?
2007-05-07 02:23:46 PM  
I've heard rumours that it was really a missle.
2007-05-07 02:24:10 PM
On it.
2007-05-07 02:24:35 PM  
"It was a suicide. A real tragdedy. Me and Vito saw the whole thing."
2007-05-07 02:28:24 PM

The other person

/what was wiley's gender anyway?
2007-05-07 02:28:24 PM

Sam 'Ace' Rothstein not impressed
2007-05-07 02:28:40 PM  
Yeah, but is the cow ok?
2007-05-07 02:28:48 PM  
From NPR report.

It was a coffee can. Apparently it was targetted at the guy who died. One other person was injured.. Some love-triangle dispute.

My guess is that they'll probably have the person in custody by tomorrow.
2007-05-07 02:30:08 PM  
Sounds like it's time to do another organized crime purge in Vegas.
2007-05-07 02:32:44 PM  
targeted murder?"targeted murder"

Oh, alrighty then.

Nice to see the mob is moving back in to Vegas.

Wait- not turrism?

*blinks, cocks head quizzically, blinks again*

But what kind of trouble could a casino employee possibly get into? No, I'm going to stick with it being turrism. EVERYBODY KEEP PANICKING!!!11!1!
2007-05-07 02:52:13 PM
Not Impressed
2007-05-07 02:55:28 PM

Wanted for questioning.

2007-05-07 02:55:53 PM  
"...the case was being investigated as 'a homicide with an unusual weapon.'"

Not impressed.

razordu30: /obscure?

A character from a movie by an Academy Award-winning director that was so successful it spawned two sequels.

Real obscure.
2007-05-07 03:49:18 PM  
ie, the bomber was white.
2007-05-07 04:00:13 PM  
Jon Snow: A character from a movie by an Academy Award-winning director that was so successful it spawned two sequels.

Real obscure.

Mission to Mars had two sequels???

I don't think this was a gambling-related incident. I mean a bookie would've just taken a little sulfuric acid to the guy's foot.
2007-05-07 04:51:38 PM  
Death to snitches
2007-05-07 05:14:45 PM  
is that the new cliche? Posting references to ridiculously mainstream pop culture items and then slashing 'obscure'?

/bizarre-o trolls make no sense
//not that trolls ever did
///people get bored, i guess.
2007-05-07 05:36:43 PM  
So, a bomb in a parking garage is NOT terrorism.

But a Lite Brite Ignignokt in Boston IS terrorism.

Got it.
2007-05-07 05:45:05 PM  

That's becaue a lite brite ignignkot wouldn't show up well in Vegas.

Good episode last night.

"We are here at the Luxor hotel and casino in Las Vegas, where we've secretly replaced the fine coffee they usually serve with an improvised explosive device. Let's see if anyone can tell the difference."
