"He walked quite confidently into our office as though he had a mission, and I think that was what alarmed me right off the bat," Executive Director Vickie Chamberlain said.

I am not sure what I am reading here.

" . . . the pressure cooker did not turn out to be a bomb. He was charged with disorderly conduct."  Not making terroristic threats and facing 50 years in prison?  Impressive restraint.


"It looks like he was just trying to get attention,"
"The doors will stay locked certainly for the next near term until we are all a little more calm and until we can feel a little more reassured about how we are going to handle these situations if they occur in the future,"
So a locked door to prevent attention whoring? Cuz it sure ain't stopping a bomb blast.

but Chamberlain said it's possible that someone scraped the letter off

Guy's really going to be mad when more letters get scraped off. Welcome to the State of Oregon achey tard races.

Grammar Nazi threatens to blow up government building with pressure cooker bomb over my spelt sign

I admit, I've never had that type of wheat before, but I've heard it can be tasty.

"The doors will stay locked certainly for the next near term until we are all a little more calm and until we can feel a little more reassured about how we are going to handle these situations if they occur in the future,"

obviously, they need full time security, metal detectors and bag searches.

Leonard Burdek, 50, of Salem, told Chamberlain and the receptionist that he tried to blow up the agency's outside sign, but the bomb didn't work.

After discussing his failed attempt to detonate his bomb, the man complained that the instructions he downloaded to make the bomb also had misspellings.


Bwahaha!

What?  not charging him with what he did, which was attempt to blow up a building, is "impressive restraint"?  Sure they guy was an idiot, and nuttier than a fruit cake, but what's to keep him from downloading better instructions and trying again?  How impressive will the restraint be then?

/spelt


spelled!

/I always find it amusing that spelt/spelled can be spelt/spelled two different ways and neither is really right or wrong, it is a kind of ironic grammatic reverse onomatopoeia (if that makes any sense)
//except in the US where it is supposed to always be spelled I believe

I'm kind of torn. We don't know what actually happened (in any kind of great detail), so part of me says "Don't toss someone in prison for life just for being a moron" ...but, yeah, if you're the kind of moron who threatens and seriously attempts to kill/harm lots of strangers just because you're miffed (even if you fail due to your current ineptitude), the world is much better off with you being locked away.

Hate to break it to you, but he had a pressure cooker with a few wires hanging out of it. Not a bomb. Not an attempt at a bomb. No instructions were downloaded; that's the joke.

He seems more like a spelling Nazi.

At ASU, there are several buildings joined together called the Bateman Physical Sciences Center.

A while back, someone scraped of the "e" in "Bateman". It was then the "Bat man Physical Sciences Center". Best. Letter-scrape-from-a-sign. Ever.

I guess I missed the part that said it was just wires, and not an actual attempt at a bomb. Please point me to that info.  Silly me.
Even so, dude should have been taken in for psych eval, instead of just "wow. silly old man.  How cute.

But if you rob a bank with a fake gun, they give you the same sentence as if it had been a real gun.

Disagrees.
It ain't armed robbery if the gun ain't loaded.
