    This happened at 1pm today. Luckily, my buddy’s fine, it missed him, but holy shit.

    Watch out on the Greenway guys I just had a maltov cocktail thrown at my over the 15th bridge. It just missed me and I am fine but watch out. Pretty scary.

    Arson unit was called, and the police are taking the matter very seriously.

    the officer said investigators would be trying to pull fingerprints from the broken glass left on the Greenway.

    we can only hope the perps were dumb enough to not wear gloves.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading fark it’s that criminals are generally pretty stupid. I can’t even imagine the kind of trouble that a-hole will be in.

    I like the idea of fencing on the bridges where these terrorist throw stuff off. There’s no need to add the cost of fences on all bridges or even an entire neighborhood, just focus on the bridges where there are reports of things being drop/thrown on the Greenway.

    Honestly, I feel a 6 foot fence on the bridge wall (for lack of a better word), making the top of fence 8-9 feet over the sidewalk would stop most stupid jerks from throwing stuff on the Greenway. Yes, they could lob it over, but then they will lack any accuracy, reducing the chance that they would be able to target a person on the trail.

    Looks like they caught some kids who did this.

    I thought acts of terrorism had less regulation on criminal charges. I don’t care if they are kids, whoever did this needs some serious punishment.

    I guess I didn’t realize you could be too young to be charged with a crime like this. Whats the specific law on this? Seems this was clearly attempted murder, assault w/ deadly weapon. If they had the intellect to make a bomb and carry out such an attack seems they have the mental capacity to know better. Or there was in fact someone else that made the bomb and gave it to them directing them. In which case they need to find that person.
