    Wel.. Since they blew up a briefcase in Beverly Hills yesterday I assume that they will be blowing up the entire block today.

    Cool so someone inadvertently leaves – what? A birthday present? Perhaps a baby shower gift? A package they received from UPS that they haven’t had the time to open, and someone waltzing by decides Al Qaeda simply must be out to get that particular neighborhood? Alarmist much Los Angeles? I can see it now, tomorrow AM the owner of the car calls Mercury Insurance and tries to see if they’re covered for LAPD blowing up their car because they left their neighbor Judy’s going away gift in the car. Oopsies!!!

      You can guarantee that the LAPD will not be responsible for the car.
      In fact they will probably charge you for there time as well as the explosive.

    this was right by my house. Its sad last week they wouldnt even let me get to my house because someone saw a suspicious man jump a fence. All of a sudden he was armed and dangerous then after an hour of standing around they left.
