You don't need to be a genius or look deep into some law books to realize driving around like that is a safety hazard....

The books were INSIDE an enclosed trailer. They were following and watching him just waiting to charge him.

Hey.....I don't agree with what he wanted to do, but I'm not naive enough to say the cops weren't looking for even the most pathetic excuse to stop him.

Technically, carrying a 5 gallon gas can in my trunk to fill my lawnmower isn't safe, but hundreds of thousands of American do it all the time.

When I said inside, I implied that the cops wouldn't know that someone had kerosene soaked books in there....they only knew because they were laying in wait to nail him.

This was a trailer that is in and of itself a huge BBQ Pit. I have serious reservations about it being like a bomb ready to ignite. Besides, kerosene doesn't flash like that.

When Obama talked about his red line in the sand he really meant that loose thread in his panties.
Oh no another Obamaspiracy for conservatives.

conservatives continue to drift further and further away from reality.

Oh please!

Kerosene soaked books inside an enclosed trailer wouldn't be visible to the cops...... unless they were just waiting to nail the guy.

Kerosene doesn't even explode into flames by a spark. It's not as volatile as gasoline.

I'm in no way defending this nut case, but let's be honest....they were looking for anything to prevent him.

C'mon here; you're not seriously chastising my maturity in comparison with them actually killing people over that little transgression. You're damn right I'd gloat if I was able to video them burning the things!

Catch them burning the stupid thing themselves and be able to show that to the world at large would be an invaluable tool to use to save future strife over nuts like Terry Buttshaw burning the things. Once the shock effect is removed, so too would go the desire for nutjobs like Terry to burn them. Win - win!

And yes I'd do the same for any work of fiction revered by zealots whose perceived mistreatment of those icons resulted in harm to humans, be the zealots christians, pagans or girl scouts.
When you gave them no choice.
Yeah, I am questioning your maturity on this issue.

That's rather lame to label all conservatives that way just because one on the fringe says something dumb.

I mean....are all liberals 911 truthers?

Oh, and this: "arrested for driving with kerosene in a barbecue grill". He was denied a permit to use the park for setting fires, and was caught driving with a flammable liquid in a grill in the back of his car.

No denial of free speech, just an idiot being arrested for doing illegal activity.
Yup. there's nothing like a car bomb with an idiot at the wheel.

We would have all been better of if the cops had just cleared the area and let Jones strike a match.
