Only In Pittsburgh


Only in Pittsburgh will you find an off-duty policeman, previously convicted for a road-rage incident, living in a trailer in Oakdale, on disability for a year due to carpal tunnel syndrome, which by the way didn’t seem to interfere with his homemade bomb production, bombs which were ostensibly created to blow up pumpkins in the woods, except for one that found its way into the trunk of his ex-wife’s car, and another which must have malfunctioned blowing up his trailer and blowing off his hand, scattering his possessions including white supremacy literature from the Aryan Nation, which was found by police as they answered a call by neighbors to investigate a loud “kaboom.”

You just can’t make this stuff up.

I wonder if the hand he lost was the one with carpal tunnel .....

Char!

You're slandering poor Mr. Palmer. He was hoarding ammo for a big pumpkin blow up party. It's probably an Oakdale Halloween tradition...

As to his being a Pgh. Police officer, do they even do psych tests on potential hires? If so, did they buy theirs on "Psych Tests R Us" on the internet?

At this point I think all city employees should be given lie detector tests - note that nut from Brighton Hts., who also had a stash of weapons - I think he's employed by that other stellar city dept., the fabled Dept. of Public Jerks, I mean Works...

I think they just give them the "Are you a nerd, geek or dork" quiz and call it a day.
