Fake Dynamite Prompts Evacuation
Yes, it's yet another story of knee-jerk overreaction to a nonexistent threat. But notice that the police evacuated everyone within a mile radius of the "dynamite." Isn't that a little excessive, even for real dynamite?
EDITED TO ADD (12/14): Assuming that this information is correct, this was an intentional hoax. The fake dynamite consisted of road flares duct taped together and attached to the side of the home.
