Federal agents have arrested a suburban Denver man accused of trying to trade explosive devices for cocaine or cash.
Federal prosecutors said U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents removed multiple explosive devices from the Morrison man’s home Thursday and rendered them safe….According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Sandberg told an undercover officer he is a former U.S. Marine. The affidavit says Sandberg and the officer discussed trading explosive devices for drugs or money and that the officer left Sandberg’s home after a visit this week with three devices.
Cocaine: illegal. Still why would cash be a decent substitute for an illegal drug? Easy you can simply BUY Cocaine, legal or not. Explosives: Illegal, but boy he sure built some. There are whole pages of high school and college text books on how explosives work, and how to make them. We give these out to our kids, and keep them in our public library. There are also more crude formulations for explosives to be found online, and in pamphlets.
Odd, the law doesn’t seem to stop this guy at all. Now it DOES allow us to arrest him. But so does using a firearm improperly. We already have laws and steep penalties for that, but these NEW laws are claiming to STOP said crimes BEFORE they happen.
Sorry, but there’s reality in the way.
