Law: Craig's List exists solely for serial killers and hookers.
It's bad enough that the second, and last, time I went on Craig's List, I was looking for garden statuary and decorations and came across an ad for a cage large enough to be used for "a dog, or anything..." That alone would have cemented the actual reason Craig's List exists in my mind. But news story after news story confirms just who finds Craig's List useful.
MADISON, Wis. -- Police say a 76-year-old Madison man has been arrested after he took out an ad on Craigslist looking for someone to build him a bomb. The man wanted to send the bomb to a Montana man who is a friend of the suspect's estranged wife. He wanted the bomb in a box and rigged to explode when opened. An agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives called the phone number in the ad and posed as a bomb maker, according to the police report. The man offered to pay $500 for the bomb and described how he wanted it to work. On Monday, ATF agents and police officers delivered the fake bomb. The suspect was wearing latex gloves at the time of the arrest. He's in custody, but hasn't been formally charged.
If you ask me, mailing a bomb to Montana is kind of like serving milk to a cow.
