May The Schwartz Be With You

Ya know, if you're gonna plant a bomb, why would you do it at a federal courthouse? Federal-Pound-You-In-The-Arse-Prison is no joke.

(CNN) -- The FBI's counter-terrorism unit is trying to determine who detonated a small explosive device early Sunday at the federal courthouse in San Diego, California.

The bomb, which damaged windows but caused no injuries, went off about 1:40 a.m. (4:40 a.m. ET), just outside the Edward J. Schwartz Federal Courthouse, the FBI said.

The blast shattered a glass door to the courthouse and broke a window in a building across the street, the bureau reported.

The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force took over the investigation from local authorities after investigators determined the blast was the result of an explosive device.

No claim of responsibility has been issued, said Special Agent Darrell Foxworth, an FBI spokesman. The streets around the building were blocked off as investigators searched the building, which is near the city's waterfront. (H/T - CNN)

Idiots. So apparently, they wanted to send a "message" to the Feds, but wanted to do it when no was around, and no one would get hurt. In that case, couldn't they have saved money on the device and just thrown rocks?

I'm just sayin'.
