    When people think of heroes, they typically think of a big man, and laugh at little guys. And while in seeking to subdue a violent character without recourse to a deadly weapon, bigger, as a rule, is better, there is no correlation between physical strength and physical courage. For instance, I’m fond of the late John Wayne, who was the most popular actor in screen history. And yet, when World War II came, the 6’4 ½” Wayne got himself a deferment from the draft, and stayed home. Meanwhile, America’s most decorated soldier was 5’5, 110 lb. Audie Murphy. Forty-four-year-old Richard...

    ... The attack took place on the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur when there were about 80 people in the synagogue. German media named the killer as 27-year-old far-right activist Stephan Balliet and online streaming site Twitch said it was ‘working urgently’ to remove video of the rampage which he broadcast live on its platform. It showed him taking a bomb from his car and trying to blow up a gate at the side of the building. When a woman confronts him, asking if his behaviour was ‘really necessary’, he shoots her dead.

    DUDLEY, N.C. (WNCN) – Neighbors in Wayne County are still shaken but hoping for answers after an explosives bust earlier in the week. “At one time years ago, we would deal with people finding dynamite in old pack houses, but what we found Sunday I’ve had very few experiences like that,” said Maj. Richard Lewis of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. “They had enough explosives over there to blow Dudley off the map,” said Linda Jones. After raiding a Dudley trailer, deputies arrested Corey Bernard Manuel and Monica Lynn Hunt on felony charges of manufacturing and possessing a weapon of...

    A 23-year-old neo-Nazi was charged on Friday with planning an attack on a synagogue and gay club in Las Vegas. The suspect, Conor Climo, who was employed as a security guard, was arrested on Friday after FBI agents found unregistered bomb-making materials in his home, including fireworks, fuses, wiring, thermite, sulfuric acid, a soldering iron, circuit boards and other items needed for building timed explosive devices. The agents also found a notebook with handwritten plans on carrying out terror attacks in Vegas. The FBI said that Climo had been "communicating with individuals who identified with a white supremacist extremist organization...

Lyon mayor and former interior minister Gerard Collomb said one of the suspects is an IT student who was arrested as he stepped off a bus. "It's a relief for all Lyon inhabitants.

Security camera footage of the incident showed the main suspect wheeling a bicycle to the scene before leaving a bag outside a branch of a popular bakery chain.The man was caught...

    A man convicted of driving around Southern California with bombs he “designed and built to kill” in his car was sentenced on Monday to 19 years in state prison, prosecutors said. “There is no doubt that he had the intent by his possession of these weapons to commit as much mass destruction as he could,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said at a news conference, describing 48-year-old Saleh Ali of Salinas as a “wannabe terrorist.” Before hearing his sentence, Ali insulted the judge and made an anti-Semitic remark about the prosecutor, NBC Los Angeles reports. “You’re a cockroach,” Ali...

    A New Jersey man will spend 16 years in prison and the rest of his life under supervision for a plot to make and detonate a pressure cooker bomb in New York on behalf of ISIS, the Department of Justice announced Friday. Gregory Lepsky, 22, of Point Pleasant, N.J., pleaded guilty last year to attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization for the plot. Lepsky was arrested in 2017 after stabbing the family dog, and authorities found the pressure cooker in his bedroom closet. He had obtained bomb-making instructions, the pressure cooker, and the other items for the...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A Canadian woman was arrested Tuesday at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport after making what she called a "stupid joke" about a bomb in a suitcase.

According to the arrest report, Tremblay told the flight attendant, "There's a bomb in it" and began laughing. The attendant alerted the pilot, who ordered the plane to be evacuated, while the terminal was forced to close as a Broward Sheriff's Office...

    The National Nuclear Security Administration has canceled its previous plan to refurbish a warhead for use on the Air Force’s future land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles as well as on the Navy’s submarine-launched ballistic missiles, according to a December 2018 NNSA report to Congress that Air Force Magazine viewed Jan. 29. “[NNSA] is no longer planning for an interoperable warhead program as previously conceived,” the report states. “NNSA has no plans to pursue a W78 life-extension program using the existing aeroshell.” Instead, NNSA will pursue a safer but slightly more expensive warhead for the future Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent, the W87-1, which...

    A kids’ game that asked children to defuse a plastic, pretend bomb had parents exploding with anger — and now two major retailers are pulling the controversial toy. The game, called “Cut the Wire,” asks players to defuse a fake bomb before the timer runs out. Should a player cut the wrong wire with the toy wire cutter included in the game, the bomb sounds an alarm and lights up and vibrates to recreate an explosion simulation. The toy bomb is shaped like sticks of dynamite and the packaging is covered in flames to signify an explosion that has already...
