Well wait a second if you were a criminal wouldn`t it be a good idea to put it next a elementary school and disguise it like that? Plus it did look kind of suspicious sitting in the middle of the street, a place where a child would not be playing with it...

Hmm... In our town near a local restaurant they called in the bomb squad to come look at a cylindrical thing they found on the ground next to a dumpster. They didn`t blow it up, but finally determined it was a flashlight.........

Oh, holy hell...
When I take my girlfriend to the airport at the end of the month, I`m going to leave my ancient Teddy Ruxpin in the garage, with the battery compartment open.

Personally, I think it`s better safe than sorry. A pony in the middle of the road, with visible `wires` hanging from the belly? There ARE sick people out there. Besides, it was pretty awesome.

Did they really think someone would put an explosive device in the middle of a cul-de-sac?
even if the horse was packed full of C-4 the blast radius would not have reached the sidewalk. This is a victory for whoever put the horse there.

This does seem pretty stupid, but its better safe than sorry. There was a pipe bomb found by a child in a primary school over here a few days ago, so you never really know what some people are capable of.

Serving the public interest, nothing for the police to be ashamed of.

yet if it was a bomb and it blew 5children to kingdom come it would have been a stupid decision to not blow it up.

there are 2 reasons why it can be there. a kid left it there, or its left as lure for kids by a psychopath. there are 2 things you can do, ignore it or blow it up.

blow it up and if it`s nothing you look stupid
blow it up and if it`s a trap people just got spared the same fate as that horse
ignore it and if it`s nothing everything is fine
ignore it and if it`s a drating trap you get to scrape pieces of child off of everything instead of just a toy horse

they can only choose the ignore or not part. and looking at the 2 outcomes each of the decision that can be made has, i think this was the best.

i hope everyone that mocks what happened here dies or gets maimed for life when something else got ignored and turned out to be a goddamn bomb.
bloody idiots.

I like when they show the ripped up corpse after blowing it up and someone had tagged in red around it so it looks even more gruesome.

And now they owe some child a new toy. Hopefully no kids saw that; seeing Mini Mr. Ed blown to pieces could be traumatizing.

I understand that you can "never be too careful" but I think this proves otherwise.

If you have ever seen the actions of a group of chimpanzees finding a snake in a tree... that is exactly what this reminds me of.

poor, poor pony. I wish It showed the childrens reaction to the pony exploded. It would be pretty sad if that pony was some little girls birthday present that their mom or dad dropped of for her. lol
