Cops report Molotov Cocktail found at Durham, NC #ferguson protest.

This is my shocked face. Thankfully, the idiot who made the Molotov didn’t double down on stupid by throwing it:

Police recovered what appeared to be an “undetonated explosive device” Saturday morning at a location where more than 20 protesters were arrested during a demonstration Friday night.

The device, a bottle with a wick and an “apparent petroleum-based liquid,” was found in the 600 block of Foster Street, between West Geer and West Corporation streets, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

Police had no reports of any such devices being thrown during the demonstration, but rocks and sticks were thrown at officers, Michael said.

…Later on the article, somebody histronically asked why cops were wearing riot gear.  Call me crazy, but I suspect that when you’re facing low-tech missile, melee and (potentially and allegedly, to be sure) incendiary weapons, you’re going to want to have body armor. At least, I would.

PS: Throwing Molotov Cocktails at cops is not wise. Don’t do that.
