    Just up the road from me too. The wife and I were coming back from dinner and wondered why the road was shut down. The smart signs said that it was just an accident. Some accident.... But they may have looked at the driver and thought maybe one of the explosives went off....

    Here is a little more info on this person. I did not realize untill I saw more news coverage tonight that this is the same person that was caught taking pictures of planes arriving and departing DFW Airport before and was on a no fly list. I remember now when this happened. She is a even a bigger wacko than I first thought. Check out the video on the web site.

    FORT WORTH — Southeast Loop 820 and East Rosedale Street in Fort Worth were reopened early Sunday morning after being shut down for five hours overnight.

    The Fort Worth bomb squad detonated four charges that were found in a pickup truck that spun out on a slick road during a police pursuit.

    Two people are in custody, and one of them — Kimberly Suzanne Al-Homsi — is well-known to police and federal agents.

    The Fort Worth bomb squad worked through the evening on the threat. They sent a robot to check a possible explosive device inside the truck.

    Investigators recovered a toy gun and three pipe-like items containing suspicious material.

    Greta Willis Moss and other neighborhood residents were on alert. "Been here 27 years," she said. "This is just something wrong; we've never seen anything like this before."

    It all started in Arlington as a road rage incident in the 1000 block of West Abrams Street, police said.

    "Someone called to say that there was a person in another vehicle that pointed a weapon at them," said Arlington police spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard. "Officers found that vehicle and tried to conduct a stop. That vehicle did not stop, and as a result, the officers conducted a pursuit."

    The chase continued for 20 minutes. It came to an end when the truck spun out on Rosedale at around 5:30 p.m.

    Officers took two people into custody: Kimberly Suzanne Al-Homsi, 45, — who is also known as Asma Al-Homsi — and Yasinul Alan Ansari, 18. They reportedly told police there was an "incendiary device" in the vehicle.

    Al-Homsi was charged with evading arrest, two counts of terroristic threats, and also a prohibited weapons count. Both remained in custody Sunday without bond due to federal holds.

    News 8 has learned that Al-Homsi has been under government surveillance and was on the federal "no-fly" list after being involved in a road rage incident in December, 2005.

    At that time, she held up an inert grenade and threatened another motorist. The Garland bomb squad found ammunition in her car.

    In 2007, the FBI and the Dallas Police Department called Al-Homsi a possible danger. Police say she has explosives and sniper training.

    In an exclusive interview with News 8 in 2007, Al-Homsi said she disagreed with U.S. policy in the Middle East.

    Arlington police are working with the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on the current case.

    No kidding! I guess in some special cases, after hitting every branch of the way down, the ugly tree will unroot itself, and actually hunt someone down.

    I'm thinking this is more of a wacko, but I guess there is a small likelihood that this could be a case of domestic terrorism. Did she have a set goal in mind? What were the explosives for? Why was she taking pictures of departures and arrivals?

    When I was a child, my grandparents lived on Manchester Blvd in the landing path of LAX. When we'd drive into Los Angeles to visit we'd inevitably drive down the side streets of Inglewood, parking between the runways and the beach, and watched the "take-offs" go out over the Pacific Ocean. The sound of the engines was similar to having a SR71 fly by now during an "air show." No one sat in waiting with a bazooka or a rocket or a laser or what ever. We just enjoyed watching them come and go. It's a shame the kids of today won't experience that rush of power from the sounds overhead.

  7. Is it possible to have too big a rush of power? I've been on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier during launching/recovering, and that is quite a humongous rush of power. Definitely wouldn't want kids there though. That place certainly earns its spot as one of the most dangerous places to work.
