Burn the house?
Sooooooo I want to know why are “we” (and by we I mean law enforcement) going to burn the bomb house down if we can’t identify all of the substances that Jakubec has inside? Are the authorities 100% positive that burning them is safe for the nearby homes and ummm PEOPLE?!??! Can I request the “burnin’ down the house” (I am funny!) thing be done on my day off?? That house is too close to where I work! I also want it to be Selena’s (Escondido PD) day off…. I also want a live video feed (I am really nosy and want to watch from a distance too) wow… I have a lot of demands… I wonder who I can call?? HEY hey hey! I heard that!!
Anyway, here is the update from November 30, 2010
ESCONDIDO, Calif., Nov. 30 (UPI) — San Diego County authorities said Tuesday they will burn down a house where a large collection of homemade explosives was discovered this month.
Sheriff Bill Gore told residents at a community meeting Tuesday night the house in Escondido was too cluttered with junk and potentially volatile materials to be cleared out.
“It is also not habitable,” Gore said. “The most effective way is to destroy the residence by fire.”
The San Diego Union-Tribune said Gore illustrated his concerns with photos of the home where George Jakubec allegedly had several pounds of various explosives squirreled away for reasons that remained unclear. Federal authorities have said the house was one of the largest explosives caches ever found in the United States.
Jakubec was arrested Nov. 18 after one of his alleged devices exploded in the backyard and injured a visiting landscaper.
The plan to destroy the house will involve building walls of Sheetrock around the property and closing nearby Interstate 15 in both directions, KGTV-TV, San Diego, reported.

nice post. thanks.
Finally, an issue that I am passionate about. I have looked for information of this caliber for the last several hours. Your site is greatly appreciated.
LOL Jessie Ummmmm ask any of my kids LAME is my middle name! If I thought I could use my dog has a headache to get out of work I would try it!
I agree the moral of this story is DON’T rob banks or make bombs. I agree 100% the house has to be destroyed. I just don’t want anyone hurt. I happen to think very highly of Escondido PD. Some of the greatest people I know. (Can I have a ‘get out of jail free’ card now? Hummm? Please??)
I didn’t mean to make it sound like law enforcement was doing a bad thing. I’m just worried this nut job hoarding chemicals makes a big badda boom and people especially those working closely around the house get hurt.
Thank you for the comment!
Well I think the moral of the story here is: Don’t rob banks and don’t make bombs, and then policemen won’t burn down your house.
You can try to use this to get out of work for a day, but it’s a lame excuse/
