It's spreading...

For some reason in our day and age, when a crazy person does something crazy with a Beretta 92 9mm handgun, the news reporters camp out Beretta's headquarters and charge employees as they leave work shouting, "WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT WHAT YOUR HANDGUN DID?!"

I never thought we'd see that transfer to other objects...

CBS News: Pressure cooker maker: Our pots "not intended" for bombs
Fagor America, Inc ... released a statement Wednesday saying it has been contacted by investigators and is fully cooperating. The pressure cookers "are not intended to be used for any other purpose other than cooking,"
Well shit! Why didn't you say so! I'll bet money they didn't even have "No Terrorist Bombings" on the warning label! THEY'RE CULPABLE! WHAT DID YOU KNOW, AND WHEN DID YOU KNOW IT?!

But it gets better! The maker of a battery used to power the device speaks out!
"We were appalled to discover that one of our off-the-shelf products was used in such a horrific and senseless act of hate,"
So, now we need to investigate the these high capacity rapid fire electron holders?

This is utterly silly, the only thing that could make it worse is some stats about the previous products to strongly imply the danger we are all in at the hands of these merchants of death!
The battery company said the product, a 1.25V 3000mAh Sub-C siz Nickel Metal Hybrid, is widely available on the retail market and they have sold tens of thousands of it over the past year. Fager America said they sell over 250,000 pressure cookers annually.
This is sad.
