"Liberty U. student arrested over ‘napalm-like’ bombs."

“A small group of protesters gathered near the funeral services to criticize [Jerry Falwell,] the man who mobilized Christian evangelicals and made them a major force in American politics — often by playing on social prejudices. … Campbell County authorities arrested a Liberty University student for having several homemade bombs in his car. The student, 19-year-old Mark D. Uhl of Amissville, Va., reportedly told authorities that he was making the bombs to stop protesters from disrupting the funeral service. The devices were made of a combination of gasoline and detergent.”
