We found a tennis ball handmade bomb in our garden on Sunday morning. It looked pretty amateur but was full of shards of glass and was obviously some sort of explosive as it was all burnt out.
Dp basically said not to worry aBout it as we live adjacent to a park and it was most likely kids etc. probably true but it wasn't far from the kids rooms and honestly, who does this?!
anyway I rang the police today and they said they'd send a car over. Then they rang back and said to drop it in, which I did. When I arrived and explained to the lady (possibly policewoman) on reception who I was and that I'd rung earlier she started smirking and then laughed as she walked away to show the coppers the bomb/ ball. Basically she made me feel like a total dic*head. I made a comment that I didn't find it funny since it could have gone through my kids bedrooms.
Did I over react? Is it now okay to through explosives over fences? Are coppers just too under the pump and a handmade bomb is insignificant?
