OWENSBORO, Ky. — A federal grand jury has indicted an Owensboro man who reportedly was making pipe bombs to protect his family after watching a movie suggesting that the world will end in 2012.

Byron Birkhead, 50, was indited on charges of illegally possessing a firearm or destructive device, comprised of pipe bomb components and chemicals, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

On March 26, police and federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents responded to a complaint that Birkhead was making bombs at his home.

“When ATF agents interviewed Birkhead, he indicated that he had watched the movie ‘2012’ and was preparing to protect his family because the Mayan calendar proclaims that the world will end in 2012,” according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

If convicted, Birkhead faces up to 10 years’ imprisonment, a $10,000 fine and supervised release for a period of up to three years. He is to be arraigned on May 27.

When crazed and delusional people get arrested I feel safer. The Mayan Calendar doesn't end in 2012. Why would a calendar end? It goes on, well beyond 2012 and well beyond our lives and those of the Mayan. Let's hope he faces the full 10 years and has closely supervised release. I certainly don't want to share cities with him and am even apprehensive about sharing countries with him.

Jeff, the man is sick in the head and not a danger to you or your loved ones. Sometimes a 99er can not reason out the truth and does not have the intelligence you and I have.
He needs to be pitied and not worried over.

Anyone with pipe bombs, guns and ammunition that's that sick, that should be pitied, is dangerous to himself and the rest of the community. There's no telling what they'll do. People who believe the world will end in 2012 scare the shit outta me, especially if they're armed and even more if they have pipe bombs.
