Pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails

Can you think of a better way to keep somebody safe?
Investigators say a 17-year-old girl admitted to planting pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails at a Northwest side home, because she wanted to protect her friend.

Temera Renee Sparks is charged as an adult with crimes, including arson and conspiracy to commit arson. Investigators say she admitted to planting a pipe bomb on the target's car last Monday and security cameras caught her in the act. That explosive failed to detonate, however, but neighbors were evacuated from their homes for hours. Affidavits detail how she was trying to protect her friend, who is the intended victim's daughter.

She also admitted to throwing Molotov cocktails at the home in mid-July and trying to set the home on fire with a pipe bomb.

The target's ex-wife is supposedly involved, too. Sounds like there is a lot more interesting information to come out regarding this case.
