Massachusetts, Joseph Capitanio Bomb

Published: January 23, 2016

Massachusetts, Joseph Capitanio Bomb, A man in Massachusetts was sentenced to 2 years in prison after his 2-year-old son had alerted police about his father’s illegal business. “Big boom, Daddy uh-oh,” the toddler told police after his father accidentally detonated a homemade bomb.

Joseph Capitanio was sentenced earlier this week. His lawyer — speaking after during the sentencing — describe Mr. Capitanio’s act as “one of the dumbest things he’s done.”

The 33-year-old Capitanio pleaded guilty in October to possession of an infernal machine and other offenses.

Authorities say Capitanio tried to build the explosive in March by packing a carbon dioxide canister with gunpowder, but accidently ignited it when he tried to seal it with a blowtorch.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Capitanio’s son was in another room in their Pittsfield home when the blast went off. The boy wasn’t harmed, but Capitanio was injured by shrapnel.
