Man Threatens to Blow up Building over Misspelled Sign

Dressed in a button-up winter coat and stocking cap, 50 year-old Salem, Oregon resident Leonard Burdek, placed a pressure cooker (with wires sticking out) on the receptionist counter of into the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission office.

Burdek told employees that he tried to blow up the agency’s outside sign because it was misspelled on Wednesday morning.

But thankfully the bomb didn’t work.

The sign spells out the agency’s name in blue letters. One side is missing the letter “D” in the word “and” so it reads: “Teacher Standards an Practices Commission.”

The staff called Salem Police and Burdek was arrested about an hour later.
