Feds: Roller derby dispute led to Alabama bombings

MOBILE, Ala. — Federal investigators say a dispute over a roller derby team caused a woman to launch a bombing spree in Alabama.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Katherine Nelson has ruled that Samantha Leigh Kimbrough be jailed until her case is presented to a grand jury.

Authorities say Kimbrough’s roommate was kicked off a roller derby team. They say the 32-year-old Kimbrough sought revenge by setting off a pipe bomb Aug. 21 at the DreamLand Skate Center in Mobile. She’s also accused of detonating an earlier bomb at the same rink and flinging a failed device at the driveway of a team member of her roommate.

No one was hurt.

Kimbrough has not yet entered a plea to a bombmaking charge.

Seriously? This girl wasn't even ON a roller derby team. Seems kind of stupid to blame derby girls for being the victims in an attack, doesn't it?

I'd treat this girl like any other terrorist. Let justice be served!
