Are people eligible for welfare while working 70-80 hour weeks and having only one child? Was the wife paying for his purchases, despite denying any knowledge of his actions? Or did she give him a hefty weekly "allowance"? If this is/was truly a two-man operation, who was footing the bill?
I may be wrong, but wasn't the bomb made from basic household items a radio from a race car and fireworks? They did have some guns apparently, but it didn't seem like this was a well funded operation from what I've read.
