Woman Sentenced for Condom Explosives

BOSTON (AP) — A former strip club waitress was sentenced Wednesday to five years of supervised release after she pleaded guilty to mailing threatening letters and flammable material, including condoms filled with a potentially explosive mixture, court documents said.

The documents said Kimberly Lynn Dasilva, 49, of Hull, mailed the condoms to a television station, strip clubs where she had worked and other places, saying she was tired of being mistreated by men. In May, she pleaded guilty to mailing threatening communications and a violation of injurious articles as nonmailable.

U.S. District Judge George O'Toole sentenced Dasilva to the supervised release with conditions, including not contacting victims, receiving mental health counseling and treatment, performing 500 hours of community service and refraining from alcohol.

None of the condoms exploded. Dasilva told investigators she did not think they would explode.

she sounds like a criminal, not a hero.

Yes. She did a criminal thing but it's funny in my mind because I've certainly had fantasies of getting back at men... of course, this story wouldn't be funny if she had actually hurt someone. Since people are okay you can kind of smile at it.

Oh my, the double standards reek in this place. If a man said that he had fantasies about "getting back" at women but it was "ok" since he never actually acted on them, you would be on them like white on rice.

I actually felt a little smile forming when I saw absolute proof of your blatant hypocrisy.

I'm aware that she did something wrong. Hence the name of the post being "SORRY, but this kind of made me smile." Because I like the idea of a woman who has clearly been abused by men doing something about it-- and something kind of funny like that (sending them exploding phalluses). Like I said, not funny if she would have hurt someone. But the irony is that she sent exploding penis-like objects...

If she would have seriously injured someone, then she would be a criminal… well come to think of it she’s still a criminal for sending explosives in the mail but besides the point…

*sigh* Why don't you “anonymous” types ever come here to try and learn something about serious issues like sexual assault or domestic violence? No. You come here and pounce on something small and insignificant. Just a random article I threw up because the title made me laugh and it’s so bizarre.

Hmm... Maybe because anonymous people like you are determined to prove me an inconsequential, silly female who is really about hating men?

Nice try, but if you actually took the time to read even JUST the header of my blog—this site isn’t about man-hating. It's about a safer world for men and women with a little time for fun thrown in—because, after all, it’s a blog not debate club.

The funny part of this story was in the irony of condoms with explosives.

It's not right or legal... but it's ironic...

PS: Get over yourself.
