"Police look for link between C4 explosives in Manhattan cemetery and bizarre note found nearby"
SNIPPET: "Eight blocks of the plastic, military-grade explosive, formally known as Composition 4, were found in a black plastic garbage bag just inside Marble Cemetery, on E. Second St."
SNIPPET: "The explosives were buried near the back wall of the old cemetery, and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said "you could reasonably glean from that that it was put there to threaten any structure" on the other side.
The back wall of the cemetery abuts some brownstones and is about 100 feet from the notorious E 3rd Street clubhouse of the Hell's Angels motorcyle gang.
According to "Hell's Angels: Three Can Keep a Secret if Two are Dead" by Yves Lavigne, the biker gang stockpiled C-4 in the 1980s and one Manhattan member roams the nation teaching other gang members how to use explosives.
The C-4, wrapped in a black plastic garbage bag and buried in area away from graves, was dug up more than a year ago by a caretaker who didn't know what it was and put it aside against a tree.
There the deadly package sat, apparently undisturbed in the heart of the busy East Village, for 16 months."
SNIPPET: "Kelly said a strange "rambling" note signed "Jesus Christ" was left Sunday on a patrol car outside the 9th precinct on nearby E 5th Street.
Cops said the note said something like "stop putting Christ on 2nd St."
"It did make some reference to 2nd Street and it had some religious statements in it," Kelly said. "Investigators at this time don't see a connection between the note and the explosive.""

I’d have kept it.

SNIPPET: “A gardner dug up a garbage bag containing military-grade C-4 explosives at a historic Lower East Side cemetery last year, but left it at the site until someone called the police this morning, authorities said.
The NYPD Bomb Squad responded to the call at 10:51 a.m. after a device was found at Marble Cemetery on 2nd Street between First and Second avenues.
The sticks of C-4 were found stuffed in a black garbage bag.
“There is no ignition device,” said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.”
I hope you’re kidding Humblegunner.
If you’re not kidding; then you are today’s STUCK ON STUPID award winner.
The back wall of the cemetery abuts some brownstones and is about 100 feet from the notorious E 3rd Street clubhouse of the Hell's Angels motorcyle gang. According to "Hell's Angels: Three Can Keep a Secret if Two are Dead" by Yves Lavigne, the biker gang stockpiled C-4 in the 1980s and one Manhattan member roams the nation teaching other gang members how to use explosives.Looks like the detail about the note was put into the article as part of the ongoing anti-Christian agitprop campaign by partisan media shills.
Personally, you won't see me passing up free game meat that can be acquired without harm to others and no risk to myself, but my training was more culinary than explosive (I don't run with Lefty and his buddies). Wild pigs in Texas, beware. No license required. Bwahahahaha.
Ray Kelly said that C-4 is used in construction.
Either he is dumber than a box of rocks
Or he is a lying sack of Bovine Excrement
“after a device was found “
Bad reporting. Suspected device, yes, but explosives without a firing train is not a “device”.
The gardener remembered digging this up and said nothing? This case is taking on odd proportions.
Keeping free explosives is stupid?
Think about that real hard.
If I walk up on a bag of C4 with no detonation potential
you can bloody well bet that sucker is coming home with me.
An anonymous call might be made if it was in a sensitive location.
Heres the connection: “ 100 feet from the notorious E 3rd Street clubhouse of the Hell’s Angels”
Hells Angels HQ is not on the same side of the street (as the buildings whose backyards abut the cemetery....)
Cool, gunner! What did you win?
"A" in google spot is over "Big Red Machine" which is the HA HQ - note backyard wall of "Marble Cemetery" is behind the buildings that are across [on the] South south of E 3rd St (and SW of the HQ).
Also note re "Christ comment" in note - LaSalle Academy is an old Catholic parochial school directly west of the cemetery, and further west on 2nd ave tween 2nd and 3rd street is Church of the Nativity and on the south side of 2nd street (across the street from the cemetery is another Church (I believe that one of them is affiliated with the Lasalle academy).
(Bonus points for the Catholic Workers office one block further south).
NOT a bag of C4.
Not another one anyway.
Roger that. You never know when a little of that stuff would come in ~real~ handy.
free explosives AND an award. what a day!!
You and me both, brother. That stuff would be in my rainy day kit so fast....
heck, C-4 is KEWEL!
I’d have kept it, too, if I knew what it was, anyways....
I wondered where I left that...
Hmmmm.....C4 and a note from Jesus. Perhaps there really is a bomb in Gilead....
"Oh heck, here's a bag of C4! I'd best call the cops!"
It's just unfathomable to me.
Y’all fish the way y’all want and we’ll fish the way we want.
I can understand calling the cops, too, it might be a setup?
Or a bonanza! LOL!
Am I more stupid..if I have a gun, or not?
So they prudently concealed a pile of C4 somewhere *other* than their HQ? How peculiar.
“Oh heck, here’s a bag of C4! I’d best call the cops!”
It’s just unfathomable to me.
close to 99% of the population would have no idea what it was.
