SPOKANE The FBI is searching for the person connected to a possible attempted bombing in Spokane. The bomb was found along the Martin Luther King parade route. The bomb could have caused multiple deaths if it had exploded says the FBI.
The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of people responsible for placing the backpack on a bench.
At approximately 9:25 a.m. Monday, a suspicious backpack was discovered on a bench at the southeast corner of N. Washington Street and W. Main Avenue in downtown Spokane.
The Spokane Explosives Disposal Unit was notified and safely neutralized the device.
During the investigation, it revealed the backpack contained a potentially deadly destructive device, likely capable of inflicting multiple casualties.

Place your bets, could it be another leftest?
Those AMISH are sneaky.
Did they ask where Sara Palin was?/s
Democrats still PO'd about Republicans getting that "Civil Rights Thingy" passed despite them?
It is easy to plant false evidence to divert attention from the correct motive.
I dunno. Spokane’s rep is a GOPer...mighty suspicious...
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho isn’t far away.
Biggest white supremacist camp in the country there, iirc.
Just what we need, more senseless violence. The idiot or idiots that did this should be condemned as cruel and dangerous.
Never mind the obvious frame-up potential of it happening at a MLK parade, I’m very dubious of the “bomber” leaving a T-shirt in the same backpack. He decided to use a backpack that he’s had for quite some time, and “forgot” he left “his” t-shirt in it?
Why would a city with only 3% blacks have a MLK parade?
Have the 0mediabots started with the accusing yet?
My thoughts exactly. The left has the most to gain. The right gains nothing.
It’s Washington State; don’t take the bait.
Biggest white supremacist camp in the country there, iirc
I think we may have a winner here.
Shall we suggest the SPLC, the New Black Panther Party or maybe the folks over at the DSA. Anyone of them are up to their eyeballs provolking violence.
Ha, excuse me, TWO shirts in the backpack, the other one says “Treasure Island Spring 2009” but doesn’t look fancy enough to come from the casino IMO:
Does anyone know where Eric Fuller was at the time?
Every four or five years someone tries to revive it and passes out a few fliers but I don't think its realistic to call the Couer d'Alene area a white supremacist camp.
No offense to the good people of Idaho. I just remember that there was a huge compound (camp?) near there where the W.S. would gather/commune.
So the bomber was on Spring break two years ago?
“Why would a city with only 3% blacks have a MLK parade?”
Well, there just may be some white folk who respect and want to honor Dr. King for his work to bring about desegragation and help passing the Civil Rights Acts.
Yah... but... I’m not so sure. The Aryan Nations folk have been pretty invisible for the last decade or so. If there’s even any left.
While they’re at it... check out the area mosques.
My first experience with Racism was in Spokane when I was in Pre-school. Me and my Brother went to a christian day care and it was a black minister and his wife who was white. One day we came to school and there was police there and some ass-hats had written racist things on the walls out side. That was the day I was taught never to hate any one for their color. But in my life I have seen it reversed more then what I saw in Spokane. It is sad to witness that then in the past 25 years see it turned around on us. Racism is wrong no matter who the perp is.
I’ll take “agent provocateur” for $200, Alex
They are long gone.
SEATTLE TIMES.com: "BOMB FOUND ON SPOKANE PARADE ROUTE WAS LETHAL, FBI SAYS" by Thomas Clouse, The Spokesman-Review (SNIPPET: "The bureau's terrorism task force is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for planting the bomb.")

It’s just that I live near Indy, which is over 25% black, and I’ve never heard of any parade on MLK day there, or anywhere for that part.
Post Traumatic Seahawk Syndrome
doesn’t pass the smell test. sounds like a set-up.
I googled that phrase exactly and didn’t see any other pictures with that T-shirt in it. It wasn’t quite any number of things that turned up — the “Treasure Island Music Festival 2009”, for example — and of course could be something that didn’t. So that ends my personal little investigation.
The additional text on the T-shirt that isn’t legible in that photo is certainly going to give them more of an idea what event it was, and of course the reason they’re showing it in the first place is for other people who attended whatever it was to call them and give them details of the event, maybe get pictures, etc.
Here’s another article with the official FBI “your assistance is requested” poster as a PDF. They say that there was even more stuff than those two shirts in the backpack.
The PDF has a bigger version of the same picture of the T-shirts, so now that text looks like “(something) (something) Theatre Group Presents Treasure Island 2009”. So that will take them right to the place on that one.
oops that would be Theatre School
WATCH MAYOR BLOOMBERG BET BOMBER HATES OBAMACARE
Not saying there are no crazy people around here, but to my knowledge most of the supremacist stereotype is only lore anymore.
Here’s one from a year ago in Spokane:
Yup. I thought he was a guy in a wheelchair upset over divorce. Was he was a white supremacist?
Butler lost his 20-acre "compound" in a lawsuit to some lady represented by the SPLC about eight or ten years ago. Butler died a couple of years later.
The whole five or six of his white supremacist associates left the area when the lawsuit ended.
Federal official says suspect arrested in case of bomb at Martin Luther King day parade
Published on March 9, 2011
SPOKANE, Wash. - A federal law enforcement official says a man has been arrested in the case of a bomb placed at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Spokane in January. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press that federal agents arrested the man Wednesday and are preparing to search a location tied to the man.
The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case ahead of an official announcement planned later in the day.
Additional details were not immediately available.
The bomb was found before it could explode and there were no injuries.
The news is poppin' pretty hard on this right now. They can't keep the perp secret forever.
That explains everything. /sarcasm
