First, they have to make sure the perps aren’t Islamic...
THEN they’ll call it terrorism.....
Terrorists don’t always “make demands”, sometimes they just want to kill people.
I know.. The paragraphs contradict each other.. Typical Lib Speak.
Our local Walmart was emptied yesterday, on a bomb threat. Someone found a pink flashlight near a trash can. Turns out it was a pink flashlight.
Back in the 1600s, when life was cheap, it was considered fun to disguise a small bomb as a money bag and leave it on the road for unsuspecting passersby.
You know, a bomb in a flashlight would really hurt someone. Minor injuries?
Are we talking about cherry bombs?
May be it’s a high schooler who paid attention in chemistry class and got bored now that summer’s here?
Exactly....but since the war on terror is over...nothing to see here. Move along, move along.
Uh, this *is* the ATF, guys.
The same ATF who routinely spread lies that turn the basements, gun collections and prepper stores into “arsenals” and “bunkers” and their owners into paranoid, anti-government loners.
I’m not going to believe these things are destructive devices made with the intent to cause serious bodily injury or death rather than some idiotic prank until I see hard evidence.
This could be as simple as some kid cutting up a few sparklers or match heads and wiring them into the circuit with a simple igniter.
I think the key to the story is that the gov’t lackey “declined” to identify the “explosive.”
A terrorist would be using some home brew high explosive compound (TATP etc.) or at least smokeless/flash powder packed along with shrapnel.
If these “devices” had been of such a nature I doubt they’d be so cagey as to what is really going on.
I’d wager this is much ado about very little.. the gov’t cooking up hysteria in order to keep people in a state of fear and dependence.
