Its good thing we now have 200,000 unionized TSA employees, because these things don’t happen any more.
yeah - good thing!
You could have 2,000,000 TSA employees, unionized or not, and it wouldn't matter.
The bad guys are already here.
iT WAS A DELI....someone passed gas after eating a huge Pastrami sandwich!
Shut down all the Ohio airports, put up checkpoints on the interstates, cordon off a 20 mile radius around the police HQ, order citizens to shelter in place, go door to door with SWAT teams, make statement to the press calling for gun control and gun registration, restart gun control legislation in the state and in congress, Dear Leader to go on national TV demanding gun control for the children, and blaming gun owners and NRA members for the tragedy.
It doesn’t matter if it was an explosion, gun owners must be held responsible.
Evidently mayor Coleman’s wife is on another binge.
You could be right. There were very few details in the reports.
Anyone hear about suspicious road closings in Ohio recently?
As in - no accidents that caused the road closing?
Just check google maps an enable the traffic layer
This is the kind of thing happening on the east coast. No apparent reason to close the tunnels according to other reports.

Dept Of Homeland Security Sets Up Roadblocks At 2 Virginia Tunnels On September 11th
In 1970 some guy took a bomb into the Shaker Heights, Ohio, police station and leveled the place. Here’s a quote from a reporter talking about his rookie assignment:
“My first assignment was at the police beat for six months. I wasnt there a month, maybe two, and I got a call. I worked the 3 to midnight shift and I got a call saying thered been an explosion at the Shaker Heights police station. The building was gone by the time I got there. It was gone. Some nut had blown it up. Only a few people died, I think. Talk about baptism by fire.”
I’ve been looking for pics but haven’t found any yet.
Have shut down other police buildings out of caution. Announced there is no sign this is terrorism.
Is Bill Ayers accounted for?
Bill Ayers ? He’s a professor now...probably someone in his class....?
I’d finger his wife for the crime but I’d require several cans of disinfectant.
Terrorism task force is responding per Fox 28. Sweeping building for bomb. Bomb sniffing dog showed interest in a car. Streets closed for several blocks.
Thanks for the updates!
I would bet it was a three hundred pound cop, five burritos, and a 64 ounce big gulp that went bang.
Yes, according to the talking heads, they have found no damage, just people reporting a burnt black powder smell.
Someone mentioned that it may have been a distraction to busy up law enforcement while some horrible crime was being committed elsewhere.
Thank you for the ping, Whenifhow.
