Bomb capable of lethal impact - Spokesman.com - Jan. 19, 2011
Funny you should say that, they have a suitcase that was left on a corner this morning, it just happening right now. Part of downtown is shut down again.
And in this area it usually isn't a liberal.
It is usually a FAR right wing nut job who lives up in the mountains, someone like Kehoe's or Mcveigh.
Had to be first, didn't you?
This makes me feel so much better.
News from The Associated Press
SEATTLE — A suspicious backpack found Monday along the route of a march honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in Spokane, Wash., contained a live bomb that was “likely capable of inflicting multiple casualties,” federal investigators said Tuesday.
The package, found before the morning march, prompted law enforcement to ask march officials to change their route and several businesses to evacuate as investigators sent in bomb-smelling dogs, a robot and specially trained officers.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation said the bomb was neutralized at the scene. It was found on a bench at North Washington Street and West Main Avenue.
“We’re certainly approaching it as a potential domestic terrorism event at this point,” said Frank Harrill, the F.B.I.’s supervisory senior resident agent in Spokane.
“Whether the motive was racial or an individual was being targeted, it’s too soon to say,” he said.
The device, partially concealed by clothing in a Swiss Army-brand backpack, was reported to police about 9:25 a.m. by a contract worker whose duties included helping to maintain a nearby parking lot, Mr. Harrill said. The worker apparently handled the bag and took photographs of it and sent the photographs to the police, Mr. Harrill said.
The F.B.I. is offering a $20,000 reward for information about the identity of anyone seen with the backpack. The agency is also seeking photographs or video taken in the area that morning.
This strikes me as odd...he suspected the bag enough to call police but handled it anyways?
Having worked for the city in Spokane, and at a park about two blocks from where the back pack was found, they find back packs a lot. I am glad I never found a bomb opening them.
One of the shirts found which could have been purchased at Goodwill or something was from Stevens county, which is just north of where I live. The Kehoe brothers who bombed city hall here in Spokane and had ties to McVeigh, grew up in Stevens county. There is also a lot of wackos who live up in the mountains up there.
um, why would anyone suspect either a liberal or a conservative in this?
