    NEW YORK – Police have cleared streets around Times Square after finding a cooler left on a sidewalk on the same block where a failed car bomb was found over the weekend.

    NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says police have created some distance between the cooler and people. He says they are "in an abundance of caution" and looking into whether the cooler was abandoned by someone.

    Browne says no buildings have been ordered evacuated. Three blocks around Times Square were closed as a precaution because the cooler was found about a block from where a failed car bomb was found Saturday night.

    No other details were immediately available. The call was received about 1:15 p.m.

    Could it be a diversion from a real plan?

    X-ray scan was inconclusive, time to take a closer look.

    I advise you to get as far away from it as possible and send in the dogs!

    Aren't those deadly?
    They're not allowed to be carried on to an aircraft, ya know?!!
    :lol:
    Shows people will call in suspicious packages and the media will flock.
    Which isn't, necessarily, a bad thing

    probably some homeless guy trying to make money, got busted for solicitation or some other contrived charge and they left his cooler behind. yee-haw! makes me want to just call up the police benevolent association to make a big contribution.
