    Default Election day bombing stopped

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/ny-man-bu...-officials-say

    Federal officials have charged a New York man with manufacturing an explosive device, saying he planned to set off a 200-pound bomb at the National Mall in Washington on Election Day, killing himself and possibly many others.

    Paul Rosenfeld, 56, was arrested on Tuesday after the Department of Justice was tipped off by an unidentified person in Pennsylvania who claimed Rosenfeld sent text messages and letters stating that he “planned to build an explosive device” that would go off on Nov. 6 as a way to “draw attention to his political belief in ‘sortation.’”

    Sortation is an ancient Greek method of randomly selecting government officials.

    According to the U.S. Attorney Office in the Southern District of New York, Rosenfeld was stopped by law enforcement while driving on Tuesday and taken in for questioning; he reportedly told investigators that he'd ordered "large quantities of black powder – an explosive substance – over the internet, which he transported from a location in New Jersey to his home in Tappan, New York.”

    He also told officials that he built the bomb to “ensure” that he would also die in the attack.

    When authorities searched Rosenfeld’s house they discovered a functional explosive device that weighed about 200-pounds.

    Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. said that the suspect “planned to detonate a large explosive to kill himself and draw attention to his radical political beliefs.”

    “Had he been successful, Rosenfeld’s alleged plot could have claimed the lives of innocent bystanders and caused untold destruction.

    Hmmmm an body borne IED...who would have imagined?

    And someone mentioned in the other thread that the likelihood of a body borne IED was low....in 1900 the likelihood of seeing an automobile on the road was low....but as time went on it got more and more common. Our fear is that THIS will be more common and THAT is why departments are changing ROE....

    The “large amount of black powder” was 8 lbs. It is hard to imagine 8 lbs of black powder could do untold destruction. I wonder what the other 192 lbs was.

    They should have a special park in DC where people can go to kill themselves to “make a statement”. Suicide park.
