Did You Know Someone Left a Bomb at a MLK Parade in Spokane?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 20, 2011 at 2:42 PM


Short Form Blog has an interesting recap of a story that for some reason ended up buried beneath media types being disproportionately shocked over Ricky Gervais' hosting the Golden Globes:

Inside this backpack was a bomb. Not just any kind of bomb. An incredibly sophisticated bomb the likes of which law enforcement officials haven’t seen, loaded with shrapnel that was designed to hurt people. Worse, the bomb was placed in a position that was designed to attack a parade route in Spokane, Wash. The bomb was designed to be remotely controlled. And wanna know what that parade route was for? That’s right, an MLK Day parade. So why is this story getting underplayed?

Now, the FBI believes that the bomb might have placed by white supremacists. This seems like sort of a big deal, right?
