NYC: Amputee Arrested in Alleged Bomb Attempt – Harlem Station

Gee, this was all over the news yesterday, no wonder I missed it.


An amputee missing both legs was arrested Thursday after police said he was wheeled into a busy New York City train station and planted a bomb.

Police found the bomb before it could detonate, but the discovery interrupted regional train lines briefly and closed the station for several hours.

The alleged device—a bag of small explosives wrapped in shotgun shells, along with bullets, glue, lug nuts, pens and a ruler—was left in a waiting area at a station in Harlem. Police later surveyed security videos to identify suspects including, Roosevelt Terry, the amputee.

Debbie Schlussel has more - nothing to see here, move along.
