Investigator on MLK Parade Bomb: ‘The Worst Device I’ve Ever Seen’

US News • Views: 29,328

The Associated Press has a report from an unnamed official in the investigation into the bomb discovered on the route of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Spokane, who says it was the most potentially destructive device he had ever seen — a sophisticated IED with a remote detonator.

“They haven’t seen anything like this in this country,” the official said. “This was the worst device, and most intentional device, I’ve ever seen.”

There have also been reports that the bomb was packed with shrapnel to maximize injuries, and placed on a concrete bench to direct the full force of the blast toward the parade marchers. This was an extremely serious attempt at mass murder, and we’re very lucky the backpack was spotted by city employees before the parade began.

The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s).
