Thousands evacuated from NY mall in bomb scare

NEW YORK, July 20 (Reuters) - Thousands of people were evacuated from one of the largest malls in the United States on Wednesday in a bomb scare that shut the suburban New York shopping plaza for 3-1/2 hours, police said.

The evacuation followed the discovery of a package that looked like a bomb in a third-floor men's room in the Palisades Center mall in West Nyack, New York, 30 miles (48 km) northwest of New York City.

The device, which turned out not to be an explosive, was destroyed in a controlled detonation, said Clarkstown police spokesman Lt. Anthony Ovchinnikoff.

Police from several nearby towns assisted by state police and the Rockland County Sheriff's Department joined in the operation along with local fire departments, emergency services and police helicopters, which circled overhead the sprawling shopping center.

1. Fear run amok.
Sad.

We used to feel relatively safe,...until the bushco/neocon regime made us less safe here at home and abroad.

2. Relax, take a deep breath,
calm down. :beer: You cannot let them make you live you life in fear. If you do, then they have won. And I don't just mean Alqeada either.
