3. Seems an earlier pronouncement of 'not suspicious' was premature

As per the thread in LBN.

5. I wonder what it was about the car that caused the police to call for the bomb squad

before the explosion.

12. Maybe I read too many crime mysteries but

What comes to mind it that they called it in to get police close by before exploding it.

I donít know how close they were but itís surprising no one was killed (that we know of yet anyway)

Using government explosives for political reasons? Could trump with one of his groups be involved, and be behind this?

17. Suspicious vehicle (RV) called in, it explodes with police on scene and bomb squad on the way

Search all the security video cams in the area and cell phone data. See if anybody takes credit for the bombing.

Why Nashville?

24. Nashville is hardly NY or Hollywood.

There are never that many people walking around. I think it might be a test.

29. Have you been to downtown Nashville lately?

Broadway is the hottest spot (hard to walk the sidewalks there's so many people) but 2nd is still pretty busy, when it's not 6:30am on Christmas morning.

38. Yes, and I agree

It doesnít seem like the right time and place to blow something up if youíre trying to hurt people.

20. I look at trump now more than ever,

To have incited one of his domestic terror groups he has close ties to behind this act of terror. Was it to declare marshal law with ? Nothing would surprise me from trump at this point.

26. I immediately thought of trump calling up his boys.

I think he made some sort of remarks about the streets of DC being a wild scene during the tally of electoral votes in Congress. Then I read that the Facebook pages of RW extremists like the Proud Boys were openly making plans to hit the streets since their Fuhrer was calling them up.

This is all according to my faulty memory and impressions I got.

Anyway, that's my long way of saying I agree with you. I'm just trying to figure out why Nashville?

ETA: haha, I'm following WKRN live news and they said trump is praying for everyone! Oh brother

30. In Looking At The Pictures...

...I'm long distance surmising this was not a very big device.
In the picture showing up most commonly, there is on tree knocked down, and 2 more badly charred.
There are another 7 or 8 trees that appear to be undamaged although they appear to be within 50 feet of the tree on the ground.
The depression in the pavement is very modest. Remember at OKC, the crater under the truck was nearly 4 feet deep, 12 feet or so around. Of course, that was roughly a ton of AnFo. A big(!) Device.
Also, this seems to have been intended to limit danger to life, as 6:30 on a Christmas morning is Tue best time to blow something up and not hurt many people.
Lastly, the blast was felt 9 blocks away. In OKC, it was more like 3 miles and the pressure wave falls exponentially with distance.
Edit: I heard audio of the blast just now on CNN. The rumble only lasted about 3 seciponds, and the pitch of the initial crack was low. Either subsonic or barely supersonic.
I'll guess a hundred pounds.

34. What?

Seems obvious that I was comparing the scale of destruction.
We know for sure that OKC was 1-1.2 tons of AnFo. So, that's the basis for comparison.
And, I did say a hundred pounds. If it was a backpack bomb, they wouldn't have need the RV.
A hundred pounds is a lot, but not huge. The Abrams fires a 40# shell. So, I'm guessing 2.5 of those.

32. Video including audio of 'evacuation' alert and explosion



Very fishy that an audible alert would be telling people to evacuate right before the blast

ďALL BUILDINGS IN THIS AREA MUST BE EVACUATED NOW.Ē
ďIF YOU CAN HEAR THIS MESSAGE EVACUATE NOW.Ē

That ainít the cops. Thatís some dystopian murder shit.
