Just got off the phone with my nyc source. In LE is all i will say. Cant say what agency. It is believed to be terrorism. Didnt read anything ftlrom media so i dont know what they are reporting. It was a pressure cooker set up with cell phone trigger it is believed
Is it possible that this was a test explosion by terrorists? For example, they're trying to perfect their bombing.
I don't know why, but when some asshat NYPD started yelling at people to get off the ****ing street, I literally yelled **** YOU at my monitor.
I understand if they're in the debris/evidence area of telling people to get back, but last I checked standing on a street corner isn't against the law.
For people with no skills/tools they are already made to lock and hold pressure.
Why pressure cookers? They aren't really for high pressures. Other than a latching lid they're probably no better than a regular pot.

Yeah, but that pressure is pretty low before the relief valve kicks in. I know it can't safely vent an explosion, but it's not like these guys are getting pipe bomb pressures out of a pressure cooker. I'd guess a regular pot with the lid held on with duct tape would act the same in an explosion.
The tin foil hatter in me thinks pressure cookers make better headlines than regular cookware so that's what the [STRIKE=CIA]CIA[/STRIKE] terrorists use.
And every time "the authorities" sit around jacking each other - and us - off about "not jumping to terrorist/Islamic/etc conclusions", Trump's "narrow" lead gets a little less "narrow" and a lot effin "wider and wider"...Hours after the explosion they know it is intentional but not terror related. Some F N wack job screaming Allah Akbar shoots up someplace and it's let's not jump to conclusions we do not have enough information......Uh ya and we are not helping this by reporting about it either. I give the F up
I don't know much about them but I would guess that they would remove the relief valve.
Doesn't mean it was Tannerite. Media does have a tendency to completely pull things out of their ass nowadays.
And if NYPD didn't have a history of illegally removing citizens from the streets I could be persuaded to believe this was the reason. But when they're on video saying a street is a constitution free zone they lose all credibilityIt actually is a common tactic. Blow a bomb then wait till first responders show up and a crowd forms, then light off the secondary device.
That's haji 101
