Terrorists continue to plant bombs in New York and New Jersey.
From NBC News:
A device exploded early Monday as a bomb squad robot examined a backpack that appeared to contain pipe bombs near an Elizabeth transit station, Mayor Chris Bollwage said.
A spokesman for Bollwage earlier said the explosion was a controlled detonation, but at a news briefing a few minutes later, Bollwage said the robot was "cutting into the device when it exploded."
"This was an explosive device" containing as many as five explosives, he said. "Based on the loudness, I think people could have been severely hurt or injured if they had been in the vicinity."
...Bollwage said he was "extremely concerned for the residents of the community" if "someone could just go and drop a backpack into a garbage can that has multiple explosives in it."
Here's video of the mayor describing the situation:

So, two guys were digging through trash in a waste basket and thought they found something of value. They retrieved it from the trash and later discovered it had wires and a pipe. They dropped the package and went to the police station to report what they found.
How fortunate is it that those two guys found the package, the BOMB, and notified police?
They saved who knows how many people from harm. Good job!
It doesn't seem like this is going to stop anytime soon.
Eventually, one of these bombs will explode as it did in Chelsea. The danger is real.
Apparently, these terrorists didn't get the memo that everyone is living in harmony now because Obama is president.
It must be residual anger from the Bush years. That would explain why some nutjob or group of nutjobs wants to kill innocent people.
When is Obama going to address the nation about this weekend of terrorist attacks in our country?
