And now a suspicious vehicle in midtown Manhattan.

The NYC bomb squad is checking out a Mercedes that's been parked since 6AM Easter time... it appears the trunk is weighted down...they've blocked off ten blocks around the area...

  • Until the tough talk returns and people know the USA says what it means and means what it says, we will live in fear. If this is another botched attempt to bomb, a dry run to see what will happen, or maybe just psychological warfare, we have to pay attention. When people understand that they will be hunted down and prosecuted to the full extend of the law, they will stop. This "warm, fuzzy, soft kind" America is becoming more and more a target. We have to search for the enemy within and stop letting our boarder hemorrhage onto our soil. Some of the things "bleeding" in mean to do us harm. That is why they are here.

  • Wait, the car has been parked there since EASTER?! LOL Couldn't resist! :o)


    Anywho...I will wait and reserve judgment for when the truth comes out about who is the current owner of the vehicle.

  • Wonder if someone is in for a MAJOR parking ticket? At least it wasn't a bomb or a body in the car. (I was leaning toward body, myself.)

    I was thinking drugs... You know couple 100lbs of something would weigh down a trunk. It's common to do dead man drops in expensive vehicles. (for those who don't know... dead man drop is where you park a drug vehicle(full of drugs) and leave it waiting for the buyer to pick it up).

  • Well....they are serious about investigating if they looked at a car, thought it looked funny and shut down 10 blocks in Manhattan, aren't they? "Soft and Fuzzy America"? HA. Doesn't look that way to me and it never has.
