    I'm pretty sure sane folk will have no idea why someone thought this to be a good idea.

    I hope it can't be traced to radical Muslims. If it is? There will be lots more attacks like this. Lots more.

    If it's some crazy **** living in his mom's basement, at least we only have copycats and other crazy ****s to worry about rather than an organized movement.

    Just a lone psycho who wants to see people die? Those are the worst. The ones that dont really have a reason.
    If a psycho kills in such a public manner, he too would want to inflict his contorted reasoning on everyone.

    In today's world of social media, the lack of claiming responsibilty is the strangest thing about this.

    teen vandalism rarely has a person claiming credit.

    I have not seen anybody suggest it, but kids do play with bomb making devices from time to time.

    so many possibilities exist, seems pointless to speculate.

    There's nothing that can mask an odor for dogs?

    Makes sense on why the dogs may have missed the scent.

    Fill us in.

    Not trying to be a jerk here, but I don't believe that it can be done.

    It's difficult and you may or may not catch ONE determined individual crossing. Then again, it's like the lottery in that you absolutely cannot win if you don't play.

    Yes, by using a much stronger scent common in the local environment. Coffee is good or if you're near a food establishment the choices are broad. Bacon grease is another good one if you're in a breakfast place.

    Yes. Vandalism, the most pointless crime, is wide spread. I guess the "reward" is knowing you've caused misery. I'll stick out my neck here and say that this bombing was for the "fun" of it and has no actual purpose other than causing grief.

    I'll be amazed if they ever catch these people unless they decide to put it on Facebook.

    Humans. Monkeys using forks.
