Backpacks have far greater use than just for hiking.
They are made for carrying things.
Whether that be to a sporting event or to take a persons shopping home, or shoes and clothing to work, they serve a far greater purpose than for just hiking.
there's way to do so.
Anyway, the news has been reporting that one of the backpacks sat there in plain view for over an hour before it went off (see photo).
However, that backpack doesn't look very black like the one they're now showing torn to pieces.....
Was the news jumping to conclusions.....again? Kinda looks like it.
The fact that no one noticed unattended backpack(s) suggests that Sen. Mitch McConnell was right, American's have become complacent.
I have a better idea.... How about the American Public get our heads out of our asses and start paying some attention to what's going on around us? I don't know about anywhere else, but here in Massachusetts the state has been promoting a program for people to speak up when they see something out of the ordinary. Bags left unattended are on that list. In a crowd like that it's more difficult to recognize these things sometimes, but we as citizens need to start getting involved in our own safety. If something looks out of place, tell somebody about it. Don't assume that "It's nothing".
Oh I get it...kid shoots and kills other kids with assault (style) weapon, and "we" want to ban assault (style) weapons..
Backpacks (maybe) used to transport explosives....lets ban backpacks...
I see what you're doing there.....
