The State can't keep us safe

Postby bignflnut » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:37 pm

A Boston immigrantwas charged Sunday night after Boston police and the FBI say he set off an explosion at his East Boston apartment early Sunday morning.

Although the explosion that blew out windows and caused an evacuation of the neighboring building occurred very early Sunday morning, police withheld the suspect’s name for over 12 hours, later identifying him as Tomas Mikula, 28.

According to police and the FBI, Mikula, who is believed to be from Czech Republic, was “playing” with bomb making materials when he set off an explosion in his second floor apartment on Webster Street, which blew out the windows and walls of his apartment, sending debris and glass onto the street.

As a result of the explosion, Mikula sustained second-degree burns and was later transported to and hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital.

When police, FBI, and ATF investigators searched Mikula’s apartment, they found bomb making materials, including PVC pipe, chemical compounds, along with a rifle, two handguns, and 100 rounds of ammunition.

However, despite the overwhelming evidence that Miklua was making explosives inside his apartment, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said, “We don’t believe there’s anything to do with terrorism. It’s just someone who has some weapons in there & is playing around w/ chemicals &, you know, some powder, & it looks like that blew up on him.”


Late Sunday evening, Mikula was charged with unlawful possession of explosives, unlawful possession of an incendiary device, willful ignition/discharge of a destructive or incendiary device, unlawful possession of a firearm (handgun), unlawful possession of a firearm (rifle), unlawful possession of ammunition, and unlawful possession of a high capacity firearm.

Perhaps a better subject line might be...

"The State won't keep us safe"

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Talk about stupidity in justice system this guy had bomb making materials, blew up his apartment making God only knows what type of device...his bail is 200K!!! But if he makes bail, don't worry, he won't be allowed back in his apartment (the one that was blown up). He will have to surrender his passport (this will stop him from crossing any border at the WALL...oops doesn't exist). What do you mean the government can't keep us safe?
