  1. They really think they’re not going to get caught?

      The government set this up the way they did 911. How tf you can’t find suspects unless they’ll blame and payoff a black man again saying he did it

      @Woo Cainwrong, this has Chinas fanger prints all over it. that voice on tha loudspeaker sounded like a chinese accent. Joe Byedone is a Chinese puppet

    • @hillbilly beer dranker Wrong Chinese people can hardly drive a small car let alone an Rv. Definitely Trump-Russia-Maga notice Trump is MIA.

    The bomb exploded with police were surrounding the van…someone, somewhere, was watching them. Domestic terrorism. Again.

    • @rwhunt99 but it also sows fear and violence is always a last way to get across espically for a politcal point

    • The BLM movement

    • We reap what we sow. The last many years I have seen satanic hatred spewed out from the mouths of most everyone in USA. Let alone your systemic racism and vile aggression toward all.

      I bet it was one of Trump’s GOOFY, DERANGED Supporters at it again. Can’t win an election, now they switch to blowing SH!T up. smh

  3. Wow who would ever be grateful for a shots fired call to try to Head this off. Good lord. What has become of our country?

    • @Josh Young do they? That made the hair on my neck stand up like Pervy Joe’s on his legs…when he learned about roaches.

    • @josh esquivel it’s not as much about Trump as it is about the anti-American communistic Democrats.

      @Bruce Smith you been smoking too much kraken there son.

      c2itccase9: Russian state media (Putin) offered trump asylum if his charges with any crime. Sounds like his in the bed with a Communist leader. Russia placed boundaries on U.S. forces and Russians hack top U.S. governments departments computers and 45 is silent. However you can continue places it all on the Democrats or the fake media if that makes you feel better. But if trump placed one of his golf clubs up your behind you would still place the blame on someone else. Have a good life.

    • It always WAS a shithole. Now you have woken up and seen it for the vile society that it truly is. No surprises anymore……

  4. When you pardon murderers thats what you get. Please stay safe

      @Christ Follower GRU FANCY BEAR ACCOUNT Russian disinformation toy

      @RocketmanRockyMatrix proud boys are a GRU funded terrorist organization

    • mr Pepperidge Farms | December 25, 2020 at 8:42 PM | Reply

      @RocketmanRockyMatrix proud boys and bigot slime like you make me ashamed to call myself a conservative….. You’re the kind problem we helped the German people get rid of in WW2…..

    • I know when we traded several terrorists for Berghda

    • mr Pepperidge Farms | December 25, 2020 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      @William Condon the blackwater murderers were convicted for killing innocent children….. LOTS OF EVIDENCE….. Pardoning them destroys a decade of hard fought credibility….. Betraying our Kurdish allies destroys a decade of hard-fought partnership…. I have military friends that commited suicide after watching their Kurdish allies get executed by Turkish controlled ISIS forces…..

  5. Some of Diaper Don’s “very fine people”. Watch and see.

  6. Intentional? You mean as in “the opposit of the accidental explosion of that bomb you were traveling around with”?

    • In Washington d.c., two weekends ago the terrorist proud Boyz and Trump terror tourists burned property at 4 churches including 2 historic African American churches. We’ve already seen the maga terror tourists in d.c. These people will destroy America if they cannot have their dictator Trump.

    • @Juan Conrad I wouldn’t jump to conclusions tho, as i’m from Europe, when i hear “bomb + christmas”, i’m like “hmm… is allah being great again?”. But i certainly am worried about the situation with your current madman in chief as well… For now, let’s just all be just happy that no human casualties were involved, building are just buildings, made and rebuilt; can’t rebuild people!

    • good one.

      @jollyandwaylo no they didn’t mention no meth in the RV

  7. these were probably some of the “good people” – the american alkaida

    Thank Goodness for our police officers. I hope those injured will be okay. Other should stay alert. These are not normal times. Thank you police officers.

  9. I’m no stable genius but, somebody wants to trigger martial law.

  10. good on them for being alert officers, saved some lives

      @YouTube Moderator We want the military defunded as well, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want national defense. It means we want responsible military action that isn’t wasteful and doesn’t unnecessarily result in the deaths of American citizens.

      @Elias Boudinot You’re a victim of government propaganda

    • LAST WILL BE THE FIRST | December 25, 2020 at 9:46 PM | Reply

      @YouTube Moderator Its not about the police they keep awarding. Who knows the cops probably did just to get recognition. Its there job to protect and serve anyway

    • @NoneOfYour Beeswax Really? Officers were alert enough to choose to go into buildings warning residents to evacuate. They didn’t wait for other authorities to evaluate the situation. They went into harms way not knowing anything other than a threat of an bomb was made. They didn’t know if it was a prank, an M80 or a freaking dirty bomb. The officers, who started evacuations probably broke quite a few protocols doing so. Because, they acted quickly, lives were saved, injuries were kept to minimum.

    • @YouTube Moderator You have no clue what defund the police even means. Coming from the county, which has been used as the model of defund the police. I know what I’m talking about. I know what my taxes are paying for. Defund the police does not mean get rid of police. It means the specific police divisions are so broken, they need to be dissolved. In Camden, NJ, there was corruption, lack of proper funding (80% of the city is in poverty) and police were ineffective. So the Camden City Police Department was abolished. The State police provided policing in the city until the Camden County Police took over. Camden County Police were funded, by the county, to be the police for Camden. They were able to create the programs necessary to become an effective police force. They even hired some of the Camden officers. They didn’t have to fight to change old, ineffective mindsets. It was set up to be present and participate in the community. Because of the new police force, crime has dropped dramatically. People cooperate with the police. There are still problems because we are talking about extreme poverty, which facilitates crime but it’s nothing like being considered one of the worst crime cities it used to be.

    There are so many cameras on 2nd ave , we will see who done this .

  12. We call events like this “terrorism” when it happens in other countries, here it’s called “intentional”.

  13. There was a loudspeaker warning it was going to explode in 15 minutes. What makes them think it was intentional?

  14. RV started playing audio clip “This area must be evacuated” in loop before exploding.

  15. Trump could be behind this because he wants to declare a state of emergency to overturn the election.

  16. Let’s see which brand of crazy pulled this one

  17. Nice to see everyone’s has their eyes open and we’re all on the same page!

  18. I blame trump, newsmax, and infowars.

  19. Just when Trump is toying with the
    Idea of Imposing Martial Law. 🤔

  20. Had this been in the Middle East they would’ve said “terrorist” instead of “intentional.”
