  1. The hypocrisy of America never gets old 😂🤣😭

  2. I hear you

    Spot on

  4. The cops forced the girlfriend to undergo a psychiatric evaluation for reporting him.

  5. By definition, that is a suicide bomber.

  6. Let’s not forget the woman that reported it because he threatened her. She was considered ‘crazy’ and sent off for psychological evaluation.

    • While I take your point, she may well have had a legitimate & urgent need for psychiatric care. The flipside, of course, is whether others with a legitimate urgent need receive care? Best wishes to yours.

    • well she was crazy. Either she made that up, or she dated a guy that built bombs for fun.

      When she was talking to the police.. she said he believed that 5g murders people, as well as saying that he believed there are lizard people.. I’m wondering if they want her evaluated because of how crazy she sounded.

  7. I’ve noticed that in interviews, they are pushing the “He was a really quiet guy” narrative.
    Call him what he really was, a domestic terrorist!

  8. 💯🇳🇿 worlds watching

  9. I thought so and mentioned it in previous post that there was something awfully strange about the reporting in the investigation of this. It turns out that once again a concerned Citizen notified law-enforcement, and they dropped the ball. The FBI was notified and the FBI dropped the ball. Fortunately only this guy was killed but it could’ve been much more catastrophic had he said his bomber during a busy time of the day. We were also told a lie because either the police or the FBI said this guy was not on their radar. We were lied to.
    The important thing we have to remember here is that the police were informed by a concerned Citizen and nothing was done until the bomb went off.

    • They just gently tapped on the door and was like “no one here” and just left. Never to do anything about it again.

    • T.R. Campbell *” The important thing we have to remember here is that the police were informed by a concerned Citizen and nothing was done until the bomb went off.”*
      This isn’t true and it isn’t the issue at hand. The police _did_ in fact follow up. They _did_ report it up the chain and to the FBI. However their own rules, dictated by “muh freedoms”, meant they couldn’t go on to his property or detain him without evidence…

      HOWEVER, if he were brown or black or had a name like Hassan, then the gloves would have come off. All procedural rules would have been tossed to one side and the cops would have jumped the fence in a heartbeat.

      I do agree however that the cops lied about having this guy on their radar. Either they lied or whatever internal rules they have meant that he dropped off the radar after a time with no evidence supporting the initial complaint.

      Either way the system failed, but it’s not true to claim the police did nothing. They followed their procedures which require them to err on the side of “muh freedoms”. But let’s not kid ourselves: if the guy were black or brown “muh freedoms” wouldn’t have stopped them going after him immediately.

      TL;DR – it’s complicated and completely f**ked up

      @Aj Meyers the police officials talked to the man’s attorney and he told them that his client wasn’t fond of police and didn’t want them searching his RV… Well that’s not at all concerning.. the system has indeed failed.. Nashville police said they did not have a terrorist task force and would rectify that.. they definitely failed

  10. Police : knock knock any bombs in here. Nope no bombs answered the door. Wtf

  11. this is why the police force is ineffective. we do not need double standards within a force that is here to “protect and serve.”


  13. Yeah, great police action! 👍 For you’re nonaction on a psycho!! 😔

  14. So we have Suicide bomber’s now. 😑

  15. So a black man gets shot dead in the driveway because of reports that a car is being run off and on on the property, and white man here don’t even get his door kicked down after being reported he was making 💣 in his rv… how much more intel do the cops need???

    • Of course the cops never do their jobs. Yet our politicians will say we need NEW laws to stop this from happening.

      Exactly, Nashville police officials said that they didn’t have a terrorist task force and are rectifying the situation.. I feel safer already 🙄🙄

  16. since when do you editorializing news

  17. Here’s where we lose the freedom from illegal search and seizure by the police under the guise of “protection”.

  18. Evert Vandenberghe | December 31, 2020 at 3:22 AM | Reply

    This is a good point. Pls, keep hitting that nail!

  19. Notice how he’s being referred to as the “Nashville Bomber” in the media but NOT a “Terrorist”… -__-
