A mass of hundreds of London cops are on a manhunt, trying to catch the people who set off a “homemade bomb” on a busy London subway train during morning rush hour.
No one died, but 22 people were injured and it caused a panic.
The bomb was concealed inside a plastic bucket in a grocery freezer bag. It was set off around 8:20 am while the train was at Parsons Green station in southwest London.
The explosion wasn’t large and the people weren’t very seriously hurt, but it’s causing panic and justifying a response from the government for being an alleged terror attack.
This of course comes after 5 previous Britain terror attacks this year, which gave Prime Minister Theresa May the excuse to try and crack down on the internet.
Headlines were made about Theresa May trying to capitalize on the violence a few months ago in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack:
The blast occurred in an “affluent” area of the city, but if you think about it, wealthy people aren’t going to be riding the train.
According to Associated Press:
“It was not a large explosion, and British police and health officials said none of the injured was thought to be seriously hurt. Yet police said it was a terrorist attack, the fifth in Britain this year.
Six hours later, the Metropolitan Police force said there had been no arrests, but hundreds of detectives, aided by intelligence agents, were looking at surveillance camera footage in the subway, carrying out forensic work and speaking to witnesses.”
It is good that no one was seriously injured, but this will no doubt be abused by people in power to try and justify cracking down on the UK citizens.
Theresa May has already stated that she wants to censor the internet, and it would take more investigation to determine what they will try and justify next on the back of this terror attack. They never “let a good crisis go to waste.”
She is set to give a speech about it soon: then we will probably find out what they’re trying to justify next.
