New York Police Fail to Find Clue
Monday, October 10, 2005
(SNN New York) After a weekend of heightened security resulting from a Homeland Security memo, no credible evidence has been found indicating the memo had any relationship to reality.
there are very serious doubts about the credibility of this specific threat
"The intelligence community has been able to determine that there are very serious doubts about the credibility of this specific threat," said homeland security department spokesperson Russ Knocke. While Knocke’s statement may seem confusing at first, what he is actually saying is that he has no idea what’s going on.
The specific threat involved remote control bombs being placed on the New York Subway system. So far three suspects have been arrested in connection with the alleged plot, all of them in Iraq. Sources say authorities are investigating whether the three possess a very, very, very powerful remote control device.
Mayor Bloomberg rode the subway to Yankee Stadium
Sunday night, to show solidarity with his fellow New Yorkers, Mayor Bloomberg rode the subway to see the Yankees. Bloomberg was searched thoroughly by police officers before getting on the subway. Due to heightened security, the mayor was only mugged three times on his we to Yankee Stadium.
Mayor Bloomberg defends his decision to raise security levels in the subway, and has not yet to lower security to previous levels. The mayor says at the end of the day, he's the one in charge of keeping New Yorkers safe.
However, while this scenario has not panned out, Homeland Security is already working on some new suggestions. A new possible threat involves Republican Guard Colonel Al-Mustard in the New York Public Library with the revolver, or possibly the lead pipe.
