If IT CAN Happen Here, IT CAN Happen Anywhere

For those of you remaining in the "it can't happen here" crowd; let CNN serve up this story as a reminder. I actually read this a few days ago and forgot to post it. The scenario is that an improvised explosive device was detonated inside a prison during a search. Although no one was injured, it is another reminder of the relative ease of construction and obtaining materials for an improvised explosive device (IED) or homemade chemical bomb can be.

If some motivated inmate, presumably with limited access to materials and under salience, can construct an IED...what makes you think your community is going to remain free from this type of event.

If the term "Domestic Terrorism" is not in your vocabulary...put it there today.
