Suspected IED device detonated in Dumpster in NYC's Chelsea district. Unconfirmed yet as to cause. Pipe bomb hit New Jersey earlier tonight. Terrorism possibility. This will surely have a bearing on polls as election heads into final weeks.

If the media had its way they would say Trump was spotted throwing something into a dumpster from his limo and Hillary threw herself in harms way to prevent it.

You're spot on there. Just google Hillary Clinton and then do the same for Trump. All the news stories related to Clinton are praise, while 90% of Trump's are damning him. I have never seen such unfair coverage of an election.

At least 25 injured:

At least 25 people have been injured in an explosion in New York City, officials say.


Fire trucks and ambulances converged on the scene after what witnesses described as a "deafening" blast in the Chelsea district of Manhattan around 21:00 (01:00 GMT on Sunday).

Still unconfirmed cause. Mall explosion in Virginia is not though to be terrorism btw. It is a suspected generator explosion. NYC explosion likely terrorism.

Yes ... appears most of the injuries were caused by scattered glass.

Unconfirmed reports said the blast went off in a dustbin, smashing the windows in a nearby building.

The New York Police Counterterrorism Bureau confirmed that it was investigating and shared an image on Twitter that appeared to show a damaged dustbin.

Wouldn't matter storybud1, he could stand in the middle of Fifth Ave and shoot someone and not lose votes.

It kinda says soooo much about the media protest vote that is accounting for Trumps bump, nobody trusts the media anymore, they simply lie , they are just not connected to the average Joe anymore, they only serve the elite and the smug liberals.

For a clown like Trump to be in the running the media must the laughing stock in average Joe's eyes, sure look at our own clown in the Aras ? he ONLY got in because of the Frontline stitch up, he was at least 10% behind, was out of it, Pat Kenny surely will reveal the ridiculous scenario in his memoirs.

NYPD saying they are investing a possible 2nd device on 27th between 6th and 7th.

Ufff.. what a world.

Thank goodness nobody has been killed.

Good luck to all in NY.

Mayor De Blasio on TV now saying there is no evidence of a terrorist connection... but also saying that the indications are that it was an intentional act. (?!)

Fox News reporting that the second device (on 27th) is a pressure cooker.

Reports: Several hurt in Minnesota mall incident | 11alive.com

Hopefully not related to anything but another incident is unfolding in St. Cloud, Minnesota.. multiple stabbings, one dead (believed to be the suspect).

Harley and Tama Exsted of Isle, who were in St. Cloud to watch their son play in a college golf tournament at Blackberry Ridge, were in the mall when the incident occurred.

"All of a sudden I heard pop pop pop," Harley said. "I thought someone tipped over a shelf. All of a sudden these people started running. I just saw everybody running our way."

The couple escaped unharmed and said they helped another woman who was running from the scene to her car.

Don't know much about him TBH, but even considering that it's early days in the investigation, it came across as a mixed message.
Yeah look him up. A nasty cop hating piece of far left filth.

And he reckons despite it looking intentional, it's not terrorism.

Muppet.

That"s not unfair coverage.
That's accurate reporting.
Trump is a demagogue who has twiced implied assasination of Clinton.
Who places hate at the centre of his campaign.
Who praises Putin, who wants to build a wall with US' ally & trading partner.

I hold no great love for Clinton. Trump is off the scale & a danger.
