    Default Police shut down Times Square tonight due to "failed device" (potential car bomb)

    (Last night) Times Square has been shut down and the NYPD bomb squad is investigating a suspicious package, reports WCBS.

    Car and pedestrian traffic has been blocked off between 44th and 46th Streets, from Broadway to Seventh Avenue while police use a robot to inspect the package found in the backseat of a burning car.


    "It appears to be a car bomb left in a Pathfinder between Seventh and Eighth," Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said, according to the New York Times. The device, which apparently failed to explode, nonetheless contained "explosive elements," including "propane tanks, some kind of powder, gasoline and a timing device," Browne said, adding, "This is very much an active investigation."


    Earlier, a Reuters reported that a firefighter saw "a flash" and a "mini-explosion" from the back of the SUV. Meanwhile, the NYT reported that the NYPD told Homeland Security to step down, and that they did not consider the device to be an act of terrorism; they have since stricken that news from their report, however.]

    The square was evacuated around 8 pm.


    No injuries were reported.

    From what I gathered, the "bomb" was made of like a bunch of gas cans and some fireworks. Hardly seems like a professional job.



    Hey look, Japan made a movie about me!

    There is currently some speculation that because it was parked outside the Viacom building that it may have some connection to the controversal South Park episode that had depicted the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.
