    Port Authority Blast Suspect Is From Bangladesh, Lived In Brooklyn
    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/12/...error-suspect/
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A suspect carrying a crudely-assembled improvised bomb is in custody following a blast in the underground walkway between Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal Monday morning.

    The blast happened at around 7:19 a.m. during Monday morning rush hour.

    At least three other people were injured and their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

    The suspect was carrying a photo ID on him with the name Akayed Ullah.

    He is in his 20s, from Bangladesh and had been living in Brooklyn. He was injured when the device apparently went off prematurely and was rushed to Bellevue Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

    A second device was found on the suspect, police said.

    Port Authority Police Officer Jack Collins held the suspect at gunpoint assisted by officers Sean Gallagher and Anthony Manfredi.

    The crudely-made device had wires protruding from it.

    A federal law enforcement official says the device malfunctioned — it did not fully detonate, according to the official.

    Authorities are investigating the attack as a possible “lone wolf” based on the rudimentary construction of the device.

    No.

    But they may be soon.
    A succubus is a Lilin-demon in female form, or supernatural entity in folklore that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even in death.

    Not sure I can think of a job title more humiliating than "failed suicide bomber."

    This may come as a surprise but a lot of the people that get locked into(they actually use padlocks most often) those suicide vests often have a change of heart. The problem is that most of those nice vests with the primacord trim also come fully accessorized with a remote detonator. There were a couple of instances during the second intifada wherein suicide bombers were detonated live on television while trying to surrender to Israeli police. If not for bombs made by professional bomb makers and remote detonators I think you would have a lot more failed suicide bombers.
    Don't rely on theory if your life is at stake.

    Reminds me of a nigerian girl who meant to be a suicide bomber. A cop noticed she was acting strange in the street and they arrested her when she surrendered. This was during when boko haram had their 6 months of global spotlight.

    Life preservation is a basic instinct on anything living, it comes to no surprise that people have a change of heart especially when they know they will be ripped apart. I think that may be the biggest thing fucking with them, if you convinced these people to commit suicide by sleeping pill or something more peaceful i think the change of heart rate will be alot lower.
