The Nashville bomber was making bombs last year, and his girlfriend told the police, the NY Times reports.
Officers visited the home of Anthony Warner after his girlfriend said he was producing explosives in his R.V., according to a police report. They said then that there was no evidence of a crime.
You’re allowed to make bombs? But I can’t have a gun for self-defense? No, actually, it’s illegal federally, so where were the Feds? They don’t know and can’t find the records.
According to a document filed with the Metro Nashville Police Department, a lawyer for the girlfriend told police officers that her boyfriend, Anthony Warner, “frequently talks about the military and bomb-making.” The call to the police was reported on Tuesday by The Tennessean and WTVF-TV, a Nashville station.
The officers who responded to the call notified their superiors within the Police Department. The incident report and Mr. Warner’s information were sent to the F.B.I., which said on Tuesday that it and the Defense Department found no records on Mr. Warner after receiving a request from the police on Aug. 22.
City council member, Bob Mendes, criticized the police because we always need to blame someone other than the perpetrator.
The bomber — alleged — only had one 1978 marijuana arrest and nothing criminal since.
