VBED Explodes in Downtown Nashville

Postby Gig em Aggies » Fri Dec 25, 2020 7:37 am

The authorities were investigating the source of the explosion that happened 6:30am Christmas Day local time some people state that it was an RV but authorities have yet to confirm. but the explosion did come from a "parked vehicle" as written in the story. damage was done to several downtown buildings officials cited by the local station WKRN didn't seem the blast was suspicious. BATF were called in as well to help in the investigation. From MSN the story states that the authorities have most likely determined that the RV blowing up was intentional. What are your thoughts?

Police were responding to reports of a suspicious vehicle when the explosion went off, WTVF reported. Three people have reportedly been hospitalised, but with no critical injuries.


The timing, on Christmas day... what message could the perpetrator(s) have been sending? So far we know the blast was powerful enough to cause a building to collapse.

It was near 2nd and commerce streets in Nashville. Lots of commercial buildings, parking garages, and restaurants there.

Well that would be if this was in front of a government building. Whoever this was managed to knock down one building, but so far no word on additional casualties. So far at least 5 have been injured, and local reports suggest more.

Oh man from looking at the footage yeah that was100% intentional. That whole street is beat to shit, that must have been a hundred pounds of ordnance at least in the RV.

As of right now all sources listed state the injuries as “non-serious”, or at least non-life threatening.

I say double or triple that- it knocked down a building. The color of the smoke also gives hints as to what explosive was used- I don't think it's fertilizer based.

Who did it?? Incel attack without political justification? Incel attack of the racial kind? Incel attack of the religious kind?

The police have already said they believe it was. No way it was accidental.

Apparently it was the old town tourist district.

My guess is that it was a premature detonation

Well it was on Christmas- we don't know why; and I don't think it's a good idea to just start pointing fingers without additional evidence, but that's pretty telling.

That's the big thing to focus on currently. Someone who can pull this off once can do it again, especially if they're not using controlled materials like bulk fertilizers.

I think I already mentioned some possible causes: pure incel attack, incel attack of racial nature and incel attack of religious nature. It is Nashville so I really doubt it is an Islamist incel attack.

Well do you think the suspicious vehicle call near the AT&T building had anything to do with it? It kind of sounds like a classic attack where a call is made to lure first responders in then a second vehicle parked near by is then detonated.
