A bomb found in Spokane, Washington was packed with some form of shrapnel and had a remote detonator attached. "This is meant to maim and kill when you do that with a device," said Al Odenthal who headed up Spokane's bomb squad for most of the 1990's.
Odenthal believes the placement of the bomb, on a bench facing the Martin Luther King Unity Parade route, was no mistake. "The steel bench and the brick wall will channel some of that almost like bouncing a basketball against a wall," Odenthal said of the energy from a potential blast. He also questioned whether this is an isolated incident.
