Call it what it is, Bill!
New York City's mayor said an explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan Saturday night that injured 29 people was an "intentional act."
The explosion happened around 8:30 p.m. Saturday in front of 131 West 23rd Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues.
Twenty-eight of the people hurt suffered minor injuries, and one person's injuries are being described as serious. All are expected to survive.
Debris landed on nearby cars and shattered some windows. Two cars on West 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue had their back windows blown out. An 8-year-old who was in the back seat was injured.
The incident was captured on multiple surveillance cameras.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said that while the blast appeared to be intentional, it does not appear to be linked to terrorism.
Can someone explain to me how there can be two bombs planted in the middle of Manhattan and the mayor is saying that it's not terrorism? Does he think we're stupid?
