Skip to comments.Man with weapons and explosives arrested, was going to L.A. gay pride parade, police say
Posted on 06/12/2016 11:56:19 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as weapons and ammunition Sunday in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.
Early Sunday, Santa Monica police received a call of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb.
The car had Indiana plates. The man was arrested and made comments that he was in town for the Pride event in West Hollywood this weekend. The festival is going ahead with tightened security, and police are looking for the friend mentioned by the suspect.
Authorities said they see no connection between the Santa Monica arrest and a gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning. The Santa Monica investigation has been taken over by the FBI....

“Authorities said they see no connection between the Santa Monica arrest and a gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning.”
Just a coincidence.
I notice they make no mention of this person at all in the article. Must be a Muslim for if he was a white christian, or even just white, that would have been in the title.
They think we’re idiots.
The Santa Monica investigation has been taken over by the FBI....
That should tell ya something!
“Authorities said they see no connection...”
Who are these “authorities”?
I wonder how quickly this will be buried.
I thought is was San Bernadino?
“I notice they make no mention of this person at all in the article. Must be a Muslim...”
True or not, the news media has itself to blame for this.
“The Santa Monica investigation has been taken over by the FBI...”
If the guy was a muslim, there’s the connection. If the guy is white, hating gays in the connection. That’s the way they’ll play it.
Yeah. Strong chance his name if Mohammad. If his name were Billy Bob, it would be plastered throughout the article.
Trump is going to win in a landslide.
Lets see, the guy had long guns, lots of ammo, premixed tannerite,cammo clothing and a security badge. Oh, and magazines taped together for fast reloading, yup, nothing to see here.
Yeah. Right. Sure.. OK.
No (Muslim) terrorist here, right? No (Muslim) terrorists in Orlando, right?
After all, if it had been a crazed right wing, christian white male, we would have been told immediately, right?
They seem to not see any connection between Islam and the Orlando shooting even though the perp called 911 and told them he was ISIS, either.
We have some really stupid people as investigators......
“If the guy is white, hating gays in the connection. “
If the guy was white, it would be all over MSNBC as the top headline.
Interesting investigation the FBI is running with Santa Monica's evidence unit printing the car and gathering evidence; last I checked, the FBI brings in their own evidence gathering teams when they take over an investigation.
