Nashville Bomber's Girlfriend Warned Cops A Year Ago He Was Making Bombs

A Metro Nashville Police Department report from August 2019 shows that local and federal authorities were aware of alleged threats he had made.

What? You say a dangerous domestic abuser was reported to the police, but he didn't answer the door and that was the end of it? You don't say. Huh.

Over and over, the common thread with these terror events is domestic abuse. And once again, authorities treated it as an unrelated matter, when experts already warn it substantially increases the risk of a mass attack. Via the Tennesean:

In the aftermath, The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Warner was "not on our radar" prior to the bombing. But a Metro Nashville Police Department report from August 2019 shows that local and federal authorities were aware of alleged threats he had made.

No actions appear to have been taken to stop Warner, a slender 5-foot-8, 135-pound man who died in the explosion, which injured three others.

On Aug. 21, 2019, the girlfriend told Nashville police that Warner "was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence," the MNPD report states. Nashville police then forwarded the information to the FBI.

[...] Throckmorton, who served as the woman's attorney, told officers Warner "frequently talks about the military and bomb making," the document said.

Warner "knows what he is doing and is capable of making a bomb," the attorney said to the officers, according to the report.

The attorney urged police to look into her claim, saying he feared for her safety. Police did go to Warner's home, but he didn't answer the door after they knocked.

He was making threats to his girlfriend, he was reportedly making bombs -- and they let it go after he didn't answer the door.

Now, just imagine his name was Breonna Taylor.
