Jeh Johnson says it’s too early to call this stuff “explosives”… could be clock-making materials. Gee, I wonder what his motive was for having all those explosives? As soon as Jeh Johnson figures it out, We’ll get back with you. If he was buying and stockpiling massive amounts of explosives then why wasn’t the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on to him?
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said that Micah X. Johnson, the gunman who killed five Dallas-area police officers Thursday night, had enough explosives in his home to “have devastating effects throughout our city…”
Brown’s comments came Sunday morning during a CNN interview with Jake Tapper. “We are convinced that this suspect had other plans and thought that what he was doing was righteous and believed that he was going to make law enforcement… and target law enforcement… and make us pay for what he sees as law enforcement’s effort to punish people of color,” Brown told Tapper.
“It appears that our search of the suspect’s home in Mesquite leads us to believe, based on evidence of bomb making materials and a journal, that this suspect had been practicing explosive detonations and that the materials were such that it was large enough to have devastating throughout our city and our north Texas area,” Chief Brown explained.
