Psycho Pig Pipe Bomber Charged
01 Aug 2004
Where's the SCREAMING HEADLINES, Daily News?
The former police officer suspected of planting a pipe bomb in a Times Square subway station is now charged in connection with the explosion that followed.

Detectives arrested Joseph Rodriguez Saturday at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital, where he's been undergoing psychiatric evaluation.

Rodriguez is charged with arson, weapons possession and reckless endangerment.

The NYPD recently forced the 27-year-old to retire because of psychological problems that began after the September 11th attacks.

On July 19th, Rodriguez told police he spotted a paper bag burning on a staircase leading to the downtown A train.

He suffered minor burns on his legs when a pipe bomb inside went off.

Investigators soon focused on Rodriguez as a possible suspect based largely on his psychological history.

A police union attorney has said the officer denies responsibility for the blast.

A cop was arrested by cops. But the authoritian police state is by definition illegitimate, so the cop should be let go, or at least a rescue attempt by passing anarchists is called for.

This is all very confusing.
