Suicide bomber at Tim Hortons

Details are being suppressed surrounding an explosion at a Tim Hortons coffee shop in Toronto yesterday. Employees and patrons observed a man entering the popular donut & coffee shop at the intersection of Yonge and Bloor streets and then going directly to the restroom. A number of witnesses described seeing something strapped to his upper body or otherwise visible through his outer clothing, a bomb perhaps? Hmmmm. It gets better. There's a strong indication the explosive material was TATP the same substance used by Joel Henry Hinnrichs, you remember him, he was the guy who blew himself up outside Oklahoma University stadium October 1st, 2005. It seems the OPP are taking a page from the FBI's "nothing to see here" play book. The official statement is the suspect's objective was arson (even though there was very little smoke) or suicide. Well, I'd say he succeeded. Always PC, the OPP aren't even commenting on the national origin or racial makeup of the bomber. What are the odds he was a disgruntled Jewish baker seaching to retaliate for lost business? Look out Krispy Kreams.
