The police department from Madison, Indiana and the ATF are currently investigating two seemingly related cases of terrorism, which occurred two weeks apart. Both the police and the ATF believe that the explosive devices, which targeted Madison’s Police Department and a judge’s house are connected and that the aggressor definitely has something against the justice system.
Madison’s police department is on the lookout for suspects in two cases of bombings which occurred two weeks apart. According to the police’s affidavits, the first incident took place two weeks ago, when an IED (improvised explosive device), also known as a pipe bomb, exploded across the police’s building.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the event, but the incident raised many questions about homeland security. Naturally, the police started to investigate this strange incident, but no suspects were apprehended.
After just two weeks, another incident occurred, only, this time, it was near a judge’s house. According to the police, sometime during the night, an incendiary device detonated on Wednesday in the driveway of a Judge’s house. They’ve also stated that the victim in question is a Jefferson County Judge and that his or hers house is located on Cherry Trace.
Due to the nature of this case, the police chose not to disclose the names of the victims or anything related to the incendiary devices used in the attacks.
As of now, Madison’s police department believe that the two incidents are related and that the perpetrator or perpetrators specifically targeted members of the justice system.
Dan Thurston, the chief of Madison’s police department offered a few comments. The police commissioner believes that the two incidents are intimately connected and that the assailant is trying to bring down the legal system by systematically targeting police buildings and judges.
Until now, no suspects were apprehended. In order to expedite the investigation, Madison’s police squad requested the help of the ATF. Both agencies have begun an extensive investigation in order to determine the reason behind the two acts of terrorism.
Furthermore, the same Dan Thurston recommended that those who are judges, district attorneys, police officers or are related to such people should be on the lookout for anything that looks remotely suspicious.
If by chance they catch of glimpse of something that is out of the ordinary, they should immediately notify either the Madison police department or the ATF.
In the meantime, the police and ATF are doing everything they can in order to avert another incident and to discover the reason behind the bombings.
