Latest theory is whomever planted the bomb was trying to lure law enforcement into a trap and take as many police officers out as possible...by responding to gunshots that were fired prior to the explosion.  What group would be looking to take out law enforcement?

I suppose they were bored with no recent major violence and decided to try to start something.  However, I think those who were caught from the last violence are still sitting in jail and may be for a LONG time.  Gee, do they still get their Stimulus check or does it go to the prison?  Hopefully the guards get to add it to their Welfare Fund.

Also it kinda makes you afraid to just live your life. Always gotta be on the lookout for any kind of anything suspicious. Damn shame.

Be aware, be alert.  But if anyone choses to live in fear they are giving fear power over them.  I can't and won't live like that.  Doesn't matter if it's a virus bug or bomb blast dead is dead, but I can't allow fear to rule my emotions.

Law enforcement on Saturday reportedly developed a person of interest – possibly several – in the Nashville explosion that police have claimed was intentionally set off early on Christmas Day. 

CBS reporter Jeff Pegues tweeted on Saturday afternoon that police "have a person of interest or persons of interest" in connection with the purported bombing.

The FBI is going to cover up the Nashville bombing just like they covered up the Las Vegas shooting.

FBI doesn’t respond to the scene of explosions.

As a journalist who has worked with numerous FBI agents as sources throughout my investigations, they will tell you the same thing.

ATF & bomb squad respond to explosions.

Then, once an investigation occurs, FBI is later called in If it’s suspected a crime could be terrorism.

The FBI is only the first on scene if they

1. Know of a terror threat ahead of time

2. They have intel that a terrorist will carry out their attack at a specific time & place

3. FBI is running a covert operation with their informants and have agents nearby in case the bust goes awry or for reinforcement if a criminal or terrorist is successfully intercepted.

FBI was immediately on the scene after the bomb in Nashville went off which means they knew this bombing was going to happen & they know who did it.

The FBI is lying to the public about this bombing.
