The world is a dangerous place, and nuclear war isn't the only threat.

Just walked by @RT_com crew, correspondent said dramatically to camera, "There's a lot of panic in the streets" of NYC. There is no panic.

Correct. Walked all around the area and locals + tourists curious about what happened, but quite calm. #Chelseablast

Media is reporting that sources are saying the NYC and NJ were connected.

something else to consider. Its UN week in NYC. So now we have already stressed, very high threat events with the addition of an attack.

Another point now the public is going to be calling in every left bag, box, or anything remotely suspicious causing them to have to send units to dozens or hundreds of false calls when they already have the major security concerns.

So now we have tired, stressed, worn out first responders with public going to be calling in more suspicious items than normal during one of the highest security events of the year.

To me that sounds like a perfect storm for mistakes to happen, something be missed, and something going to happen.
