Bombs Target Police and Judge in Indiana

March 19, 2016  | 

Law enforcement officials in a small southern Indiana city were the target of two explosive devices that were detonated over the past nine days, police said on Thursday.

A homemade device exploded in the driveway of a judge on Wednesday in Madison, Indiana. Authorities in the town were already investigating a similar device that detonated in the police department’s parking lot on March 6, Madison Police Chief Dan Thurston told a news conference.

“We are considering these explosions as a message and a direct threat to members of the criminal justice system in our local community,” Thurston said.

No injuries were reported in either explosion. Thurston said Madison law enforcement officials, their families and their neighbors should be vigilant in the city of about 12,000 people about 100 miles south of Indianapolis, Reuters reports.

wow I recall the days when it was "safe" to police the sticks, now they have it just as hard if not worse then the "big city cops". Sad
