ABOVE: NYC Councilman, who reps Chelsea, was near the explosion last night. He spoke with CNN about the event.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has called the incident terrorism, which I think clarifies the confusion caused by Mayor de Blasio, who seemed to be saying there was not yet any link to international terrorism at his presser last night. Both de Blasio and the FBI have so far declined to refer to what happened as terrorism, per se. I would guess neither de Blasio nor the FBI will be re-elected.
Castile, who was black, died after being shot multiple times by an Asian cop near St. Paul, Minnesota, following what was apparently a routine traffic stop for a broken tail light. (Wonder why they police decided to bust the chops of the black couple with the busted tail light? Would be interesting to find out the thought process there, if there were any suspects they were looking for in the area.)
