Bomb Explodes in Target Bathroom

Target bathroom bomb 1

Authorities in Evanston, Illinois are investigating a recent bombing incident in a Target store, to determine if it was planted as a hate crime against Target and the LGBT community, for their announcement allowing anyone to use the bathroom or fitting room that matches their gender identity.

The bombing incident occurred Wednesday afternoon around 4:00 p.m. when an explosion occurred in a stall of the women’s restroom, according to WGNTV.  No one was in the bathroom at the time, so no one was injured.  The bomb was built from a plastic bottle, but with no nails of other items inside of it.  It caused minor damage to one stall.  Investigators will be checking store surveillance video to see if they can learn who planted the bomb, and determine if it was, in fact, a hate crime.

The bombing occurred on the same day as the annual meeting for Target shareholders, where a representative from the National Centr for Public Policy Research challenged Target on their new bathroom policy, but the company refused to budge. Also, American Family Association president, Tim Wildmon, has delivered a boycott pledge to Target headquarters, but again, they refused to back off the policy.   The boycott pledge will continue.
