Shots fired at Bush Tenn. headquarters
This story was big enough that it was reported as the lead story on the Nashville news round-up earlier today. At the time, there was a report that a bank nearby in the Bearden area was robbed about the same time as police were out investigating the incident. I was able to get confirmation of this over at WBIR's web site and their story.
My first thought upon hearing about the possible bank robbery was the attack wasn't really on the campaign offices, but this was a smoke screen to help the robbers pulls off a bank job. Doesn't that just seem like part of a mystery/conspiracy story you'd read or see on TV?
If you're interested, you can read more from the local angle
at the Knoxville News-Sentinel's
web site . Also, you can drop by InstaPundit's blog and hear about his first-hand experince going by the scene.
All kidding aside, this is an intriguing story and one that I'll be following as hopefully we shed some more light on it. I hope this isn't some kind of partisan thing or that party loyalty somehow entered into. Agree or disagree on who we think the next president should be, the way to voice that is a t-shirt, a bumper sticker and, best of all, getting out to vote for the candidate of your choice. Picking up a gun and shooting out some glass ain't really gonna help things much...and let's face it, it's not going to improve the perception of Tennessee by some other parts of the country who think we're all a bunch of yokels, driving our pick-up trucks with gun-racks.
