The Nashville bomber made a game of his terrorist attack . . . Not only did he step up his 15-minute warning to the authorities, he also wanted the area to reverberate with a classic song that has a connection to the area.
Authorities and others in the area heard the song « Downtown » by Petula Clark boom out of the RV and eventually explode and wreak havoc in downtown Nashville.
A police spokesman who was clearly unfamiliar with the song by butchering the singer’s name – he has an excuse for being too young to know the melody – said the song was all about glowing lights and so on.
« I remembered downtown with the lights shining brightly, » says Subway official Luellen, describing the song played by the RV before the downtown Nashville explosion. #NashvilleBombing picture. Twitter. com / VfBDdnEdVH
As we reported, the authorities are viewing a person of interest . . . 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner had a motor home that looked exactly like the one that exploded and hasn’t been seen since the bombing. He’s also the right age to know the song, which became a huge hit in 1964.
There is another verse – the first – that could be more telling . . . « When you’re together and life makes you lonely, you can always go downtown. «
The FBI appears to be working on the theory that Warner, who did the IT job, was paranoid about 5G technology and believed it was being used to spy on Americans. The AT&T building was badly damaged. It is unclear whether this was the target of the attack.
