The explosion injured 29 people.
Suspect in custody. You are welcome Colin Kaepernick.

Zeldin created a connection between an alleged terrorist incident and a professional football player who is raising awareness of police brutality against African-Americans.
Of course, Kaepernick fans were angry and took it to Twitter.
If only Kaepernick had stood for the anthem these past two weeks, we could have caught the terrorist 3 hours sooner probably.

It’s interesting that Zeldin frowns upon Kaepernick for being vocal about an issue he finds to be important when last year he posted a photo of Martin Luther King Jr., on his Instagram, with the caption: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
