NYPD Investigates Tumblr Page Claiming To Be From Chelsea Bomber: “I Did This For Homosexuals Like Me”

The New York Daily News reports:

The NYPD is vetting a Tumblr page that claimed to be the “manifesto” of the New York City bomber— and threatened more explosions to come, a police source said. The page, called “I’m the NY Bomber,” claimed to be written by the person who planted bombs in Chelsea Saturday night.

A police source told the Daily News the department is investigating the blog. Another source said the NYPD is speaking to local LGBT activists for any clues about the webpage.

The page went down shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday. The page, which had a rainbow flag in its banner, said the bombs are a protest against the oppression of the LGBT community. “You probably have all seen the news by now, the explosives detonated in New York City, that was me,” the first post said.

“I did it because I cannot stand society. I cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.” In a second post, the author wrote, “I don’t know exactly how I feel about taking human lives.” Both posts were published Sunday.
