Recently, 15 pipebomb packages were sent to critics of Donald Trump, putting the nation on high alert. Most of these bombs were intercepted at mail screening location coast to coast. The targets included the Clintons, the Obama’s, Joe Biden, the CNN headquarters and so on. All harsh critics of the president. After about 5 days officials arrested Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida.

He is now awaiting federal charges of domestic terrorism and is linked to the bombings from fingerprints found on the packages. He had already had a criminal record so tracing the fingerprints quickly led to the arrest. He is now awaiting trial in New York City.

So, what does this mean for us? Things like this don’t happen to us in Albuquerque, right? While this may be true, for the most part, it’s a harsh reminder that we all need to keep our eyes open and be alert.
