Yet again, putative acts of terror — bombs detonated and discovered in New York and New Jersey, and a mass stabbing in Minnesota — conveniently paved the way for an expansion of police and surveillance state powers in the U.S., while providing an instant distraction from multiple ongoing and breaking crucial news topics.

This is not to downplay the severity of injuries to the public or the panic and fresh insecurity witnesses undoubtedly felt, but to avoid governmental manipulation of fear — incidentally a classic tool of fascist regimes seeking greater control of their citizenry — perspective is imperative.

At 9:30 a.m. Saturday, as runners prepared to participate in the annual Marine Semper Five charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey, a pipe bomb suddenly exploded in a trash can along the route — thankfully injuring no one, but forcing cancellation of the event. Two additional pipe bombs in the same vessel fortunately failed to detonate. Federal authorities swiftly arrived on scene to seek out any additional devices and investigate the matter.

“It makes me very angry that this could happen in a sleepy little town like Seaside Park after Labor Day,” nearby Toms River resident Adam Carswell told a local NBC affiliate, according to the New York Daily News.
