It appears people upset with Target over its new trans-inclusive bathroom policy could be upping their ante.
Instead of merely marching up and down the aisles waving Bibles in the air and condemning the discount department store to hell, someone has planted a bomb in the bathroom.
Yes, you read that correctly. Someone has literally blown up the bathroom… and all in a possible effort to “keep children safe.”
A small bomb was detonated in the women’s bathroom at a Target store in Evanston yesterday at around 4 p.m. Officials are looking into whether the attack is connected to the company’s recent policy change that allows transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice.
According to commander Joe Dugan, no one was inside the bathroom at the time of the explosion. There were no injuries and only minor damage.
After reviewing store security camera video, police took a 44-year-old woman into custody this morning. They are calling her a “person of interest” in the crime, though no charges have been filed yet.
“The detectives are not currently looking for any known additional suspects and (at) this point there is no indication that the incident is related to any policies that the Target store has in place,” a press release reads.
