…. No! Really!
The NYPost reports – and I have verified through a NYPD source that this is for real – a guy with gas cans walked into St. Patrick’s Cathedral in midtown Manhattan today and got his crazy ass arrested by NY’s finest.
No, the gas cans were not empty and he wasn’t looking for gas for his lawn mower. Presumably, there was gas in the gas cans. The photos suggests also bottles of bbq fire starter and lighters. HERE
There is a 24/7 NYPD post at St. Pat’s.
My 24/7 kudos to the NYPD. And I think they just had a new class of officers sworn in today. Congratulations!
I hope that every priest or layman working for every church and chancery out there will bring up discussion of an “action plan” in the case of arson.
- Where do you go?
- What do you get out?
- What’s your fire plan?
- Have you spoken with the Fire Department?
It’s always someone else… until it’s not.
Around 7:55pm, a man walked into St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan with gas cans and lighter fluid, and was subsequently apprehended by @NYPDCT without incident. We thank our partners for their help, and remember – if you see something, say something. pic.twitter.com/qEbmklnqzQ
