Cops Nab Fight Club-Loving Teen for 5/25 Starbucks Bombing
But he forgot the first rule of Fight Club, and bragged about his bombing to friends, leading to his arrest. Cops found on him a DVD of the movie and some sparklers. Can America's supermax prisons hold this dangerous terrorist?
You will recall that the 3 a.m. explosion at the Upper East Side Starbucks outlet went without a declaration of motive, causing all kinds of speculations, including that the bombers were on jihad against Starbucks' mermaid logo. Other observers drew parallels to the late-night Times Square Army recruiting station bomb of a few years back. Wait, you say you don't remember any of this? Have you forgotten 5/25 and 4/27? The eagle weeps.
Update: The Daily News has a pic of Shaw, a skinny white dude, either playing hacky-sack or doing some awkward Kung-Faux.
