Homemade Bomb Explodes In TARGET Woman's Room in Evanston, Illinois

Commander Joe Dugan says no one was inside the bathroom when the small explosion happened a little after 4 o’clock. It caused minor damage and no one was injured. Early indications are that a plastic bottle was used but no projectiles like nails or tacks were inside it. Investigators are gathering evidence including examining store security camera video.

Target has been under attack recently for its stand on allowing people in the LGBT community to choose whichever bathroom they identify mostly with, either male or female, stating the company welcomes, “transgendered team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”

Supposedly 700,000 people signed an online petition promising to boycott Target, shareholders meeting have been crashed by extremist religious leaders, and “Christian” protestors (aka Street Screechers) have protested individual stores using bullhorns denouncing Target and LGBT community in the name of God.
