ALERT: Bombing at Republican AG’s Office

Red light

( – In what is clearly a dangerous provocation targeting Republicans – and in deep-red Alabama – a bomb has exploded at the office of the state’s GOP Attorney General, Steve Marshall, triggering an immediate investigation.

The detonation of an explosive device occurred outside Marshall’s office.

In a statement, the AG revealed that the explosion resulted in no injuries and that the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency would conduct a thorough investigation into the incident.

No motives have been suggested, and the authorities have pinpointed no suspects.

“In the early hours of Saturday, February 24, an explosive device was detonated outside of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office building in Montgomery,” Marshall disclosed in a statement.

“Thankfully, no staff or personnel were injured by the explosion. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency will lead the investigation, and we are urging anyone with information to contact them immediately,” he added.

The incident reportedly occurred at the juncture of Washington Avenue and South Bainbridge Street in Montgomery, following reports of a suspicious package present at the location, The Daily Wire reports.

“Nothing further is available as the investigation remains ongoing,” the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency announced.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation was notified about the incident at approximately 8:19 a.m. on Saturday.

Sgt. Jeremy Burkett of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. Burkett noted that the explosion did not result in any property damage.

The Wire points out that the incident follows a period of heightened national focus on Alabama, stemming from a ruling by the state’s Supreme Court.

The court decided in an 8-1 ruling that a fertility clinic could face a lawsuit for wrongful death from three couples after the accidental destruction of several embryos.

The court determined that embryos should be acknowledged and safeguarded as unborn children, anchoring their decision in a clause of Alabama’s Constitution, which asserts that the state’s public policy is to protect the sanctity of unborn life.

“Here, the text of the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act is sweeping and unqualified. It applies to all children, born and unborn, without limitation. It is not the role of this Court to craft a new limitation based on our own view of what is or is not wise public policy,” Justice Jay Mitchell stated in the majority decision.
