NYPD: Washington Square Arch target in explosives case

A man arrested on suspicion of possession of an explosive substance allegedly told people he planned to blow up the iconic arch in New York City's Washington Square Park, authorities say.

Aaron Greene, 31, was arrested in December after police say they discovered the explosive substance and a sawed-off shotgun in his Manhattan apartment while serving an unrelated warrant for felony grand larceny against his girlfriend, Morgan Gliedman.

    Take it easy folks. The authorities should exercise extreme kindness in this case. Mr.Greene is not a middle eastern or pakistani. And then he was just planning.
