Greenwich Village Subway Emergency Exit Smoke Bomb Restaurant Attack

Greenwich Village Subway Emergency Exit Smoke Bomb Restaurant Attack ---

October 10, 2014 Greenwich Village Subway Emergency Exit Smoke Bomb Restaurant Attack In Greenwich Village, New York, a man used a sidewalk emergency subway exit to emerge and toss a smoke grenade at diners who are eating at tables outside two trendy restaurants. No one was injured but some said that law enforcement should be concerned that the man was able to both exit and enter the emergency subway gate without being captured, and it could have been much worse if he delivered something more lethal in fire power given how common these exits are around New York City

Former FBI agent Brad Garrett said the event could be a good learning experience for authorities to understand how emergency services might respond in a similar attack.
"It's clearly a wake-up call," said Garrett, an ABC News contributor. "When you get into a city of the size of New York or even just the one borough of Manhattan, you literally cannot cover every single avenue. You do the best you can and try to learn from every situation and figure out where you have a vulnerability."
