So what you have is a car, parked legally with a cooking utensil inside. INSIDE the car. Now paint me stupid if I'm wrong, but if I was gonna plant a pressure cooker bomb somewhere, I'd be most likely to put it OUTSIDE of a car because the walls and windows of the car would be likely to absorb most of the sideways explosive force
Consider that the Boston bombing pressure cookers were placed in backpack in the middle of a crowd. if those pressure cookers had been in a car you would have been looking at little more than a handful of glass shard injuries.
Correct! A car parked in that location, unattended, with a pressure cooker inside and a smell of gasoline warrants further action. No problem whatsoever with this. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool.
