Bodycam footage shows before and after Nashville bomb
Here is my question, can anyone tell me why it looks like the source isn’t the RV at all? I tried to post a picture but it was “too large”. Idk how to insert it any other way, but with the footage slowed it appears the explosion happens across the street from the rv. I don’t know much about bombs so is there a way for it to not explode from the rv and still be tied to it?
Regardless of what the conspiracy rumor mill says, we're dealing with a flesh-and-warm-blooded creature here.
Fact check: Debunking conspiracy links between Nashville explosion, Dominion and AT&T
If it's true that AQW was diagnosed with cancer would his doctor be able to publicly state that it is true in the case of a deceased person? Would patient/doctor privacy still be a thing? If he had brain cancer could it cause a conspiracy theory balloon out of control?
I would love to know the answer to the question of doctor/patient confidentiality in a case like this in which the patient is deceased and committed an act of terror. Anyone verified who we can ask? Maybe @gitana1 or @Alethea ?
His family or friends could confirm or deny but his doctors would still be bound by HIPAA. LE can subpoena the records but I doubt the doctors would speak publicly.
So LE can go around HIPAA to find out if AQW had a cancer diagnosis and report it?
First responders, who have been working tirelessly since the explosion, are in need of support kits. Supplies can be dropped off at 218 Omohundro Place.

Here's how to help those affected by the Nashville Christmas Day bombing
Warner had not previously been on law enforcement's radar, according to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch.
He was arrested on a charge of marijuana possession for resale in 1978, when he was 21, but otherwise had no criminal history.
Investigators from the TBI are working with the FBI, ATF and Nashville police on interviewing other family members as well as Warner's neighbors. They are talking to anyone who knew Warner and trying to get his history as best they can, authorities said.
Before exploding, the RV was parked right outside an AT&T transmission building, which sustained significant damage in the blast, knocking out wireless service for much of the region, authorities said.
Warner's father previously worked at AT&T, according to Rausch, and he said investigators are looking into whether that may be relevant to the motive.
What we know about the 63-year-old Nashville bomber
The AT&T building was the central office of a telephone exchange, with network equipment in it, the company said. Some internet access in Tennessee and surrounding states went down after the blast, as well as some cellphone and 911 service in counties in Tennessee and Kentucky.
The Federal Aviation Administration temporarily halted flights out of Nashville International Airport Friday due to telecommunications issues.
Petula Clark shocked and confused after 'Downtown' was used in Nashville bombing
The song begins like this:
When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown'
yeah I don't think it actually happened
HIPPA should not be an issue that would restrict law enforcement purposes, if that data is needed and requested by law.
Summary of the HIPAA Privacy Rule
Law Enforcement Purposes. Covered entities may disclose protected health information to law enforcement officials for law enforcement purposes under the following six circumstances, and subject to specified conditions:
(1) as required by law (including court orders, court-ordered warrants, subpoenas) and administrative requests;
(2) to identify or locate a suspect, fugitive, material witness, or missing person;
(3) in response to a law enforcement official’s request for information about a victim or suspected victim of a crime;
(4) to alert law enforcement of a person’s death, if the covered entity suspects that criminal activity caused the death;
(5) when a covered entity believes that protected health information is evidence of a crime that occurred on its premises; and
(6) by a covered health care provider in a medical emergency not occurring on its premises, when necessary to inform law enforcement about the commission and nature of a crime, the location of the crime or crime victims, and the perpetrator of the crime.
so much for him sparing innocent lives
My heart breaks for the dogs.
The source of the disruption was an explosion 145 miles away in downtown Nashville, set off by a man in a bomb-filled R.V. who pulled up outside an AT&T building that is a central hub linking cellular, internet and cable television services across the region. The bombing reverberated across several states, illuminating the vulnerabilities of our interconnected world and leading investigators to question whether the perpetrator, an information technology specialist who died in the blast, had specifically targeted the building.

HIPAA allows the release of personal medical information to LE in response to a subpoena so LE will know whether or not its true. They wouldn't release that information to the public so we may not know unless his mom or sister decides to speak to the press.
I believe HIPAA continues for 50 years past the decedents death date. However, there are some exclusions. How Do HIPAA Regulations Apply After Death?
There are a number of ways that LE may obtain information, however, they are not allowed to simply "go around" HIPPA laws. Even then, there are exceptions to the rules. There are also state laws in which to contend that may make access to PHI (protected health information) easier or more difficult. HIPPA laws are notoriously complicated.
There's the gaining access to the health information and the release of that information.
The person of interest (AQW) in this case being deceased obviously cannot give written consent. So, in order to gain access to the medical records of AQW from a doctor (or pharmacist, health insurance company, or any other "covered entity") LE would need a warrant, subpoena or court order. However, there are instances where LE can bypass administration and/or judicial processes. Off the top of my head; missing persons (in order to identify), when a crime has been committed at a healthcare facility, when the information is necessary for public safety...
