‘I’m the NY Bomber’: FBI investigating online manifesto claiming responsibility for Chelsea explosion

NEW YORK — A person has claimed responsibility for detonating an explosive in New York's Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night. Police confirmed Sunday that they are aware of the manifesto and are investigating its validity.

screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-1-33-06-pmThe investigation is in its early stages, and the primary concern is credibility behind the posting titled, "I'm the NY Bomber: This is will be my manifesto," sources tell PIX11's Mario Diaz.

The individual titles two posts, "Taking a human life" and "Manufacturing Test Explosives," and claims the reason for Saturday night's attack is bringing attention to issues surrounding those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning.

You probably have all seen the news by now,
the explosives detonated in New York City, that was me. Those were just some tests, I know where I have made errors and I will not make the same mistake next time.
I did it because I cannot stand society.
I cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.

The alleged manifesto was pulled offline about 45 minutes after media outlets began reporting on the story.

The explosion in Chelsea at West 23rd Street injured 29 people and caused "significant damage" to the area.

No arrests have been made.

Read the entire manifesto below:

Taking a human life
I don’t know exactly how I feel about taking human lives
However, what I do know is that If I don’t do what needs to be done nobody will pay attention. LGBTQ+ people are much more likely to commit suicide than straight cisgendered people. It seems that nobody cares, however what if people from the LGBTQ+ community started lashing out in response to the violence and oppression we face with violence and possibly oppression? I’m sure that would give people a reason to not stand by while so many people are being oppressed. I suppose I’m just going to have to move forward knowing that what I am doing had a purpose and will in fact make a difference. I’ll keep you all posted.

Manufacturing Test Explosives
Hi.
You probably have all seen the news by now,
the explosives detonated in New York City, that was me. Those were just some tests, I know where I have made errors and I will not make the same mistake next time.
I did it because I cannot stand society.
I cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.
It is 2016 and we are still being viewed as mentally ill, sinners, attention seekers, and just plain weirdos in general. I am not going to stand by while under classed and underprivileged people are oppressed. I am not going to stand by while there is inequality in my country such as the racism being seen in white police officers all over the country. I am not going to live in a country where it is OK to have a misogynist, xenophobic, racist Islamophobic, republican candidate running for President of The United States! That’s implying that republicans in general should even be taken seriously as they are all cisgendered privileged white people.
This is not the end, this is just the beginning. I will be remembered. I will make a difference. I will eliminate my targets before it is too late.
