Police charge woman who ‘bombed’ the Evanston Target Bathroom

Would be a Sunday funny if it wasn't so tragic.

Heidi Schmidt, 44, of Chicago was arrested late Friday in connection with the explosion, which occurred in the Target’s ladies room in Evanston Illinois. Police immediately discounted the act as a hate crime, leaving many of us wondering why.

It turns out Heidi Schmidt, according to police, was trying to get high!

During the investigation, the Evanston Patch reports, police said that they recovered items that are “commonly combined in a method to produce a chemical high, but during the mixture process can become volatile and explode.”

The blast may have initiated from a plastic bottle observed in the stall.

“There is no factual evidence that was uncovered during this investigation that points toward this incident being related to any policies of the Target store or a hate crime,” police said in a statement.

Guess Amy Moritz Ridenour, president of the National Center for Public Policy Research can put her hammer away now. You won’t need a cross for your crucifixion. Yes, yes, we know you are the real victim but no, there will be no crucifying today.

But keep up the good work villainizing transgender people Amy. Your work has directly led to multiple attacks on transgender people in Bathrooms, crazies parading around Target with bibles and even an assault on a cisgender dad who brought his daughter in the men’s room out of concern for her safety. You should be proud.
