The Tragedy That Was Averted in Brooklyn

But for the grace of a fingertip blown off, the odds are that a terrible tragedy was averted in Brooklyn last week.

Though joking called the "mad bomber" and written off as a dog-walking kook, Remsen Street's Ivaylo Ivanov was charged Monday with 105 counts of hate crimes as well as criminal possession of a cache of rifles, handguns, and 8 pipe bombs, including one with a remote control, according to wcbstv.com.

Rabbi Serge Lippe of the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue told CBS 2 HD: "We've had Virginia Tech, we've had the Omish school house, I think but for a miracle and our thanks to the detectives, we would have been looking at a similar situation."
