Authorities believe Ahmad Khan Rahimi is responsible for the New York blast. However, unless he admits that he caused the blast, he should be considered innocent until proven guilty because that is how our justice system operates. In the court of public opinion, however, people can draw their own conclusions.
Ahmad Khan Rahami is seen on surveillance footage from Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood on Saturday night. Investigators now believe both bombings are connected and that Rahami is most likely connected to both. Individuals close to the investigation say there is other physical evidence that connects Rahami to the explosions in NY and NJ.
Ahmad Khan Rahami is responsible for the blasts in New York. His image was see on videotape in two locations, and the police have quickly identified him as a person of interest. A backpack full of explosives was found near his home in Elizabeth, N.J., making it more likely he is the guilty party.
Yes, Ahmad Khan Rahami is responsible for the New York blast because there is sufficient evidence linking him to the situation. He should go through the judicial system and be considered innocent at first, but ultimately, he should be captured by the police and brought to trial as soon as possible.
