It would have been nice to see things calm down, especially after all the recent talk of violence and assassination:

SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Spokane office of the FBI confirmed late Tuesday morning that a suspicious package found along the route of the Unity Parade on Monday morning was a credible threat that had the potential to cause "multiple casualties."

On Tuesday morning the FBI released a statement confirming that following the successful disruption of the device by the Explosives Disposal Unit, “preliminary analysis revealed the backpack contained a potentially deadly destructive device, likely capable of inflicting multiple casualties.

KXLY.com has the details.

UPDATE:

Rachel Maddow is interviewing someone from the Spokane Spokesman-Review about this now. He is referring to this as "in the sphere of domestic terrorism", and that it is certainly linked to the MLK Day celebration. They found a remote control for the device.
