Yesterday, an explosion leveled two buildings in East Harlem. Some people were killed (seven, last I saw the count), and a bunch more were injured.
Had the explosion been due to terrorism, even by a couple of dysfunctional losers with some fertilizer and too much time on their hands, you can bet whole cities would be locked down. Hordes of police and FBI would be kicking down doors.
However, a gas leak was to blame, and everyone just shrugs their shoulders. Crumbling infrastructure? No problem!
