A Boston immigrant was charged Sunday night after Boston police and the FBI say he set off an explosion at his East Boston apartment early Sunday morning.
Although the explosion that blew out windows and caused an evacuation of the neighboring building occurred very early Sunday morning, police withheld the suspect’s name for over 12 hours, later identifying him as Tomas Mikula, 28.
According to police and the FBI, Mikula, who is believed to be from Czech Republic, was “playing” with bomb making materials when he set off an explosion in his second floor apartment on Webster Street, which blew out the windows and walls of his apartment, sending debris and glass onto the street.
As a result of the explosion, Mikula sustained second-degree burns and was later transported to and hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital.
When police, FBI, and ATF investigators searched Mikula’s apartment, they found bomb making materials, including PVC pipe, chemical compounds, along with a rifle, two handguns, and 100 rounds of ammunition.
However, despite the overwhelming evidence that Miklua was making explosives inside his apartment, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said, “We don’t believe there’s anything to do with terrorism. It’s just someone who has some weapons in there & is playing around w/ chemicals &, you know, some powder, & it looks like that blew up on him.”
Mayor Marty Walsh said Sunday that it does not appear that Mikula has any ties to terrorism, but that the motive is under investigation.
It is unclear how Commissioner Evans and Mayor Walsh could rule out terrorism before a full investigation was conducted into this newest Boston bombing, but as history has shown, the FBI and Boston Police Department don’t have the best track record when it comes to tracking down and preventing Boston bombers from setting off explosions.
On April 15, 2013, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev set off two homemade pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing 3 and wounding nearly 260 people. The brothers, who were Muslim immigrants from Kyrgyzstan used the internet to learn how to make the homemade explosives that sparked a massive investigation that ultimately led to the entire city of Boston being shut down.
It was later revealed that the FBI was aware of the Tsarnaev brothers before they carried out their deadly attack, but failed to prevent the terrorist attack, a pattern that is becoming all too familiar within the FBI. In 2011, the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency sent a correspondence to the FBI addressing concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the Tsarnaev family. By 2011, the Tsarnaevs, a Muslim family of Chechen ancestry, had been living in Massachusetts for nearly one decade, where they received over $100,000 from taxpayers in welfare benefits.
Comparisons can be drawn to this newest Boston bombing involving Mikula, an immigrant who also set off an explosion who has been living in Boston for well over a decade.
Prior to setting off an explosion, Mikula had already acquired a lengthy criminal record. Police say he has a criminal history, including credit card and identity theft charges, theft charges, and a 2009 firearm conviction.
Late Sunday evening, Mikula was charged with unlawful possession of explosives, unlawful possession of an incendiary device, willful ignition/discharge of a destructive or incendiary device, unlawful possession of a firearm (handgun), unlawful possession of a firearm (rifle), unlawful possession of ammunition, and unlawful possession of a high capacity firearm.
On Monday afternoon, Mikula was arraigned from his hospital bed where he is facing multiple charges. Mikula pleaded not guilty to all of the charges and will be held on $200,000 cash bail. If Mikula posts bail after he recovers from his second degree burns, the judge will order him to surrender his passport, he will nit be allowed to go back to his house on Webster Street, and he will be ordered to wear a GPS tracking device.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.
— Jeff Sessions (@jeffsessions) April 1, 2020
If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
