Some guy blew himself up in Manchester, Britain, at a music concert. Lots of people were killed and severely injured. How someone can blow themselves up in a crowded concert full of young kids is beyond me. I was very shocked at the lack of humanity.

Crime scene photos of the event were released by the New York Times, photos of the bomber’s backpack and battery. I should not be able to view these images on the web. How an active crime scene can be so compromized is beyond me. I am sure the British police are just livid, as this is an active crime. Someone should be fired for the leak.

That being said, let us look at this guy’s battery. The new York Times released 2 photos. More are online. I thought it was a motorcycle battery, but it was too small. Motorcycle batteries are usually 12aH, but the bomber’s battery was a mere 2.1aH.

It was easy to find a matching battery on the internet. The Yuasa Yucel matches the right panel’s “EL”, but the left “OG” does not match.

I should not be able to obtain these images a mere 3 days after the explosion. This is still an active crime scene. I would hope that media outlets such as the New York Times would not publish these and other evidence and therefore compromize this active crime investigation.
