An explosive device was detonated  Saturday at night in front of the Teletica (Televisora de Costa Rica), in La Sabana.

The incident occurred around 11:30 pm in the southwest corner of the building that houses the offices and television studios of Teletica channel 7 and CableTica, the television and internet cable provider.

The security videos capture three men in the isolated street, seen arriving at the entrance to the building, loitering across the entranceway and then leave in the direction of the Sabana park. Minutes later, the device explodes, causing minor damage to the building, including piercing the plate glass next to the building’s main entrance.

Luckily there was no one walking by the area at that time of night and no vehicular traffic at the moment of the explosion.

The social networks fired up with comments, mostly against what many called a ‘cowardly’ act.

violent or rowdy behavior by young troublemakers, typically in a gang.

the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

However, the main sentiment of the comments strikes at the core of insecurity, many feeling this may be the start of a trend in a country.

  • Yesterday they put on a ‘cachiflin’ tomorrow a car bomb … it all starts like this. We’ve lost this country … what a sadness!”
  • “For intolerance, we become like others (countries)? We enjoy peace so much that … unbelievable.”
  • “It all seems to come from the same people and groups that promote the strikes.”

While some commented that it was just a piece of glass (that was damaged) and blames the media for blowing up (no pun intended) the situation, “creating storm from a glass of water”.

The question being raised by many is that the intention is clear, that this act, that could lead to bigger and possible fatal acts, is to terrorize. “Costa Ricans should not justify it, much less approve these types of acts. That is absolutely irresponsible. In the end, it hurts us all.”
