((Today The Joker went out and hired some expendable muscle. He detailed his idea for them, gave them all the tools they needed, and then sent them out on a mission. Not an hour later, an anonymous tip led the police to The Joker's location. He was then taken into custody, and was sitting in a holding cell for everything that follows.
The thugs broke into the New York Times building and held the employees at gunpoint, instructing them to insert a flyer The Joker had made up in every edition that went out for the next morning. After this had been done, and the papers sent out on trucks, the thugs left, blocking the doors so that the employees were locked inside. After making a shrill, anonymous 911 call on a disposable phone, they disappeared.
When the police entered the lobby, they found three jack-in-the-boxes sitting rigged to a large bomb with a note instructing them to pick one and crank it. The bomb squad was brought in as the police began evacuating the building.
As they severed the wire that connected the toys to the bomb, the jack-in-the-box on the left popped up. This triggered a second, hidden bomb in one of the offices above, which detonated. Most of the employees got out of the building before the bomb went off. However, the building was turned to rubble, and rescue efforts have yielded no survivors of those who were still inside.
The flyer, while clearly connected to and from The Joker, cannot be linked to him by hard evidence. It's expected he will be released within 24 hours without being charged, but will be watched for the next several days.))
