Two events happening on the same day â€“ a West, Texas, man arrested for possession of a â€śdestructive deviceâ€ť and law enforcement officials launching a criminal investigation into the townâ€™s fatal, April 17 fertilizer-plant explosion â€“ have reopened speculation that the deadly blast may have been more than an accident.
Yet thus far, authorities have refused to answer or comment on whether the two events are related.
Bryce Reed, 31, a member of Westâ€™s Emergency Medical Services team, was taken into custody at about 2:15 a.m. on Friday and was turned over to federal officials at about 7 a.m. He was scheduled to appear without bond in federal court in Waco, Texas, later Friday morning....
If this device was labeled a gun, no one in Texas anyway, would be talking about it.
I suppose I'm not going to rush to judgment on this fellow. Now, there's already been a trial by media of the alleged Cleveland kidnapper. If the media is right, that was heinous crime something that you would expect in an Islamic country, The Status of Women in Islam. Now of course I have an opinion about this Castro fellow in Cleveland, but how far one should go in expressing it, I think I'll hold back.
I think with this fellow in Texas, I will also let the legal system have a go at it. As I've said I have seen too many trials by (my local) media, which has been wrong on occasion, to jump in with both onto a journalistic, legal IED! I think this will be a good story to follow, it most states they do take a dim view of bomb making, so this fellow might be in hot water about that?
