Texas Explosion Investigated as Crime

Up until now, the horrific blast at the West Fertilizer Plant in Texas that killed 14 and injured 200 has been treated as an industrial accident.

Now, a criminal investigation is under way.

Police have arrested a volunteer EMT, Bruce Reed, who was at the site and spoke often to the media after the blast, for possession of explosives.

Someone Needs to File An Amended Report

The Dallas Morning News has uncovered the West Fertilizer Company’s report to the EPA and local officials.

The company checked “No” for the risk of fire or explosion.  It claimed the worse case scenario was a release of ammonia gas lasting ten minutes that would cause no deaths or injuries.
