FTFA: FBI spokesman Jason Pack told CNN two people were injured in the incident. He said authorities have not determined there was an explosion but have confirmed a fire.

Aerial footage from the scene showed the white SUV with its hood blown up and its front end extensively damaged.


This is the kind of crap that blows the public credibility of organizations like the FBI and the CIA.

There has been an incident in the Klingon moon, Praxis.
No, a**hole, the moon farking EXPLODED!

Earlier: He said authorities have not determined there was an explosion but have confirmed a fire.

Now: Explosion that critically injured chairman of the Arkansas Medical Board was caused by a bomb in his car, police said

Um, yeah. I didn't think a fire could hurl you into the flowerbeds.

I blame America's future reliance on the Obama-backed communist socialist terrorist healthcare system.

Have they stopped saying it's in Memphis yet?

Those hybrid batteries explode when you overcharge them. Back to fossil fuels. Think of the children!

/how's that?

Its a good thing you're not an investigator of any sort. They're trained not to give any information that is speculative, only facts. The fire can be confirmed via visual evidence. To confirm an explosion takes a little longer.

Is it wrong that the first thought in my mind was "I wonder what his stance on abortion is?"

Sounds like this case is about to...blow up.

*puts on sunglasses*


YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh

Bu bu but... It's a hybrid! I thought they were bomb proof, could drive on water, and still get 50 mpg.

Oh... It was an SUV, that makes it mortal.

What? I can't hear you because of the sudden loud noise earlier.

Given that this happened in Arkansas, no.

If that's wrong, I don't want to be right, because that was my first thought as well.

That'll teach him to try to treat asthma!
 
2009-02-04 01:55:43 PM  
Just got this on local news about a half hour ago, was wondering how long it would take to show up on Fark. Once again, not disappointed. Good work as always.
 
2009-02-04 01:55:45 PM  
Um, no where in the article (using Ctrl-F) did I find the word hybrid.

Since he's "chairman of the Arkansas Medical Board", that's where my money would be...

West Memphis has really gone to the dogs.

Unda: I bet it turns out to be abortion foes...

For a family practitioner with a specialization in asthma? Besides, even the most aggressive anti-abortion groups learned that bombs were an incredibly stupid way of saying "choose life."

Strange stuff. Likely a business partner or a family member, someone who would profit if the guy ceased to exist. Especially somebody who is remarkably amateur at explosions- if you can't blow up something that holds a full tank of flammable liquid, you need to go back to shooting or stabbing, since even poisoning is probably out of your league.

Unda: I bet it turns out to be abortion foes...

That was my first thought too. FTA, it doesn't sound like he's any kind of abortion doctor. Not that that would excuse planting a bomb, but it would be double-your-fail for the bombers.

Have they checked for radiation? It could have been a dirty bomb.

Dick Cheney warned him. He just wouldn't listen.

WxGuy1: IT'S THE TERRURSISTSSSS!!!!!!

The local police started screaming terrorism as soon as they could, which means immediately on all news channels the lower third read POLICE: EXPLOSION WAS THE ACT OF TERRORISTS.

This country makes me sick sometimes.
 
2009-02-04 01:58:53 PM  
I would think that would have more of a Michael Bay feel to it, for randomly exploding.

...or Ford Explorer tire-style.
 
2009-02-04 01:59:02 PM  
Sounds like this new clue could to blow the case wide open...
 
2009-02-04 01:59:14 PM  
Flag on the play. Headline fail. Should have been Michael Bay instead of Jerry Bruckheimer. All who are against Subby, automatic first down.

Well, there's your criminal problem right there.....
 
2009-02-04 01:59:20 PM  
Wow, I'm not sure how I missed this on the news this morning. Oh thats right, I've stopped watching the local news. Its like a non-stop murder mystery novel, but with more murders and fewer solved cases.

It's been a while since we've had a good old fashioned car bombing in this country.

An explosion that critically injured the chairman of the Arkansas Medical Board on Wednesday was caused by a bomb, police said. Dr. Trent Pierce was injured outside his home Wednesday, authorities and local media say. Dr. Trent Pierce was injured outside his home Wednesday, authorities and local media say.

Dr. Trent Pierce was wounded when the car blew up in front of his West Memphis, Arkansas, home, authorities said.

Earlier, police told CNN affiliate WREG that they did not believe foul play was involved.


Just a bomb blew up the car. No foul play here. move along

If my car ever erupts into a ball of explosive flames...please assume foul play.

Even though initial reports are that he's an asthma doctor, I got five bucks that says Unda's right.... The terrorists are right here at home, folks.
 
2009-02-04 02:02:19 PM  
This happens the SAME time Darth Cheney slouches out of his cave to announce a threat of a terrorist attack.

HHhhmmmm....

WTF is up with Cheney, does he have connections with "terrorists" and advanced knowledge?

/Remember Murka, live in fear.
//Really now, WTF??
 
2009-02-04 02:03:07 PM  
Thus be it ever to anyone who would buy a hybrid SUV.

Davis said Pierce is well-liked

Could have fooled me.

FTFA:"West Memphis, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tennessee, are separated by the Mississippi River."

good to know, good to know.

the guy was appointed by Huckabee.

Now I'm really confused.

Unda: I bet it turns out to be abortion foes...

That is what my money is on, nutty anti-abortion protester. The guy is an asthma doctor, possibly the state medical board didn't vote the way some religious domestic terrorist thought they should have? I can't imagine an asthma doctor having a controversial practice so my guess is retaliation for the medical board.
 
2009-02-04 02:06:17 PM  
Unda: I bet it turns out to be abortion foes...

What if it was anti-abortion foes?

MSNBC is reporting Doctor Trent Pierce did not perform abortions...but as chairman of the state board, maybe he was anti-abortion?
