RIP ERTILIZER PLANTS

Triumph: And yet the media attention will not be about how DHS missed a massive 270 ton bomb that killed 13 people and leveled a nursing home, but about how it missed a couple students with pressure cookers full of black powder, bb pellets and nails.
serial_crusher: Would those kind of regulations have necessarily prevented anything from happening?
TV's Vinnie: Zoning laws are for sohshulists![s3.amazonaws.com image 550x673]
Walker: And not a got damn thing will be done about it./Texas, state motto "Regulations are for pussies"
Pavia_Resistance: I guess the "F" was lost in the explosion
Three Crooked Squirrels: So the explosion killed "at least 14 people." At the same time, this plant probably employed a lot more. What would you rather have? Burdensome job-killing regulation, or actually people-killing fertilizer plants? The owner was just doing his patriotic duty by willfully ignoring stupid restrictive regulations so he could be a job creator.
Phoenix87ta: FloydA: [i105.photobucket.com image 480x640]RIP ERTILIZER PLANTSTook me a moment. Well played.
True Value: People are frothing about immigration and Miranda rights for the Boston bombers who killed four people. I wonder what the conversation will be about the plant owners and managers that willfully ignored safety regulations and killed at least 14 people?
Adolf Oliver Nipples: So there's concern that a plant that manufactures more than 400 pounds a day of said substance didn't report that fact to DHS? Isn't it already obvious? Who do you report to? Do you keep their number on speed-dial for the daily check-in?DHS already knew. If they say they didn't they're lying, because that is what a fertilizer plant makes.
Thisbymaster: Seriously? This sort of things should have the company, their parent company and all parent companies above them have their assists taken, now. We need laws enforcement that has balls to rip down those who blatantly disregard laws like this. Sort like how we need leaders who are ready to tear down banks that do the same damn thing.

If they say they didn't they're lying, because that is what a fertilizer plant makes.They probably knew what their production rate was, but they might *not* have known that they were *storing* 270 *tons* of low-grade explosives. And whoever in the state of Texas licensed that plant to be in a residential area? They need to be taken out back and "reasoned" with.
Chariset: Some kind of "gentlemen's agreement" between the plant owner and anyone who might report him to them meddlin' government folks?
E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: so who's worse_the Marathon bombers who killed less than 10, or the plant owners who've killed more than a dozen and destroyed a town in the name of greed??
BumpInTheNight: Fortunately intent is a significant portion of murder charges and how they play out.
