Gyrfalcon: propasaurus: Gyrfalcon: propasaurus: Will the operators of the West, TX fertilizer plant also be charged with WMD?

Did they blow up their plant on purpose with the intention of killing lots of people? Then, no.

Should they reasonably have known that 27 tons of ammonium nitrate might be unsafe?

Probably, but that's negligence, not malice. And negligence, even criminal negligence, is a civil tort, not a felony.

Wrong. Criminal negligence can often be a felony.

Law (Texas as an example)

Calling an IED a 'Weapon of Mass Destruction' is ridiculous.  Not that he doesn't deserve to go away for a long time, and not that bombing and terrorism aren't serious offenses, but charge him with that.  Maybe if it was a dirty bomb, but not really even then, IMO.

\Only nukes are WMDs.
\\That way, it's a beautiful pun.
\\\Weapons of Mass Destruction, get it?
