The plant had 270....270 tons of high explosives O_O

Why is this prime piece of real estate not locked down like Fort knox?

And apparently the plant owners forgot to file with the federal government this little fact

Uh, it's a fertilizer plant, ammonium nitrate is just one of the ingredients, and no, it's not a "high explosive", there was just a lot of it, because, well, it's a fertilizer plant -_-;;

The problem is that plants like these shouldn't be located right next to schools or apartment buildings etc.

the explosion was caused by a fire (which is why many of the dead are firefighters and first responders), they don't know yet how the fire started.

according to the owner after he was cited by the EPA in 2006 for safety issues. A fire could never happen in his plant.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Hopefully, they will catch the suspect(s) really soon and preferably by morning.

One of the suspects has died after shoot-out with the police, explosives were reportedly set off by the suspects, including pressure-cooker style ones like the one at the marathon.

The other suspect is still fleeing.

They used handheld explosives right? Really loud explosions that shake the ground are probably pipebombs, while the others could be toilet cleaner bombs or CO2 bombs.

No idea, but I would assume so. Apparently some were thrown from their car, not sure how accurate that report is.

One Bomb suspect = Dead

The other on the loose.

All thanks to our functioning US gov't capable of tracking down these kinds of suspects very quickly.

It's too bad that suspect 2 is unlikely to be captured alive, a quick death is too good for him.
