The sad thing is, this sounds like a guy who just liked to blow small things up — there’s talk about him shooting cans of cheese wiz because they looked funny after you shoot them. Wouldn’t be the first guy I’ve known who also likes making small explosives to see how they explode.
But that Fertilizer Plant? It had so much illegally stored explosive material that it was figuratively a ticking time bomb waiting to go off — a lightning strike, a car wreck nearby taking out a power pole, or… maybe some redneck playing with homemade explosives?
(Also, eagerly awaiting Jim Hoft / Twitchy / Breitbart explaining how this paramedic is really an Obama Muslim Plant.)
