Have you heard the name Bryce Reed lately? If not…you will now! – Check this out and see what you think about this guy…as well as possibilities that what happened at that plant was intentional!

This is via WND:

Two events happening on the same day – a West, Texas, man arrested for possession of a “destructive device” and law enforcement officials launching a criminal investigation into the town’s fatal, April 17 fertilizer-plant explosion – have reopened speculation that the deadly blast may have been more than an accident.

Yet thus far, authorities have refused to answer or comment on whether the two events are related.

Bryce Reed, 31, a member of West’s Emergency Medical Services team, was taken into custody at about 2:15 a.m. on Friday and was turned over to federal officials at about 7 a.m. He was scheduled to appear without bond in federal court in Waco, Texas, later Friday morning.

KPRC-TV in Houston quoted unnamed federal sources as saying Reed had asked an acquaintance to store a box for him sometime after the April 17 explosion. The sources said that person decided to look in the box, discovered what appeared to be a pipe bomb and contacted law enforcement officials.

Reed was among West’s most visible residents after the blast, which killed 15 people, injured 200 others and damaged hundreds of homes. He notably assumed command on the radio when he realized his superiors on the EMS team had died in the explosion. He was also quoted in several national media outlets and was among the speakers at the April 25 public memorial for the 12 people killed responding to the fire, the same memorial where President Barack Obama delivered the official eulogy.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Reed’s LinkedIn profile lists spending time at the U.S. Biological and Chemical Weapon Depot in Ft McClellan, Ala. Reed also lists one year from 2010-2011 as a technician/regional safety officer for Allied International Emergency LLC., where he said response teams dealt with “Weapons of Mass Destruction Response, Nuclear Event Management, Chemical or Biological Weapons Containment, Large Scale Environmental Loss Mitigation, to DOT/EPA small scale spill cleanup.”

Investigators have largely treated the fatal West Fertilizer Co. blast an industrial accident, but the Associated Press reports the Texas Department of Public Safety has now instructed the Texas Rangers and the McLennan County Sheriff’s Department to conduct a criminal probe.

“This disaster has severely impacted the community of West, and we want to ensure that no stone goes unturned and that all the facts related to this incident are uncovered,” DPS Director Steven McCraw said.

McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said residents “must have confidence that this incident has been looked at from every angle and professionally handled – they deserve nothing less.”

While authorities are still not discussing whether or not Reed’s arrest is connected to the investigation, those who know the paramedic have offered comments.

For example, Reed had spoken publicly about his friendship with Cyrus Reed (no relation), one of the first responders who was killed in West, even referring to him as “brother.” Yet Sarah Reed, Cyrus Reed’s biological sister, told the Dallas Morning News her family had been “fooled by Bryce Reed” and that the two were not close. In fact, Sarah Reed told the newspaper she had to ask police to guard her deceased brother’s apartment because she feared Reed had been stealing from it since the blast.

On the other hand, an EMS class student in West, where Reed was also an instructor, told the Morning News she would “trust him with my life.”

“I don’t see him being that type of person at all,” said student Amanda Atkins, who said she has known Reed since November. “He is the most caring, giving guy. I mean, wow. He’s totally not that type of person.”

The April 17 plant explosion began with a fire in the fertilizer and seed building, which then escalated with a massive explosion about 20 minutes after the first report of a fire. The blast registered on seismographs as a magnitude-2.1 earthquake and could be felt 50 miles away.

CNN reports on Monday, the state fire marshal’s office said it ruled out four potential causes: weather, natural causes, anhydrous ammonium and ammonium nitrate in a rail car.

CNN also reports scores of investigators have followed up on leads relating to the explosion. At least 60 investigators have been on site each day and have conducted over 400 interviews in trying to determine how the fire started and what caused the explosion.

Here are two reports you might want to check out regarding this story. You can read and watch the report in the video above here…and here’s one from Fox News that’s put together well.

So folks, do think this guy had some nefarious purpose for doing this? And what in the world were his motives for doing so, if he did?

    I know we crack jokes about her but Im really starting to wonder if she is a lunatic for real… WTF? She just cant let it go.. that’s why I asked the other night what was going on… if you two had a history? She is obsessed with you…. Glenn Close ( Fatal Attraction ) kind of crazy. We get into arguments about the topics posted with libtarded trolls all the time but she wont even discuss the issues…

    Don’t worry she hates me too.. but I think she hates any man that wont kiss her ass or shut up when she demands it. That is why I often tell her to make me a sandwich or get me a beer.. I know a bitter wench like her grinds her teeth over that.. I would never talk to a “lady” that way and have NEVER talked to my wife in that manner LOL just so you know…. ironically you and I have fired a few shots in anger at each other in the past but we get over it and try to stay on topic… crazy white mom does not know how to do that… well, she just doesn’t want to

    Oh before I forget… Happy Mothers Day to all the Angry White Dudettes out there!!! ( even you white mom )

      Shameful. Again, Feser is worth noting.

      “Or suppose that what is at issue is, again, not whether a certain claim is true or a certain argument cogent, but instead whether a certain person is reasonable, intellectually honest, worth trying to have a conversation with, etc. For example, suppose someone in a combox shows himself by his pattern of behavior to be an ignoramus, a crank, a troll, etc. — say by repeatedly making sweeping, ungrounded, or unhinged assertions, dismissing ideas and arguments he evidently does not even understand or books he hasn’t bothered to read, or indeed by committing ad hominem and other fallacies right and left. There is in such a case nothing wrong with calling such a person an ignoramus, a crank, a troll, etc. and refusing to engage with him any further. That is certainly an attack on the person, but it is no fallacy. It is just a straightforward inference from the facts, a well-founded judgment about him and his behavior, rather than a fallacious response to some argument he has given.”

      On the Rivals sites, there is a very useful feature. You’ll find it at the bottom of the following:

        • Snake Oiler says:

          So it is you, Vince. No, not at all. There’s a big difference between rational people with philosophical differences and unhinged shit-stirrers. And those who see fit to engage the unhinged shit-stirrers. Again, Feser:

          “Or suppose someone gains a reputation for expertise on some important matter of public controversy when in fact his views about the matter are laughably off-base and demonstrably ill-informed. Suppose further that he manifests extreme arrogance and dismissiveness toward those who actually do have expertise on the matter, where the fact of his unjustified self-confidence only serves to reinforce, in those who don’t know any better, the false impression that he must know what he is talking about. Here too an attack on the person himself is legitimate precisely because what is at issue is one of his personal qualities, viz. his arrogant pretense of expertise. Indeed, ridicule and other polemical methods can be legitimate tools in such an attack, since arrogant pretense can often effectively be countered in no other way, and treating the offender more gently might only reinforce the false impression that he and his views are respectable.”

          It could always be worse. If you didn’t happen to catch this one earlier…

    dere wite mum,

    You are a verry angry person. You sound–I am trying to think of a word–wrathful, I guess is like it. I am not sure that is a vocabulary word.

    You don’t stay on topic and you are an attack dog. You spend more time insulting people than being productive. It seems your goal is to put down issues and people on this site, but you ain’t that smart. You come across as sum bitch with a little education who is really not that smart. A quick wit, but not much beyond that.

    Also your posts indicate that you are well read and follow the news, but with a very heavy liberal slant to your views. Scientists have found, recently, that liberals and conservatives do not use the same part of the brain when involved in risk taking ventures,

    It seems to me the same holds true when they are in challenging discussions and the liberal brains swings totally over to your social and self awareness side and causes you to accept every difference of opinion as a personal affront and an attack on your intelligence.

    I hope you do not manifest this to your children, especially today, Mother’s Day

  16. angry white devil says:

    Ah, so your contempt for people with conservative values is the reason you visit this site? You are here to attack the “person” and not the ideology? Not a very productive way for an “intellectual” to spend her time…

    I guess that I am not “enlightened” or intelligent since I do not view abortion or homosexuality in a favorable light? My loyalty to my country and its traditions suggest that I am somehow inferior to all you open-minded liberals who have no boundaries, standards or commitment to anything? Liberals love to project those that disagree with them as neanderthals or hicks… they preach tolerance yet abstain from its practice when faced with a difference of opinion… tyranny through political correctness is what liberals are all about.

    I was hoping that we could hit the “reset” button as it where and conduct rational discussions but it appears that the visceral contempt and hatred that drives you might make that impossible…

    I believe that is was Einstein that said..the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.. we BOTH keep doing this… are we both insane?

    I’m done with this… I tried to give in and be reasonable thinking that I could appeal to the intelligence you so willing pontificate about and, it would alter the tone of the conversation but, I was mistaken… for all I know you may not be such a bad person despite your liberal views but you appear to be no better than those you love to hate… there is no malice in my comments.. just an honest observation. Good luck…

    • angry white devil says:

      I am relieved that you are not pro-abortion… I personally don’t care what grown adults do with each other as long as they don’t shove it in my face but the advocates for abortion enrage me… killing helpless babies takes things to a whole new level

      You got me.. I didn’t read ALL of it.. LOL
      I understand the context of your argument better now that I did… I did receive an engineering degree so I can’t be a total moron.. socially abrasive, and hard-headed yes, but not stupid… many/most liberals project a diminished mental capacity or a lack of formal education to those that disagree with their views… I am certain that I am right about that.

      so what do you consider yourself to be? politically speaking…

      • angry white devil says:

        okay.. I will take your word for it. You are against abortion.. cant imagine a “pro-choice” advocate willing to lie about that LOL

        However, I would classify most of your other views as liberal but not foaming at the mouth militancy that we experience here on a regular basis… LOL At least you presented your ideals in a thoughtful way… though we will NOT always agree we don’t have to insult each other.

        One of the biggest political hot topics here is “gun control” and the Second Amendment… do you think that citizens should have the right to bear arms? I assume that you are from the UK… if I understand correctly you cannot own weapons there… would you if you could?

        Also, gay marriage.. what say you?

        • I did not want to reply to this post, but I feel that I should. You say that gays (homosexuals) are born that way. well now, seeing as I believe in GOD in Heaven who made ALL of us, you are in effect saying that GOD made homosexuals. So, basically GOD is being blamed for this.

          Sorry, but I feel that is an insult to GOD. Do not be politically correct. Homosexuality is wrong. GOD created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!!!

          I will debate you on this point until you are blue in the face, however that is for a different thread. This thread is about the Texas explosion.

          I saw a flag somewhere (A Texan flag) with a snake on it (could be a rattler – unsure about that), which said “Do not tread on me” (or something similar). That is how people should be. Not politically correct, but straight forward (diplomacy is optional).

          • Dmitri God’s pretty straight forward. I’ll just use two verses; Levitcus 18;21 Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of God. I Am the Lord.
            Lev 18;22 Do not lie with a man as one lies with a women; that is detestable. NIV. The King James says ABOMINATION.

            Whoa whoa whoa… Dmitri, I NEVER said gays were born that way? Where did you get that from? Really… show me where you got that from? Where did I say that? Tell me…..

            Anyone who has read my previous posts on here knows how disgusting I think that it is…. you are way to quick to make assumptions about me. How the heck do you extrapolate I think gays where born that way out of ONE question that I posed to white mom? “gay marriage.. what say you?”

            Some of you guys don’t understand my strategy at all… by cooling down the rhetoric I get white mom to expose her true beliefs or she may contradict herself at some point ( a soft answer turneth away wrath) ( be as wise as serpents but appear harmless as doves ) she says she is not a liberal but by getting her to talk about HERSELF we find that she really is… thus she cannot say that we are attacking her without knowing her.

            People that are regulars here know ME better than that…. THEY know how I feel about these things… so I will contribute your premature chastisement as an over zealous and under informed response because you do not know me…

            FYI.. I totally agree with what you said. In my opinion the gay agenda is satanic as is abortion but I feel more strongly about abortion because an innocent life is taken.. two queers playing butt darts is two adults willfully harming each other.. as long as they keep it out of my face that is their sin to explain to God on judgement day so I don’t care… but, it should NEVER be called marriage in my opinion.

        I was playing “good cop” while you guys where the “bad cop” geeesh people…. I figured everyone picked up on that. It is hard to learn anything about someone when they are on the defensive the whole time, give them a reprieve and they will gush…. basic psychology

    I’m very disappointed in this thread. I usually gain something worthwhile to think about from every discussion on AWD, but not this one. It is clear ‘white mom’ is not a U.S. citizen and probably is rotting away in the UK, where the government has pretty much banned private ownership of guns and invited the muslims to move in and bring sharia law. We all know how those things turn out. Why doesn’t ‘white mom’ know and keep her ignorant mouth shut — answer, she doesn’t know any better. Britain is full of young socialists who don’t remember the Nazis. Why isn’t ‘white mom’ being blocked?
