Agents find 'explosives laboratory' at Wisconsin apartment

Source: Associated Press



Associated Press APRIL 5, 2018 12:16PM

BEAVER DAM, Wis. Court records say a state Department of Justice agent found an "explosives laboratory" and white supremacist literature while investigating a fatal explosion at a Wisconsin apartment building.

State investigator Kevin Heimerl says he found 13 jars of the explosive triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, in the Beaver Dam home, along with bomb-making instructions. WKOW-TV reports Heimerl says containers labeled TATP were also found in an apartment garage.

The explosion last month killed 28-year-old Benjamin Morrow, who lived in the apartment. Authorities say they also found white supremacist literature in the bedroom. It is not clear if Morrow identified as a white supremacist.

TATP can explode if subjected to heat, friction, static electricity or shock. Authorities were forced to burn down the apartment building because the chemicals were too volatile to remove.

1. What do the authorities plan to do...

...to help the people they rendered homeless? Hopefully they at least helped them get their possessions out first.

7. The T word needs to come into the conversation

White male terrorism is a very big problem in the country.

20. The irony.

I'm sure the residents in that area have been terrorized by this event, and are probably now watching their neighbors with a suspicious eye.

But, this guy will probably never have the label terrorist attached to him. If he was dark skinned, an immigrant, a Muslim or even atheist, he would have terrorist on his gravestone.

15. If the guy blew himself up

I should think his minor in chemistry might be demoted posthumously.

Maybe this was Scott Walker's last resort if the courts left him no choice about how to deal with them in complying with their rulings against his election fraud.

16. but white supremacists

23. Glad he offed himself before he could kill others. Probably intended to go to Milwaukee and kill

It's about an hour NW of the city or maybe Madison an hour SW.

25. More proof of "white supremacy".

Blow your own ass up not giving a crap about the other folks living there. I wonder if the neighbors will now be candidates for the local homeless shelter.
I despise assholes like this "supreme" one.

Really MAGA'd this one, didn't you, Benny boy?
