Judge Dismisses Wrongful-Death Lawsuit Against Border Patrol in Taser Explosion

courtroomBy Steve Neavling

A Border Patrol agent whose use of a Taser caused a deadly car explosion acted reasonably, a judge ruled in dismissing a wrong-death lawsuit against the agency, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. 

Alex Martin died after his car exploded when the agent used the Taser following a chase.

U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns said the agent responded in a reasonable manner given the tense situation.

The incident happened after Martin, 24, initiated a chase in San Diego that ended after his tires were flatted by a spike strip.

When agents surrounded Martin’s car, he appeared to reach in the center console, prompting one of the agents to fire a Taser through the window, causing an explosion.

Two men accused of plotting to blow up a major commuter rail between Toronto and the U.S. were arrested Monday, Newsday reports.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the attack involved al-Qaida “elements” in Iran but did not pose imminent danger, Newsday wrote.

The FBI helped investigate.

Police said the attack was still in the development stages and included blowing up a bridge used by the rail.

“This is the first known al-Qaida planned attack that we’ve experienced in Canada,” RCMP Superintendent Doug Best said in the news conference.

Boston Globe

BOSTON — At least three people were killed and at least 125 others were injured this afternoon as two powerful explosions detonated in quick succession near the Boston Marathon finish line in Boston’s Back Bay section, transforming a scene of athletic celebration into bloody chaos.

When the smoke cleared, dozens of victims lay in the street, some unconscious, some grievously injured, including some whose limbs had been torn off by the blast.

The dead included an 8-year-old boy, according to two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation. Boston Children’s Hospital reported that those treated there included a 9-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy, a 12-year-old, and a 2-year-old.

President Barack Obama vowed that whoever planted the explosives would be found and brought to justice.

Federal Investigators Join Probe into Massive, Deadly Explosion in Indianapolis

Steve Neavling

Federal, state and local investigators are trying to determine what caused a massive explosion that killed two people, injured seven, damaged or destroyed 31 homes and forced 200 people from their homes late Saturday night, the Indianapolis Star reports.

While the cause is unknown, much of the attention is on natural gas lines that have since been shut down.

Citizens Energy said it wasn’t clear Sunday whether a gas leak could have caused the explosion, the Indianapolis Star reported.

Indiana has a painful past with gas explosions. The deadliest disaster in Indianapolis history was a gas explosion that killed 74 people and injured 400 others after it tore through the State Fairgrounds Coliseum on Halloween 1963, according to the Star.

It’s unclear which federal agencies are involved.


Mining Company Reduces Accident Rate As Part of Fed Deal

Steve Neavling

The massive coal mining company that reached an agreement six months ago to avoid federal charges over the 2010 mine explosion in West Virginia that killed 29 workers has significantly reduced accident and injury rates, the Associated Press reports.

Alpha Natural Resources also is breaking ground on an $18 million training center designed to teach miners how to handle dangerous conditions as part of the pact with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin told the Associated Press that accidents are down by a third and the injury rate dropped by a quarter.

An explosion in the southern West Virginia mine in April 2010 killed 29 workers.
