    Man dies while making a pipe bomb

    (LONGVIEW, TX) - A man indicted on federal drug and firearms charges died in an explosion as he was making a pipe bomb that fire officials say he planned to use against agents.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    James Charles Torrence, 38, was building the bomb Monday in his home when it exploded, officials said. Authorities evacuated neighbors and detonated a second bomb in a nearby field, said Brian Howell, assistant fire marshal of the Longview Fire Department.

    Howell said documents were found in the residence listing names of agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Officials believe the Longview man was targeting the agencies because he felt they built the case against him, Howell said in a story in Tuesday's online edition of the Longview News-Journal.

    "We're saddened by the loss of any life, but I'm really, really grateful that a plot didn't materialize that resulted in the harm or death to someone else," U.S. Attorney Matt Orwig told The Associated Press.

    Officials also found a machine gun and a pistol silencer in the home.

    Orwig said Torrence had agreed to plead guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. He said Torrence was set to enter the plea June 7 and the drug charge carried a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison up to life.

    "He would've gotten out of prison as an old man, if he got out at all," Orwig said.

    I love it. I love it more when they live and are crippled the rest of their lives and have to shit in a bag coming out of their side. They have to beg someone else to change it because they have no arms!

    Funny, some thought they're smarter than normal people. He doesn't has any brain left in his skull after an explosion. Can someone tell me what amount of his brain he has after his death? I'm sure his brain is that tiny after a small size he had while he was alive. Hmmm...
