Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Local News: Explosives Found in Apartment Search

AGAWAM, MASSACHUSETTS (WWLP) - An area on Springfield Street in Agawam has been evacuated after Agawam Police found dangerous materials such as chemicals and bomb making materials. At 1160 Springfield Street in the Feeding Hills section of Agawam at 10am, a search warrant was served. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raided one of the units at the Carriage House Apartments and arrested Michael Crooker. Crooker has previously been convicted of other firearms violations. They found extensive bomb making materials and dangerous chemicals in his apartment and car. Many agencies have been called in including ATF, FBI, and Homeland Security officials and at least 3 bomb squads. Springfield's HAZMAT team is also on the scene as well as another regional bomb squad. No one is being allowed within a 1,000 foot square radius of the area.

I would like some more specifics to go along with this story. Bomb making materials could be anything, and "other firearms violations" could be, too. Either way, I hope the media follows this story correctly, and makes no assumptions without accompanying facts.
