OXNARD, Calif. -- A man faces charges of creating a chemical weapon capable of creating a gas the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classifies as "immediately dangerous to life or health considerations" in a Walmart store here, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Martin Reyes, 31, was questioned Tuesday in connection with a report of having a possible improvised chemical weapon at the store the morning of June 18, says Oxnard police Sgt. Mike Gregson said.

The store was evacuated for about six hours until a hazmat team rendered the device safe.

Martin Reyes is an L.A. Cholo, in an out of the revolving prison motel run by liberals in California.

Gov Brown wants to give people like him back their voting rights.

Well, he's in jail already so getting hands on him is taken care of. He needs to be charged with a crime, given a trial if he doesn't plead guilty and if convicted, kept in jail for a long, long time.

yeah but hes not white

well how do we prevent his kind from acting this way again?

Actually, we can't - see something, say something. It's a free country, and that's part of the risk we take by allowing people to have freedom and liberty. I prefer to take the risk than the alternative.

I give him points for using only items found inside the store. And, I'm damned impressed that the Walmart security figured it out and intervened before it went off.

Walmart security where I live is an old guy driving around in a golf cart in the parking lot, who looks like he took a wrong turn out of the golf course and now he's driving in circles trying to escape Walmart.

His kind?

His kind of what? Insane guy? Idiot? Murderer? Man?

Or, are you saying anybody who looks, talks or thinks like him is going to do this thing, too?

You know...you should probably be over there worshiping Hillary. She's the one who stupidly likes to separate people by "kinds".

Why do you keep going back to that statement when it was true?

That statement is true, that Mexico is sending us its rapists and drug dealers? Really?

Yes, do you not know this?

Do you have a problem with the word sending or the words rapists or drug dealers?

I have a problem with xenophobia.

That didn't answer my question and what Trump said has nothing to do with Xenophobia.

You seem to be Ok with criminals coming across the border.

Why are you OK with this?

Mexico is not "sending us" anyone.
We are allowing illegal immigrants to come from Mexico because the employers of said illegals want them here for the cheap labor.

Trump is feeding xenophobia and presenting the wall between our two nations as a solution to the problem, and people who don't like Hispanics are eating it up. The wall is nothing more than a way to make people think that he has a solution to the problem of illegal immigration and of gang violence that is actually a creation of the so called "war on drugs." The truth is the wall would be an expensive and impractical boondoggle and that Trump has no clue how to address illegal immigration, drugs, or anything else. All he knows how to do is appeal to the ethnocentrism of his voting base.

Since it is a fact the border crossers are criminals, in many ways, then you have a problem with the idea that Mexico is sending them.

Ok, that is fine. Mexico did publish a pamphlet for border crossers on how to survive crossing the desert.

I am not sure you can say that is actually sending them, but Mexico is in no way trying to discourage it either.

By the way, who are the employers of the drug dealers?
