TX Man Indicted for Abortion Clinic Bombing

Paul Ross Evans, who was arrested last month on charges that he attempted to bomb a women's health clinic in Austin, Texas, was indicted on Tuesday. A federal grand jury in Austin has charged Evans with five criminal counts, including an attempt to use a weapon of mass destruction, which is punishable by life in prison, and using and carrying a destructive device in order to commit an act of violence. Evans also faces a charge of possessing a destructive device as a convicted felon. funny pictures funny images funny photos funny animal pictures funny dog pictures funny cat pictures funny gifs

The homemade bomb was left in the parking lot of the Austin Women's Health Center in late April. While the device was successfully disarmed, authorities have said that, if detonated, the bomb could have killed or seriously injured anyone within 100 feet. Video surveillance cameras and credit card records implicate Evans in the purchasing and manufacturing of the bomb.
