Two Men Arrested In Oregon, Earth Liberation Case

Last night it was revealed that two young Americans have been arrested for allegedly planning to blow up trucks and equipment belonging to a construction company they believe is polluting a stream in Hillsboro OR. According to media reports, Charles Arthur Jordan IV, 20, and Stephen Philip Marshall, 19, have each been charged with one count of conspiracy to damage or attempt to damage equipment used in interstate commerce. The alleged target was quarry company Morse Bros.

The people of Columbia City have been fighting Morse Bros for years and years. No one out there can hang out their laundry, because when they do, it gets covered with rock dust. Some days, people can hardly breathe due to the dust. But the city councilors out there sold out the people to the mining company. If anyone should be in jail, it's the board members of Morse bros.
