If you thought people lost their ever loving minds after finding out the Ferguson grand jury wasn’t going to indict Officer DarrenWilson, you’re absolutely right.
In fact, things were even crazier than you probably imagined, as two men claiming to be members of the New Black Panthers had planned a serious of assassinations and terrorist attacks against several key folks involved in the Michael Brown case.
That’s not the most shocking thing though. What’s really going to make your mouth drop is where they got the money for the bombs.
From Stl. Today:
Two men indicted last week on federal weapons charges allegedly had plans to bomb the Gateway Arch — and to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson — the Post-Dispatch has learned.
Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.
The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished. […]
It wasn’t bad enough these nuts were willing to kill tons of innocent people, it turns out they were leeches living off the government dole, using our taxpayer dollars to fund their murderous plots.
One can only hope the legal system, as corrupt and left-leaning as it may be at times, will throw the absolute book at these two disgusting individuals. Wacky people like these two are too dangerous to be out roaming the streets.
When will the folks in Ferguson finally understand that killing innocent people and looting neighborhood stores is not an effective means of engineering social change. In fact, it’s doing the exact opposite of achieving their goal and legitimizing the fear and stereotypes people have of young black men.
If they really want to see that perception change, it’s going to take leaders in the black community working for change from the inside, partnering with others from different races to build bridges.
Racism is a terrible blight on all of mankind, but it takes each race humbly admitting that there are problems that need to be solved before real change can take place.
