Brian Church, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Jared Chase, of Keene, N.H.; and Brent Vincent Betterly, of Oakland Park, Mass., are being held on held on charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism, possession of an explosive or incendiary device and providing material support.
Three anti-NATO protesters charged with terrorism conspiracy planned to attack four Chicago police stations, the local campaign headquarters for President Barack Obama and the home of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, prosecutors alleged in court documents Saturday.
While friends of the three men insisted they were just operating a home brewery, prosecutors stated that police found a gun that fires mortar rounds, swords, a hunting bow, ninja-like throwing stars and knives with brass knuckle handles.
The beer operation, prosecutors added, was used to fill bottles with gasoline that would later be thrown as Molotov cocktails.
The predictable liberals are, of course, siding with the terror suspects, but their latest update is the most laughable portion of their blog post:
Yana Kunichoff of Truthout.org has a good update posted that includes a statement from Occupy Chicago on the raid:
'Occupy Chicago demands the immediate release of the peaceful protesters terrorized by the Chicago Police Department in Wednesday nights raid,' said Rachael Perrotta of the Occupy Chicago Press Committee in a statement. 'We are getting a taste here in Chicago of what it's like to live in a militarized police state, with non-violent demonstrators targeted for expressing their First Amendment Rights and for standing up against the NATO war machine.'
Peaceful, non-violent people are always in possession of a "gun that fires mortar rounds, swords, a hunting bow, ninja-like throwing stars and knives with brass knuckle handles?"
I wonder what they would have had if they were violent people?
