Default Trump supporters convicted in plot to kill Somali Immigrants

Kansas Trio Convicted in Plot to Bomb Somali Immigrants

WICHITA, Kan. ó Federal jurors convicted three men on Wednesday of plotting to blow up an apartment complex where Somali refugees live and pray in Garden City, Kan. The domestic terrorism verdict came at a time when threats against religious and racial minorities are rising nationally, and the case drew interest from the highest levels of the Justice Department.

ďThe defendants in this case acted with clear premeditation in an attempt to kill people on the basis of their religion and national origin,Ē Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. ďThatís not just illegal ó itís immoral and unacceptable, and weíre not going to stand for it.Ē

The men, Curtis Allen, Gavin Wright and Patrick Stein, all of whom are white, appeared stoic as the verdicts were read at the federal courthouse in Wichita. Defense lawyers had tried to convince jurors that their clients were manipulated by the F.B.I., and had been unfairly targeted for exercising their rights to own guns and speak freely.

ďHe was a member of a militia. He loved his guns. This was a lifestyle,Ē Melody Brannon, a lawyer for Mr. Allen, told the mostly white jury. ďThe government tried to criminalize that lifestyle.Ē

The men, who called themselves ďthe Crusaders,Ē were arrested about four weeks before Election Day and charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and conspiracy against rights, which the Justice Department considers a hate crime. Mr. Wright was also charged with lying to the F.B.I. The three men were found guilty on all counts and face up to life in prison when they are sentenced in June.

The trial came amid a national escalation in threats against religious and racial minorities, especially Muslims, according to the F.B.I. and organizations that monitor hate crimes.

ďIt is now approaching the level of hate violence against the same communities that we saw in the immediate wake of the 9/11 attacks,Ē said Suman Raghunathan, executive director of SAALT: South Asian Americans Leading Together, a national advocacy organization.

Kansas is the new Mississippi. It’s a shame it’s borders have to touch up against Colorado. If it didn’t grow wheat it would be a good candidate to use as a dumping ground for nuclear waste and other toxic stuff we have to put somewhere.

Yep.

And, unfortunately, Hair Fuhrer, Eddie Munster and Turtle Head are hell bent on doing to America what Brownback did to Kansas.

Hate to break it to you, but there are more than 3 violent idiots in every state in the Union.

Eastern Colorado is just an extension of Kansas. It literally was Kansas about 150 years ago.
