    We can only hope the system shows leniency and compassion for these brave young men who were willing to do something in the name of social justice much the same as our teacher and sage Mr William Akers...

    Re: Plot to blow up a bridge is foiled by the FBI

    Read the FBI Affidavit. We here in Cleveland are VERY upset; we thought we were too small a target for terrorism and we have MANY bridges and far too few cops to watch them. There are believed to be other, active cells and it matters not what these guys looked like; had they succeeded, thousands would have died. They planned to time the explosions for heavy drive home time.

    http://media.cleveland.com/plain_dea.../other/1-1.pdf

    Please...don't ridicule our fear. It is VERY real. I listened to the evening news tonight for the first time in ages.....these guys got WAY too close to "succeeding" at their evil plot.

    I thought about Oklahoma City, Ground Zero, the Pentagon, Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.....I thought things I imagine every Clevelander is thinking tonight. It's almost impossible to go anywhere here and not cross a bridge. One, Valley View, is famous for its length and the number of footers needed to support it.


    BRECKSVILLE, Ohio - The Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge, the target of a foiled terror plot, is used by thousands of drivers daily. Now, five men are behind bars for trying to blow it up.

    Construction on the five-span bridge was completed in 1931. The bridge connects Cuyahoga and Summit counties making it a very well traveled connector. It spans the Cuyahoga River and the Ohio Department of Transportation said nearly 14,000 vehicles depend on it every day.

    Underneath the bridge is the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Towpath Trail, an extremely popular area for people who love the outdoors. More than two million visitors each year walk, hike and fish in the area.

    But just steps from the Towpath Trail Monday night, the FBI said the five men planted what they thought were explosives underneath a column of the bridge and tried to set it off remotely. The men were then arrested by undercover FBI agents who were monitoring the group by video.

    "I take it personally, I really do. I don't like it, I don't like it at all," said Marty Bialec of Broadview Heights, who walks several miles along the path daily. "I'm very mad," Bialec said.

    FBI agents said the public was never in danger. They were tipped off to the clan in July and have been monitoring them ever since. A one-time criminal turned tipster was paid $6,000 by the FBI to help them track and crack the case.
    Thousands of people use targeted Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge every day

    So, $6,000 and a former criminal saved us, and while I thank the FBI, I shudder to think -- what if he had demanded $1 Million?

    Apparently two OWS organizers were involved in this: Brandon Baxter and Anthony Hayne. Bad PR for the OWS folks.
    "Bad PR" will be the least of their problems. These guys will all do LWOP, and they'll be someone's bitch the rest of their miserable lives.

    And personally, I don't want to hear any defense of the OWS Movement ever again. THIS is anarchy, and anarchy was ALWAYS their real goal, IMO.

    We don't have all the facts yet, but the FBI undercover apparently switched out the dynamite or whatever they wanted for harmless material. They ATTEMPTED mass murder, and they will die in prison.

    This case has absolutely nothing to with entrapment, which is police actions that induce a law abiding person to commit a crime.

    Five men described by federal authorities as anarchists angry with corporate America
    these things makes no sense to me, globalism (lowering of immigration and trade restrictions) IS anarchism. I have always suspected these black hooded anarchists are secret fronts for different organizations, probably the globalist corporations themselves as false flags.

    I just got home and haven't really read much into this story, but at least one of them was an Occupy Cleveland protester.
    They look like they could use a bit of shut eye.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    Re: Plot to blow up a bridge is foiled by the FBI

    I am unsubscribing now. My family could easily have been on that bridge; or a friend; or a neighbor. My kind and bright brother I adore; my daughter, who makes the sun rise every day. I'd never have survived their loss.

    It is just too hard for me to discuss this more, and I have said what I think needed saying by a Clevelander tonight.

    Thanks to Dittohead for starting this thread, and I hope you'll understand why I am bowing out here.
