Two men have been arrested by FBI and indicted on weapons charges near St.Louis, Missouri. According to CBS news source the suspects were allegedly plotting to set off pipe bombs amid the ongoing Ferguson protests.
The suspects were arrested by the federal agents as part of an undercover operation in St. Louis after they attempted to buy explosives on Thursday.
Meanwhile, St. Louis Today reports the men have been indicted on weapons charges for allegedly making purchases of two handguns at the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hazelwood. The publication names Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis to be the two detainees.
But it gets worse…
It has now been revealed that a bomb plot was just the tip of the iceberg and the aspirations of these two Muslim converts included bombing the St. Louis Arch as well as killing Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson and Prosecutor Bob McCulloch.
It seems that the media has been downplaying the arrests and alleged plot, but a blog called The Muslim Issue has uncovered some information that will be news to many:
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.
An indictment, with no mention of bombs or killings, was returned in federal court here Nov. 19 and unsealed Friday upon the arrest of Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Ali Davis.
The charges say that between Nov. 1 and Nov. 13, at the Cabela’s store in Hazelwood, Baldwin claimed to be buying two Hi-Point .45-caliber pistols for himself when they were really for another person. Brandon also is known as Brandon Muhammad, according to court documents, and Davis now goes by the last name Ali, his attorney said. Each faces a charge of aiding and abetting the making of a false written statement made in connection with a firearms purchase.
The sources said additional charges, reflecting the plot, were expected to be filed. They said Davis was considered the leader of the plot, which police documented on hidden video.
The firearm charges and arrests were reported by the Post-Dispatch on Friday night. Some national news outlets reported, with no detail, that there had been a bomb plot.
One of the defendants’ plans, the sources said, included planting a bomb inside the observation deck at the top of the Arch. It was not clear how they could have gotten a bomb past airport-style security screening for rides up.
It also wasn’t clear, the sources said, whether the men intended to use bombs as the means to kill McCulloch and Jackson. Both officials became targets of national criticism and protests after Brown’s killing.
Peaceful protesters are not the entire problem but the undesirables they are attracting are certainly a huge and growing problem.
When one looks around and realizes that they have aligned themselves with not just rioters, but dangerous terrorist elements like ISIS and The New Black Panthers, they might want to reconsider their stance. Peaceful protesters are providing cover for these criminal elements whether they care to admit it or not.
Regardless of guilt or innocence in the case of Officer Wilson, it is obvious that this entire movement has been co-opted by terrorists who have an agenda that has little to do with justice for Michael Brown and his family.
