Georgia men charged with plotting to make ricin for terror attack

Federal authorities on Tuesday arrested four Georgia men accused of plotting to buy explosives and produce a deadly biological toxin to attack fellow U.S. citizens and government officials.

The Justice Department said the men were members of a fringe domestic militia group and had planned to manufacture ricin for use in their attacks.

The men attended meetings starting in March where they discussed carrying out crimes, including murder, in order to undermine federal and state government, prosecutors said. The targets included local police, federal government buildings and employees of agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service.

Oh look speaking of swoop and poop...it's the Foul Owl.

We're not worried about ACORN...they've been effectively disbanded.

We do worry about their former employees organizing and coordinating the OWS stink-a-thon.

And was there a point to you posting this stoy other than to attempt to associate this group of four men with Conservatives?

Nah there wasn't.

What are you gonna do when they turn out to be Dems?

I'm not worried about Acorn, even if I don't like their philosophy.
I'm also not distracted by five geezers in a Winnebago whose greatest crime in 7 decades has been to yap about wanting to kill urban populations. If that, and "enough weapons to arm everyone at this table" a terrorist makes, then we need a new term for the Islamics.

This article is right up there with the SPLC quoting hate crimes stats and then trying to link them to American nationalist groups. It's bullshit, and they know it. Blacks are kept at the top of hate crimes attacks because they are at war will the Mexican illegal aliens in Los ANgeles, not because the Aryan Army Of Odin is listening to Screwdriver at Nordic Fest.

I think the odds were probably more in the favor of these guys accidentally poisoning themselves instead of their intended targets. The concept of releasing the toxin from a moving car-that just seems pretty complicated for a bunch of old guys.

ACORN steals elections, undermines our democracy and aids and abets tyranny. These geezers were caught planning a murder spree. One has nothing to do with the other. We're talking apples and castor beans here.


The men are Frederick Thomas, 73; Dan Roberts, 67; Ray H. Adams, 65; and Samuel J. Crump, 68. Thomas is from Cleveland, Georgia, and the other three men are from Toccoa.

Clearly, AARP has some radical elements.

Sounds kind of like Obama's buddy Bill Ayers and his Weathermen to me.

No, those guys actually succeeded in killing people.

Clearly, we should listen to the demands of these new radical geriatrics. Is it too much to renew Matlock for another season and guarantee access to early bird buffet specials and Metamucil? :D

See, here's the thing with TNO and his ilk. If these guys are card carrying Republicans who spend their afternoons listening to Rush Limbaugh, to TNO and his ilk, this means that ALL Republicans and people who listen to Rush Limbaugh want to make risin and kill a lot of people. However, to we conservatives, whatever these geezers politics, they're just 4 nutcases who need to be put away. See the difference?

I worry about ACORN, drug cartels from Mexico, and Islamic terrorists (or agents of blow back for you Leftists).


I don't worry about them for the same reasons, but I am concerned.

How much federal funding did these guys get?

This whole thing smells of a setup. Being right in the age bracket of those 4 men, and associating with guys that same age, I know there's a lot of talk about 'fixing' government. Some of it gets just as radical as what these men were supposed to be talking about. The Feds could have the jails full of grandpas, if they wanted to start arresting every older guy who daydreamed about such things.

It's the same as what I read somewhere about satanic something or other in connection with the men. I saw a picture of the 'satanic' involvement. It's a damned firepit in the back yard with a couple of those wooden things on either side that you fill with fluid and burn to keep bugs away.

That depends on whether they were given assault weapons through Fast and Furious. :D
