    Right-winger arrested with explosives outside Dearborn mosque

    A 63-year-old Southern California man who had explosives in his vehicle was arrested outside one of the nation's largest mosques in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, authorities in Michigan said.

    Dearborn police said Roger Stockham was arraigned Wednesday on one count of making a false report or threat of terrorism and one count of possessing explosives with an unlawful intent. Stockham had a large but undisclosed quantity of class-C fireworks including M-80s, which are outlawed in Michigan, Chief Ronald Haddad said.

    Haddad said Stockham was arrested Monday evening without incident in the parking lot of Islamic Center of America, while a large group was gathered inside. He said police received a 911 call from a resident.

    Haddad said authorities believe Stockham was acting alone but still take him "very seriously." He said Stockham has "a long history of anti-government activities," though he declined to elaborate.

    The suspect was arrested in the parking lot of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn on Monday, while hundreds were inside the mosque that sits along Ford Road, police said. He came to the city because of its large Arab-American and Muslim population, police said.

    Roger Stockham, 63, was arraigned Wednesday on one count on a threat of terrorism or false report and one count of explosive-possession of bombs with unlawful intent for possession of Class C fireworks, Dearborn Police said. "He's very dangerous," Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad told the Free Press. "We took his threat to be very serious." Haddad said the man was previously known to law enforcement officials in other parts of the country. "He's had a long history of being angry with the United States government," Haddad said.

    Stockham, in jail on a $500,000 bond, drove from California to Dearborn and was caught with a car packed with high-end fireworks. The FBI has been notified about the incident, Haddad said. "He picked Dearborn as a stop because of the huge Arab and Muslim population," Haddad said.

    An employee at a local bar called police after overhearing violent threats allegedly made by the man, Islamic Center of America Executive Administrator Kassem Allie said. The employee was afraid that Stockham was going to target Muslims or Arabs in the area, he said.

    snip

    On a MySpace profile that likely belongs to Stockham, he writes that he's happy with how much he's lived. "Ready for it to be over, but have a policy I contend with often: So long as I am alive, I can't play dead," Stockham apparently writes.

    He writes that he has "four ex-wives" is "on meds and doing better than my history would predict." He lists his heroes as Thomas Jefferson and Tom Payne.
    This is getting just as old as accusing conservatives of racism. Soon, if it isn't already happening, an accusation like this will simply result in KNOWING that the leftists are simply lying for political gain and it won't even matter if the accusation is accurate. Crying wolf and all that.........

    13. Time to look up the definition of 'lie'.

    It's hardly even misleading as there is a high likelihood that this guy watches Fox news and certainly isn't a liberal.

    Rec to counter unrec.

    oe; thanks for at least admitting the unrec. You ain't no coward.

    The peace loving Muslims of Dearborn? This can't be true, these are just hard working Americans!

    He's a nutjob. He hates the government, and doesn't really care which party is in power. He's one of the guys who came back from Vietnam FUBAR.

    He hates muslims, yet claims to be a convert. I don't know if this is a state or federal offense. If it's a state offense, well, he will likely be incarcerated at one of the fine institutions in Ionia, since that is where the supermax prison is located and also where the psychiatric prison is located. Either way, he'll be getting his Depakote and/or Seroquel for the rest of his life.


    The mosque he allegedly tried to blow up is a local landmark. It's one of the more impressive ones around, it looks like something out of Arabian Nights.

    Did you read the article? He's a nutjob. He hated the government when Bush was president, and he hates the government now that Obama is president. He's not on the left, he's not on the right. He's on the opposite side of whomever is pissing him off at any given moment.

    I have a friend with half a thumb who might disagree.

    Ruh-roh. So, to the DU, anyone pissed at the gubmint is a right winger...even though said 'right winger' wanted to kill Bush. Um, if you say so.

    12. I don't have to prove anything

    It is my opinion that the guy is a right-winger based on the information provided. You can think whatever you want about it: that would be your opinion. See how that works?

    He converted to Islam so he'd have access to the Mosque's toilets.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
