A group of assholes got together to build a fertilizer bomb to blow up an apartment complex primarily occupied by Somalis.
The trio, members of a militia group that calls itself The Crusaders, wanted to “wake people up,” the DOJ said. They were stockpiling weapons and planned to release a manifesto after the explosion, Beall said at a news conference.
In case there was any doubt as to their asshole status:
Stein also mentioned that Allen had been arrested in a domestic violence case, causing Stein to worry Allen’s girlfriend would talk to police about their plans, the DOJ said.
This one hits a little close to home because the description of the apartment complex, where one of the units was rented out to serve as a mosque… I lived in that complex. Okay, not that specific complex, but one just like it when I was four and five. The Mosque-partment stocked ice cream in the kitchen, something my five year old brain was keenly aware of. A lot of the people living there were immigrants, and my parents were just starting out again after we moved back to the States having fled Kuwait because of Gulf War II.
