Apparently the Dept of Justice hit a guy with terrorism charges for trying to derail an Amtrak train – the exact thing that has happened a few times recently.
But he wasn’t an Islamist as some might have hoped – he was an alt-right white supremacist:
A white man who was involved with neo-Nazi groups and who attended a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville has been charged with terrorism for attempting to wreck an Amtrak train, according to a criminal complaint filed in US District Court.
Taylor Michael Wilson, 26, of St. Charles, Missouri, was first arrested back in October on state charges after he entered a secure area of an Amtrak passenger train in rural Nebraska, the complaint states.
He allegedly played with the controls and applied the emergency brakes, causing the train to stop with intent to harm those aboard, the complaint states. Wilson, who had a fully loaded weapon on him, was charged with use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and felony criminal mischief, both state charges.
Thank goodness the idiot was pretty inept – that was his plan? Hit the emergency brakes? But who knows what else he might have pulled off before, or planned afterward…
He was released on a partially secured bond on December 11, court documents state. But a further search warrant and investigation from the FBI led to the discovery of a stash of firearms at his residence and several connections to what the complaint describes as white supremacist groups. He was arrested again on December 23 and he was ordered detained on January 2, according to the complaint.
Investigators found an arsenal of weapons, ammunition and a hand-made shield at his residence and learned that he had told his roommate he was interested in killing black people, according to the criminal complaint.
This guy was at the same far right rally where a woman was killed, and tried to plan a terror attack on people. This is no joke – this doesn’t belong in America from any partisan side…
