Five Mostly Peaceful Anarchists Charged With Trying to Blow Up Cleveland Bridge

Posted by on May 01, 2012 at 9:41 am

Must just be a coincidence the radical left and OWS types have been planning chaos for May Day.

Five people described as anarchists were arrested Monday in a Cleveland-area park for trying to blow up a bridge, sources tell Fox News.

The public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were inoperable and controlled by an undercover FBI employee, according to sources close to the investigation.

Charges were filed against the defendants Tuesday morning in Cleveland. Court documents say three of the suspects are self-proclaimed anarchists who formed a small group and considered a series of plots over several months.

The FBI has a press conference scheduled for 10 am.

Meanwhile, in another wild coincidence, envelopes with white powder began showing up at NYC banks Monday. Nothing to do with these peaceful marauders, I’m sure.

Update: The goons have been identified.

Douglas L. Wright, 26, Brandon L. Baxter, 20, and Anthony Hayne, 35, were arrested by members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force on April 30 on charges of conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce.  Also arrested were Connor C. Stevens, 20, and Joshua S. Stafford, 23.

    If the guy second from the right claimed that he was reacting to his hairstyule, he just might have a decent shot at an aquittal.
