Terrorist Plot in the U.S. foiled!

The FBI has arrested a man for threatening to kill Federal judges. He did so because he of a recent decision the judges made regarding hand guns. ThinkProgress has the story.
Today, FBI agents went to the New Jersey home of white supremacist blogger/radio host Hal Turner and arrested him “on a federal complaint filed in Chicago alleging that he made internet postings threatening to assault and murder three federal appeals court judges in Chicago in retaliation for their recent ruling upholding handgun bans in Chicago and a suburb,” according to a statement released by the Justice Department. A summary of Turner’s dangerous tirade against the judges:

Internet postings on June 2 and 3 proclaimed “outrage” over the June 2, 2009, handgun decision by Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook and Judges Richard Posner and William Bauer, of the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, further stating, among other things: “Let me be the first to say this plainly: These Judges deserve to be killed.” The postings included photographs, phone numbers, work address and room numbers of these judges, along with a photo of the building in which they work and a map of its location.

When will people realize that there is going to be a rise in the amount of violence by domestic terrorism. These people are just as dangerous as foreign terrorism. Hate is hate and violence is violence. Your loved ones are no less dead when they are shot by a foreign terrorist than a domestic terrorist.

We must stand up against all forms of violence, even if they come from our own countrymen.
