Bomb plot suspect fit to stand trial

Font Size:

No, not Boston. Cleveland.

Associated Press:

The last of five bridge bomb-plotting suspects is mentally competent to stand trial, a judge ruled Monday after hearing testimony on the man’s two-decade history of mental health issues.

U.S. District Court Judge David Dowd ruled that 23-year-old Joshua Stafford of Cleveland is able to assist in his defense. The judge set a Thursday hearing on trial arrangements…

No bomb went off and no one was injured in the plot last year in which the intended target was a highway bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron.

Not for lack of trying on their part. They fully intended to blow up that bridge, and kill and maim who knows how many people. But the media lost interest in the case as soon as they found out these guys were members, and in some cases even organizers, of Occupy Cleveland. There was no way to blame the Tea Party, so it fell right off the radar.

The other four would-be-bombers have pleaded guilty and are serving time, by the way. Might be the first you’ve heard about it. Guess it’s not important.

If you still have no idea what I’m talking about because the media has shirked its duty for ideological reasons, you can find all my previous posts on these geniuses here.

P.S. And speaking of bombs, Robert Redford’s wistful ode to the Weather Underground is one.

P.P.S. My apologies to Robert Redford: The Company You Keep is currently in limited release and opens wide on Friday. It may actually double its current box office total. Regardless, Bill Ayers sucks.
