Thanks in part to Black Lives Matter rhetoric and its legitimization by the media, terrorist threats do not come exclusively from Islam:
A convicted felon who claims he wanted to shoot cops is behind bars in connection with the explosives device planted outside of a Trussville [Alabama] elementary school.
Authorities [on Thursday] announced state charges against 35-year-old Zachary Edwards and 34-year-old Raphel Dilligard, both of eastern Birmingham. They are charged with possession of a hoax destructive device, rendering false alarm and making terrorist threats, said Trussville police Capt. Jeff Bridges. …
Edwards claimed to be a member of the Black Panthers and the Black Mafia, but authorities have not yet confirmed his reported associations with any organized group. …
Teams of lawmen responded to Magnolia Elementary School after a device was found on a car in the school parking lot. …
Once brought in for questioning, both gave confessions. Edwards admitted to planting the device, and said his plan was to get all police officers and first responders in one place so he could shoot them. “I guess he doesn’t like cops,” Bridges said.
Edwards also discussed his interest in starting a race war. The school is reportedly majority white.
As is often the case with terrorism, lives may have been spared by evildoer incompetence:
The device – which was disabled in nearby woods – did contain gun powder. “It was painstakingly put together and it also had most of what you need to make a bomb,” [ATF agent Dave] Hyche said. He said, however, that there was no way the device could have detonated, but he didn’t elaborate.
Whether it was intended to explode is unclear. That pouring a malevolent ideology into the heads of bitter, mentally defective losers will eventually result in lost lives is clear as day.
