Update on Militia Plot

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) – A federal judge is explaining why she denied bond for the four elderly Georgia men accused of plotting terror attacks against government officials. U.S. Magistrate Susan Cole said in a written order this week that “there are no conditions of release for any of the defendants that will reasonably assure the safety of the community.”

Investigators accused 73-year-old Frederick Thomas and 67-year-old Dan Roberts of conspiring to obtain an explosive and possessing an unregistered silencer. Authorities also charged 55-year-old Ray Adams and 68-year-old Samuel Crump with conspiring and attempting to make ricin, a biological toxin.

The men, who have pleaded not guilty, were denied bond last week. But Cole didn’t release the 28-page order explaining her decision until Monday.

    These old terrorists are the worst kind, they groom the young and not so young to take over and continue the same history of violence..Let them stay in jail and marinate on their ruined lives and the lives of the people they have destroyed over their lifetime…
