Tea Partiers Guilty of Conspiracy, WMD Charges

Three more men charged with planning to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio admitted their roles in the plot Wednesday in a move meant to avoid life prison sentences.

The device was a dud provided by an FBI informant and no one was hurt.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has said the public was never in danger even though the target was a highway bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron.

Two 20-year-old suburban Cleveland men, Connor Stevens of Berea and Brandon Baxter of Lakewood, and Douglas Wright, 26, of Indianapolis, pleaded guilty to three-count ...
Meanwhile Occupy Cleveland continued to support the malefactors.
...Occupy Cleveland held a small press conference where they continued to defend the men and say that they were victims of entrapment. U.S. Attorney Steve Dettelbach said, ”Make no mistake about it—it was their plot. It was the defendants who selected the target they wished to destroy.”
