    This didn't even make the front page of the local paper.
    I guess it's only important to cover if the terrorist in question has a "Arabic" name or is a muslim.


    McKenzie man told undercover agents he wanted to detonate bomb
    Man gets 30 years for bomb plotting


    Demetrius "Van" Crocker of McKenzie, convicted in April of attempting to obtain a chemical weapon and possession of stolen explosives, was sentenced to 30 years in prison Tuesday by U.S. District Judge James Todd in Jackson.

    Crocker, who told undercover FBI agents of his desire to explode a briefcase bomb while Congress was in session, was found guilty by a jury in about 90 minutes in April.

    The 40-year-old farmhand and father of two was convicted of accepting what he thought were ingredients to make Sarin nerve gas and a block of C-4 explosive from undercover agents in October 2004.
    The maximum penalty Crocker could have faced for the convictions would have been a life sentence. Todd did order lifetime supervised release for Crocker once he gets out of prison.

    In all, Crocker was convicted on five charges: one count of attempted possession of a chemical weapon, one count of inducing another person to acquire a chemical weapon, one count of possession of stolen explosives, one count of possession of explosive material with intent to harm an individual or damage or destroy a building, and one count of possession of an unregistered destructive device.

    During the trial, prosecutors introduced video- and audio-taped conversations that Crocker had with undercover agents, laced with profanity, racial slurs and Crocker's open hatred of all things to do with the government.

    Would that we could similarly dispose of the inhabitants of Gitmo and Abu Ghraib in a mere two years, huh?

    How's about we start right now?

    Bush could leave office on a high note.

    If you mean lets get them to trial and sort the guilty from the innocent...I agree.


    If only they had been brought to trial back then, the whole situation would have been sorted by now.

    It seems that due process doesn't protect the guilty. I guess nobody could have predicted that
