3 Men Charged with Terror Conspiracy Ahead of NATOSubmitted by Iron-man01 on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 23:46
Three NATO Summit protesters charged with plotting terrorist acts in Chicago reportedly planned to attack President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home and firebomb a number of police stations, according to authorities.
The trio was arrested Wednesday in a nighttime raid in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the South Side. They're accused of trying to make Molotov cocktails ahead of the two-day NATO summit that starts Sunday.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Chicago police infiltrated the group and watched the men make Molotov cocktails. One defendant, The paper reports, allegedly said “the city doesn’t know what it’s in for” and “after NATO, the city will never be the same,” prosecutors alleged in court documents.
“We have people watching them do it,” one law enforcement source told The Sun-Times.
Defense attorneys told a judge on Saturday that undercover police are the ones who brought the Molotov cocktails, and that their clients were entrapped.
