Upcoming trial in Austin domestic terrorism case?
(Via Instapundit) Apparently at least one member of the Austin left-activist community was upset to at the way that one of their ‘own’ betrayed them. And by ‘betrayed them’ I mean ‘revealed details of a terrorist plot to the FBI:’
A Texas woman faces trial this month in Austin on charges she threatened to kill a government informant who infiltrated an Austin-based group that planned to bomb the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., last fall.
Katyanne Marie Kibby, 25, was indicted in June by a federal grand jury in Austin. She is accused of retaliating against Brandon Darby, the community activist-turned-informant who helped federal prosecutors win convictions against Bradley Neal Crowder, 24, and David Guy McKay, 23.
Prosecutors say the e-mail threat was made Jan. 10. That was two days after Crowder reached a plea bargain with federal prosecutors in Minneapolis for his role in the plot to build Molotov cocktails and attack the GOP convention in September 2008.
See also Say Anything – and, speaking as somebody who was actually at the RNC, you’ll understand that I’m not all that sympathetic to the plight of people who, you know, wanted to kill me. And yes: that’s a fair attitude for me to take. When you build an incendiary device and plan to throw it in my general direction, I get to assume that you’d be happy if I got it in the face.
Don’t like it? Don’t make bombs. Or stand next to the people who do.
