WASHINGTON — Federal agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 102 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives said today.
In court records unsealed today in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn., federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee
Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.
Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of ATF’s Nashville field office, said the two men planned to shoot 88 black people and decapitate another 14. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.
The men also sought to go on a national killing spree after the Tennessee murders, with Obama as its final target, Cavanaugh told The Associated Press.
“They said that would be their last, final act — that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama,” Cavanaugh said. “They didn’t believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying.”
An Obama spokeswoman traveling with the senator in Pennsylvania had no immediate comment.
The men, Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of West Helena, Ark., are being held without bond. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.
Attorney Joe Byrd, who has been hired to represent Cowart, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.
Cowart and Schlesselman are charged with possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, and threatening a candidate for president.
The investigation is continuing, and more charges are possible, Cavanaugh said. The court records say Cowart and Schlesselman also bought nylon rope and ski masks to use in a robbery or home invasion to fund their spree, during which they allegedly planned to go from state to state and kill people.
For the Obama plot, the legal documents show, Cowart and Schlesselman “planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama shooting at him from the windows.”
“Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt,” the court complaint states. “Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt.” Cavanaugh said there’s no evidence — so far — that others were willing to assist Cowart and Schlesselman with the plot.
He said authorities took the threats very seriously.
“They seemed determined to do it,” Cavanaugh said. “Even if they were just to try it, it would be a trail of tears around the South.”
R&B crooner Lyfe Jennings has reportedly been arrested by Georgia authorities for allegedly firing a gun and leading police on a high speed chase. According to TMZ, authorities responded to a call of gunshots fired and they saw Jennings fleeing from the scene in a Corvette. Jennings would lead them on a high speed chase but eventually crashed.
Jennings was charged with felony weapon possession by a convicted felon. He was also charged with eluding officers, discharging a firearm near a public highway and refusing to take the sobriety test.
NEW YORK – Just two weeks after a Nobel Prize highlighted theoretical work on subatomic particles, physicists are announcing a startling discovery about a much more familiar form of matter: Scotch tape. It turns out that if you peel the popular adhesive tape off its roll in a vacuum chamber, it emits X-rays. The researchers even made an X-ray image of one of their fingers. Who knew? Actually, more than 50 years ago, some Russian scientists reported evidence of X-rays from peeling sticky tape off glass. But the new work demonstrates that you can get a lot of X-rays, a study co-author says.
The Republicans were like clean that picture up....
"We know shes a redneck but lets not dress her like one"......
WASHINGTON - Lipstick isn't the only difference between America's top hockey mom and a pit bull. Sarah Palin also has a spectacular new wardrobe, and Republican campaign donors picked up the breathtaking tab. The Republican National Committee spent $150,000 on clothing and accessories for the vice presidential candidate and her family since early September, according to a report by the Politico Web site.
Yeah I read that the sold the birth place of hip hop, even though it seems like this should be a place held in reverence, i think that HIP-HOP has become a world wide culture. Being that it grew and spread from the Bronx to every inch of the world, we should let one location represent HIP HOP. It is in so many house and so many streets that, the whole world is 1520 Sedgwick Ave. I hope the people that live there get to stay in their apartments. Truth be told one of the richer dudes in hip hop should have brought the building for 7 mil thats Ace of Spade money..........
The building that helped give birth to Hip-Hop was sold to a new owner last week for $7 million dollars, AllHipHop.com has confirmed.
Developer Mark Karasick outbid the current tenants for 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, which is located in the Bronx.
Kool Herc and his sister threw a party on August 11, 1973, in the first floor recreational room of 1520 Sedgwick Avenue.
The address is recognized as the place that Kool Herc hosted his first parties with his sister Cindy, eventually leading to the birth of Hip-Hop music in the early 1970’s.
Tenants had hoped to purchase the 100-unit building unit to preserve the buildings legacy as well as to prevent Karasick from raising rents in order to push the current residents out of their apartments.
In July of 2007, 1520 Sedgwick was declared eligible to be listed as a state and federal landmark.
Kool Herc told reporters he was disappointed that no one from the Hip-Hop community “stepped up to the table in some form of fashion” to show support.
The sale marks a two-year battle for the residents, who now fear that their rents will be raised in order to cover the costs associated with selling the building.
