Three Chicago Occupiers (#NATO3 ) Brian Church, Jared Chase & Brent Vincent Betterly Arrested On Domestic Terror Charges Ahead Of NATO Protests – Plotted To Firebomb Obama’s Campaign HQ, Rahm Emanuel’s Home & Shoot Up Police Stations
Yup, they are just like the Tea party …
Three men, Brian Church, Jared Chase & Brent Vincent Betterly (#NATO3 ) have been arrested in Chicago, IL ahead of the NATO protests, and charged with possession of an explosive or incendiary device, conspiracy to commit terrorism and providing material support to terrorism. They allegedly planned to attack four police stations with the Molotov cocktails in hopes of slowing down the police response to the higher-profile attacks accused like that of attacks on President Obama’s campaign headquarters, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home.
A band of out-of-state “domestic terrorists” was accused Saturday of planning to attack President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home — and firebomb police stations and squad cars — declaring that after the NATO Summit “the city will never be the same,” police and prosecutors said.
One of the conspirators warned: “The city doesn’t know what it’s in for,” prosecutors said.
But undercover Chicago Police officers infiltrated the group of NATO Summit protesters in recent weeks. They were with the protesters while they allegedly made Molotov cocktails — bottles filled with flammable liquid that are used as firebombs, sources said.
“We have people watching them do it,” one law enforcement source told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The trio includes Brian Church, 27, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Jared Chase, 24, of Keene, N.H.; and Brent Vincent Betterly, 24, who told police he lives in Massachusetts. Each was ordered held on a $1.5 million bond Saturday.
