Greek Prisons are Running Out of Food!

Posted:01 Jun 2012 10:49 AM PDT

Little update via Shenandoah on how bad things really are in Greece despite what people are saying. If you think a collapse of this kind in Greece, (and now Spain) won’t be felt in our banking system you’re dreaming:

At a time when the entire country is being tested by the economic crisis, some people are quite literally on the verge of destitution and hunger. At a time when the empty state coffers can not support any concept of a welfare state, with “frozen” financing towards education and health, the prison system could not be an exception.

The financing for many prisons has decreased to a minimum for some months now, resulting in hundreds of detainees being malnourished and surviving on the charity of local communities.

The latest example is the prison in Corinth where after the supply stoppage from the nearby military camp, the prisoners are at the mercy of God because, as reported by prison staff, not even one grain of rice has been left in their warehouses. When a few days earlier the commander of the camp announced to the prison management the transportation stoppage, citing lack of food supplies even for the soldiers, he shut down the last source of supply for 84 prisoners. The response of some Corinth citizens was immediate as they took it upon themselves to support the prisoners, since all protests to the Justice ministry were fruitless.

Locals are collecting donations to feed them. Anyone think a situation where Europeans can’t get food for their soldiers and prisoners will end well?

 


Stratfor Has a Great Article on the Phoenix Serial Bomber

Posted:01 Jun 2012 07:48 AM PDT

Among other things it has this section describing the different kinds of serial bombers. Not all are “terrorists” as we envision them:

Serial bombmakers vary greatly in skill, motivation and affiliation. Most bombmakers involved with militant groups are, in effect, serial bombers, especially when they are exceptional bombmakers such as those we discussed in the May 17 Security Weekly. These include individuals such as Abu Ibrahim of the Black September Organization, Yahya Ayyash of Hamas or al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s Ibrahim Hassan Tali al-Asiri. Such individuals typically create hundreds, if not thousands, of innovative explosive devices for their groups’ terrorist operations over a span of many years.

However, not all serial bombmakers are associated with a militant group. There is a long history of individuals who have operated as serial bombers. From 1940 to 1956, George Metesky, who was known in the media as “The Mad Bomber,” deployed 33 IEDs, 22 of which detonated, and injured 15 people. Metesky was angry after being denied disability pay following an injury he sustained while working for Consolidated Edison, Inc. After planting two explosive devices in 1940, Metesky observed a self-imposed moratorium on bombing attacks during World War II. He deployed the bulk of his devices — pipe bombs — from 1951 to 1956. He attacked not only Consolidated Edison, but also theaters, the New York subway system, the New York Public Library, Radio City Music Hall, Grand Central Station and other targets. Metesky was arrested after Consolidated Edison personnel managers identified him based on details he provided in threatening letters.

One of the most famous serial bombers in recent years was Theodore Kaczynski, also known as the “Unabomber.” UNABomb was an FBI case name that stood for “University and Airline Bomber” — Kaczynski’s first targets. From May 1978 until April 1995, Kaczynski deployed 16 IEDs that killed a total of three people and injured 23 more. Like the Metesky case, it was Kaczynski’s writings that allowed him to be identified, though it was Kaczynski’s brother who identified him for authorities. As demonstrated in his manifesto, titled Industrial Society and Its Future (1995), Kaczynski was motivated by a fear of technology. He called for a revolution against modern society’s “industrial-technological system.”

Eric Rudolph first came onto the scene in July 1996 when a bomb he planted in Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park detonated during the 1996 Summer Olympics. Rudolph also conducted IED attacks against abortion clinics in Atlanta in 1997 and in Birmingham, Ala., in 1998 and against a gay bar in Atlanta in 1997. Rudolph’s IED attacks killed two and wounded more than 100. Rudolph was motivated by his extreme anti-abortion and anti-homosexual convictions.

Not all serial bombers have intended to kill their targets. From 1994 to 2006, an unidentified bombmaker known by the media as the “Italian Unabomber” planted dozens of small IEDs in various locations in Italy. While many of the IEDs were pipe bombs, the Italian bombmaker also concealed IEDs in cans of tomato paste, cigarette lighters, church votive candles and in items intended to target children, such as bottles of soap bubbles, colored markers and Kinder Eggs. The size of many of these devices suggests that the bombmaker hoped to maim and terrorize his victims but not kill them. A suspect was arrested in the Italian case but was later acquitted, and the case has never been officially solved. Since many serial bombmakers, such as Metesky and Kaczynski, go through periods when they suspend bombmaking activity, it is possible that the Italian bombmaker is still at large and will attack again.

We have to be careful in situations like this to not automatically assign political motives. The whole article is worth your time so check it out.


Seattle Area Jihadi Gets Plea Bargain in Attacks on Military Recrui...

Posted:31 May 2012 07:21 PM PDT

Michael Dale McCright who goes by the name Makhail Jihad is an ex-con career criminal who tried to run military recruiters off the road on the in a clear act of Islamic terrorism. At the time of his arrest he was found to have been in contact with another Muslim terrorist named Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif (Anthony Davis) who along with Walli Mujahidh (Frederick Domingue Jr) was plotting to attack recruiting centers with assault rifles and grenades.

From a 2011 article in The Seattle Times:

An ex-con with possible ties to the alleged ringleader of a plot to attack Seattle’s Military Entrance Processing Station with assault rifles and hand grenades has been charged with assault for allegedly trying to run two Marine recruiters off Interstate 5 near Northgate.

Michael Dale McCright, who prosecutors say uses the nickname “Mikhail Jihad” on the Internet, is facing his “third strike” and a possible life sentence if convicted of the attack.

He has an extensive criminal history, including convictions for first-degree robbery in 2006, assault in 2005 and other felony crimes.

[...]

According to charging documents, at the time of his arrest on July 12, McCright had a telephone that had been used to call Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif. Abdul-Latif and another man were swept up in an FBI-Seattle police sting in June after allegedly plotting to kill federal employees and military recruits at the Military Entrance Processing Station on East Marginal Way over the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

The charging documents say that McCright remains under investigation by the FBI for “possible ties to domestic terrorism.”

[...]

Marine Staff Sgt. Ryan Picklesimer described the driver as a “bearded white male wearing a tightfitting, white knit hat.” The driver slowed, apparently to look at the government plate on Picklesimer’s car, then came alongside and saw the sergeant in his uniform.

“Picklesimer reported, ‘His eyes widened and he appeared to become angry,’ ” and then swerved at the sergeant’s car, forcing Picklesimer to take evasive action to avoid being hit, the charges allege. The sergeant was able to get the car’s license number, and he gave it to police.

McCright was arrested on Sept. 8 after repeatedly refusing to meet with detectives, according to the charges.

Though this was a third strike for the uncooperative Mikhail Jihad, he’s being allowed to cop a plea:

A man with an extensive criminal history and possible terrorist ties has admitted he tried to run two military recruiters off the road on I-5 near Northgate.

In a plea agreement, Michael McCright, also known as Mikhail Jihad, pleaded guilty to charges that will not count under the state’s three-strikes law. The Seattle Times reports McCright could have faced a life sentence if convicted under the three strikes rule.

Prosecutors will ask that a judge sentence McCright to four and a half years in prison for convictions on felony harassment and attempted malicious mischief.

The 28-year-old Jihad will be out when he’s in his early 30s – anyone think he won’t try something again? This man was involved with people plotting terror attacks on America, is a violent career criminal and this was his third strike yet he’s able to plead out and get less than five years. Talk about Hug-a-Thug justice. His next victims should sue the people who handled this case.
