That’s how you do it: you look for the weak one in the group, you make sure that he (it’s usually a he) understands just how much trouble he’s in, and then you start to squeeze him, psychologically. You squeeze, and you listen for the pop.
One of five men accused of attempting to blow up the Ohio 82 bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park pleaded guilty Wednesday and agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of his four former co-defendants.
Anthony Hayne, 35, of Cleveland, entered the plea at a hearing in U.S. District Court, where lawyers for the other four suspects indicated they would argue at trial that the foiled bomb plot was a case of entrapment by the FBI and a paid informant.
Mind you: Occupy Wall Street was pretty much a collection of the weak to start with, so this may have been a race to the bottom anyway.
PS: Wonder what else Anthony Hayne knows about? Because I’m sure that he’d love to reduce that prison time further…
The bad news is that he managed to injure two innocent people in the process of blowing himself up; the good news was that the injuries were reportedly minor. The first bomb (blew up a car) took place shortly before the second one; it’s unclear whether the second explosion was a suicide vest gone blessedly right (i.e., it was a suicide vest, not a homicide one) or whether the would-be jihadi screwed up placing a charge.
It’s reported that Swedish media received the usual crowing-about-murdering-for-Shaitan** garbage that accompanies this sort of thing; the ostensible reason for their attack was supposedly Sweden’s 500 troop presence in Afghanistan. Or perhaps it was about Swedish cartoons. Either way, the nihilistic boast made by this person or persons was fortunately not quite true this time:
“Our acts will speak for themselves,” TT quoted the message as saying. “Now your children, your daughters and your sisters will die as our brothers, our sisters and our children are dying.”
