4 anarchists sentenced in Cleveland bridge bomb plot
Members of the "Revolutionary People's Party" face sentences ranging from six to 11 and a half years

Four young self-described anarchists caught planning to blow up an Ohio bridge in an FBI sting operation have received sentences ranging from six to 11½ years in federal prison.

Anthony M. Hayne, 35, of Cleveland, the first to plead guilty and the last of the four to be sentenced, received a six-year term Friday after apologizing in U.S. District Court in Cleveland, Ohio, public radio station WKSU reported. A fifth defendant, Joshua S. Stafford, 23, is undergoing a psychiatric examination.

**SNIP**

The men had ties to the Occupy Movement but decided it wasn’t proactive enough, so they secretly formed an anarchist group — calling itself the Revolutionary People’s Party — and took steps to blow up a highway bridge near Cleveland after discussing bombing other targets, including a Ku Klux Klan gathering spot and a Federal Reserve Bank, court documents allege.

I drive across this historic bridge every day. Couple miles from the Bogus Villa. I’m glad to see these young punk a-holes going to prison. They’ll make someone nice “girlfriends.”

Don’t waste taxpayers’ money to keep that subhuman terrorist filth alive. I’ll donate 5 230gr HP .45cal ACPs to headshoot all five. I’ll volunteer to shoot ‘em, N/C.

The ONLY reason the racists at the SPLC even wrote this article is because these guys are white.

Yep - it's almost as if maybe they have one of theirs acting as a ringleader/organizer, setting up the ops just so they can look good.
