Crooks and Liars:
Alphonso D. Mobley Jr. was allegedly building a bomb with a powerful, but unstable explosive that he was cooking in the kitchen of a vacant Columbus, Ohio house when it detonated, blowing off both hands.
Despite his injuries, the 26 year-old man was charged yesterday with possession and manufacture of a dangerous ordnance alongside 21 year-old Roberto M. Innis Jr.
Uninjured in the Tuesday morning blast, Innis called emergency services to the scene and later allegedly confessed to helping manufacture a dangerous ordnance.
Triacetone triperoxide, better known as TATP, is an old, but powerful explosive used by suicide bombers in the Paris attacks last year. Long known to extremists as ‘the mother of Satan,' it is easily set off by friction, static electricity, or flame.
While there is no word yet on where Mobley learned to make the compound, neighbors tell 10TV that both are ‘sovereign citizens,' a category that the FBI and other law enforcement agencies consider at least as dangerous as Islamic terrorists.
Of course as we know this is not a REAL terrorist because he is not an "Islamic terrorist" and that is the only kind that we are supposed to fear.
Of course in reality this is the more dangerous variety of terrorist, a domestic terrorist who lives, looks, and worships like the majority of Americans.
He could be your neighbor, your workmate, or even your family member.
And yet we are rarely warned to watch out for them because they are not the type of terrorist that justifies beefing up our military or spending millions on Homeland Security.
