The U.S. attorney's office in Jackson, Tennessee, said Daniel Cowart, 20, and Paul Schlesselman, 18, were self-described white supremacists who met online through a mutual friend. They have been charged with illegal possession of a sawed-off shotgun, conspiracy to rob a federally licensed gun dealer and making threats against a presidential candidate.
Cowart and Schlesselman were arrested after an aborted robbery attempt last week, prosecutors said in a statement announcing the charges. They made their initial appearances before a federal judge Monday and are scheduled for a bond hearing Thursday in Memphis.
With progress comes protest...
This is what happens when Sarah Palin and John McCain start throwing out terms like "terrorist" and "socialist" at their rallies.
God bless Obama, his family, and this country!!!!!
Who says racism does not exist?
So when do we expect McCain or Palin to say ' I am .... Daniel Cowart, 20, and Paul Schlesselman, 18 ' in their speech?
And I guess this news is supposed to scare me and deter me from voting for Obama, NOT! When you can beat em, scare em....LOL. That's not going to work this time around...
