The MSM missed this one, not sure how, but here is a wingnut of the craziest kind, trying to buy sarin to reek havoc on some unsuspecting folks, guess with his IQ he will be someone's ***** in federal prison.. time to take up a collection for kneepads, lube and chapstick... http://www.memphisflyer.com/memphis/Content?oid=oid:15140 The United States of America vs. Demetrius "Van" Crocker had all the elements of the hit television program 24: a white supremacist dealing with a crooked security employee at a weapons arsenal to buy stolen ingredients to make deadly Sarin nerve gas; a plot to use dirty bombs, nerve gas, and conventional weapons against federal and state courthouses and the U.S. Capitol, while the House and Senate were in session; a plot that was foiled by an informant; and a dramatic takedown by FBI agents with their guns drawn seconds after the Sarin canister and package of C-4 explosives changed hands. Except the would-be terrorist, Van Crocker, is a 40-year-old McKenzie, Tennessee, farmhand with an IQ of 85 who was jailed in 2004 for criminal littering in a vandalism case. Crocker scraped together $500 in $20 and $100 bills for the Sarin payoff. In addition to blowing up buildings, he also planned to sew himself a radiation suit and acquire plutonium from a KGB agent by writing to Russian mail-order brides. The "crooked employee" was actually undercover FBI agent Steve Burroughs of Little Rock. The Sarin container was filled with water, and the explosives were mostly inert. The takedown took place in a room at the Comfort Inn in Jackson, with the only shots coming from a hidden video camera. Jurors took about an hour last week to convict Crocker on five counts that could keep him in prison for life. The trial lasted four days. But it was effectively over on the second day, after prosecutors played several hours of secretly recorded conversations in which Crocker poured out his racial hatred, his loathing of the government, his obsession with chemical and conventional weapons, his admiration for Timothy McVeigh (who blew up the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, 11 years ago this week), and a chilling familiarity with basic chemistry that belied his supposedly low-average IQ.
