A pair claiming to be Black Panthers placed an explosive device outside a majority white elementary school in Alabama and plotted to kill responding cops to "start a race war," but CNN and others didn't feel this was newsworthy.
A convicted felon who claims he wanted to shoot cops is behind bars in connection with the explosives device planted outside of a Trussville elementary school.
The warrants were issued this morning after the week-long probe by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Trussville police, the Alabama State Fire Marshal's Office, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.It appears they tried to frame Hispanics:
Lawmen responded en masse to Magnolia Elementary School on Wednesday, Nov. 16, after they received a 911 from a woman who reported seeing a Hispanic male place the package on a pickup truck that belonged to a school cafeteria worker. The package was a box with wires and timer attached.Fortunately, they were not very intelligent:
The first break in the case came when investigators were able to trace that 911 to a cell phone that had once been owned by Edwards, said Hyche and Bridges. The 911 call was actually placed by Edwards, who disguised his voice to try to sound like a woman."Black Panthers" and "Black Mafia" members plotting to kill cops and white kids to start a "race war."
You'd think that would be a story the American people might find interesting.
CNN ignored the story entirely. Same goes for NBC News. A Google News search shows it mostly only made local news and a few right-wing sites like Breitbart and The Daily Caller.
I'm sure if this was right-wing Neo-Nazis rather than Black Panthers the story would have similarly been ignored.
