Facebook used to help plot womens clinic bombing, authorities say
CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - A Concord man accused of providing information on building explosive materials to a potential bomber is behind bars in Greensboro.
According to U.S. Attorney John W. Stone Junior, 26-year-old Justin Carl Moose was arrested Tuesday on charges of providing information on how to make a bomb to a person he believed was planning to bomb a women’s health clinic in North Carolina.
Moose used Facebook, a social networking site, to advocate violence against women’s healthcare clinics, according to the criminal complaint, specifically locations where abortions are performed and the healthcare professionals employed at these facilities.
Under one of his pictures on Facebook, Moose describes himself as “whatever you may think about me, you’re probably right. Extremist, Radical, Fundamentalist…? Yep! Terrorists…? Well…. I prefer the term ‘freedom Fighter’. ‘End abortion by any means necessary and at any cost’. ‘Save a live, Shoot an abortionist’ “
During a recorded conversation, Moose referred to himself as the “Christian counterpart of Usama Bin Laden [sic].”
According to the complaint, Moose is a part of a group called the Army of God, which is considered a Christian terrorist anti-abortion organization that sanctions the use of force to combat abortion.
