Matthew Krueger Charged With Felonies in Coast Guard Break-In, Alleged Bomb Threat
I’m going to leave this here because all day Sunday & Monday the right-wing blogs were screeching & hyperventilating over this attack, assuming the perpetrator would be Muslim. Now that it has turned out to be a white guy? *crickets*
Since he’s neither a Muslim nor a recent convert, this act will likely be chalked up as an aberration by a lone wolf due to stress and/or mental illness, or something along those lines. The wingnuts might also look into his background and see if he has ever been a registered Democrat, but for the time being they seem intent on pointedly ignoring the story.
The MSM in general appears to have largely lost interest also.
I am SO sick of this crap.
GRAND HAVEN, MI - Matthew Lawrence Krueger, 33, has been charged with two felonies in connection with Sunday’s attack on the U.S. Coast Guard facility in Grand Haven.
Krueger was arraigned shortly after 3 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9, about a half-hour after an Ottawa County judge signed an arrest warrant on charges of making a false report or threat of terrorism, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and malicious destruction of personal property $1,000-$20,000, which carries a maximum five-year sentence. […]
Krueger looked solemn and answered the judge’s yes-or-no questions clearly. Krueger declined to make a statement on bond when invited to, and he asked the judge to appoint a public defender. Bunce appointed James Piper of Grand Haven. […]
It looks like this is probably the Michigan law he’s being charged under:
