Houston Man Arrested Trying To Plant Bomb At Confederate Statue

With much of the US undergoing a broad revulsion against Confederate statues in the days since the Charlotesville clashes, it was only a matter of time before someone took matters one step too far. This happened today when a Houston man was arrested on allegations he tried to plant explosives at the statue of Confederate officer Richard Dowling in Hermann Park, according to Chron.com citing law enforcement officials.

Needless to say, the suspect was not fully "with it", and when confronted Saturday night in the park, the man tried to drink the liquid explosives, one of the sources said. The man was not identified by name but the sources said he had previously been convicted in 2014 and given five years probation for storing explosives.

The unnamed man was arrested about 11 p.m. Saturday in the park, a source said, following a day of protests that drew hundreds of people to Sam Houston Park protesting a Spirit of the Confederacy statue. The Saturday event also drew counter-protesters.

The details of the alleged attack emerged as authorities evacuated a block in a Museum District neighborhood near Rice University Monday after finding hazardous materials inside of a house. FBI, ATF, Houston Police on scene near Rice University Houston Police said they were responding to a "special assignment" in the 2000 block of Albans, near Rice University.

The searches on Monday followed an all-night "enforcement operation" led by the FBI, with the Chron reporting the full details:

Residents living on Albans Road, between Hazard and Wilton streets, left their homes about 10 a.m., according to an emergency alert from the city of Houston. The alert warned residents that disposing of the material could cause loud noises, smoke and damage to nearby property.


The source of the commotion was a single house at 2025 Albans, according to the Houston Police Department. Investigators were in and out the house all morning. By 9:15 a.m., FBI agents had set up a blue tent on the front lawn, presumably to review evidence. An agent wheeled a large plastic bin labeled "sample collection" toward the roped-off house.


Larry Satterwhite, an assistant Houston police chief who oversees the Homeland Security command, said "significant hazardous materiels" were found at the home, but didn't say what type they were.
"It's a lot," he said. "There's a significant amount of material in them ... Some very hazardous materials were found."

Around 8:30am on Monday a Hazmat unit arrived with law enforcement personnel wearing shirts including "FBI Technical Hazards Response Unit" and "FBI Evidence Response Team" swarmed the block.

This is not the first time this particular address had been raided for potential explosives:

Federal agents have raided 2025 Albans before. In 2013, a multi-agency team stormed the home owned by Houston art community staple Cecily E. Horton, and her husband, Andrew Schneck. Agents also searched a Memorial-area homed then owned by the couple and a condo in Bryan.


Officials said at the time that the couple's 22-year-old Andrew Cecil Earhart Schneck was the focus of the law enforcement interest. A source initially said the raid was sparked by chemicals that could be used to make nerve gas or tear gas. After combing through all three scenes, the FBI found a military-grade explosive called picric acid at the Memorial area home on Fall River.


The following year, the younger Schneck was sentenced to five years of probation after pleading guilty in federal court to knowingly storing explosives. In 2016, a judge released him from probation ahead of schedule.

As the Chron adds, noted Houston defense attorney Dick DeGuerin lives nearby. He said a fire captain told him this morning he and his wife, who has a broken knee, should evacuate their home. "They just told us to evacuate, and they told us it's pretty bad," DeGuerin said. He said the law enforcement response Monday was "an order of magnitude" greater than the response to the hazmat situation at the same house in 2013.

In that instance, DeGuerin said authorities learned that a young man who lives there with his parents had ordered explosive materials over the internet.  Travis Broesche, another neighbor, said he wasn't too concerned by the raid. "I'm appreciative of law enforcement," said Broesche.

And while one hopes that all future statue removal follow the "proper protocol", one can't help but wonder if this incident is just the start of a broader and more violent revulsion to historical US landmarks, controversial or otherwise.

The Jews must be feeling their assholes puckering up a bit, as the Goy are getting wise to their bullshit.

That creep Signer knowingly allowed problems to happen in Charlottesville, by telling the police to stand down. Of course, the local synagogue was well-protected (by rooftop snipers, no less). Signer's a member there (confirmed via his Twitter feed, and relevant Fartbook links).

The desperation to silence websites like Daily Stormer, Stormfront, and other White Right discussion forums is simply a move to curtail the growth of anti-Chosenite sentiments among the broader public, but it won't work...the US has reached saturation levels with Kosher-krap. Even Chaim Weitzmann warned about that, in 1949.

Can you smell what's cooking, Schlomo?

The closer their system comes to collapse, the more desperate they get.  They are starting to throw everything against the wall to see what sticks. The ME, NK, race wars. Everything to keep people from wondering why, if the United States is the most prosperous nation on the planet, do we feel like we are falling behind and cannot catch up.If a large minority ever came to grips with just how far back we are due to their private money issued at interest there would be one more nation that (((they))) are no longer welcome.  It boils my blood to think what has been stolen in terms of productivity advances in the last 100 years. We should be working 16 hour weeks to take care of all of our needs. But nope, 40,50,60 hours just to stay ahead of the debt monster.(((They))) are really going to have to rewrite history if that little secret ever gets out to the public in spite of (((their))) education system.pods

@ Pods:

Bravo, and 100% right!

Our entire social model is a shell game run by Parasites. We put our money on the table, and the Parasites make it disappear, to redistribute it to their equally-Parasitic pals.

America is quickly reaching the point where 1 of 2 things will happen:

The Hosts (read as 'productive class') will either kill the Parasites, (and be rejuvenated after a period of inner turmoil), or the Parasites will win, in which case America will become the next "violent 3rd-world nation".

People are wising-up to (((them))). Of personal note, a longtime friend recently told me that "he thought I was crazy for some of the stuff I was saying back then (90's), but he realizes now that I was right".

The context it was said in, has to do with this:

Lakewood (aka the Chosenite capital of the US) was recently newsworthy, due to a huge amount of welfare fraud that goes on in the Jew community. It's been going on for 50 years, but a few finally got busted.

This charity for sick children was also being taken for a ride, as Chosenites were getting 14% of distributed funds, even though they comprise 2% of NJ's kid population.


And y'all thought Vampires weren't real.

We're about to have some millenials go full retard in the People's Republic of Massachusetts.  There are stories of millenials planning protests of Civil War statues in Massachusetts.  You know the statues, the ones that honor the white soldiers that fought to free the slaves and stop the South from seceeding.  The millenials education is so lacking it is sad.

It's funny, I've been thinking about whether there are other examples int he world, and I just thought of one. My wife's family originated in Inner Mongolia (in north/central China), and that area is full of statues of Genghis Khan. When you consider the sheer scale of mass murder this guy has committed, you would think that the Chinese would have torn all the statues down. But they didn't, because he's an important historical figure.

Also thinking of over there, one thing they *did* tear down during the Cultural Revolution was any semi-recent monument or any historical figure that would represent opposition to the regime. Let that sink in a moment.

Not a dis against your commend but:Civil War wasn't about slavery. Lincoln couldn't give a shit about the blacks. He wanted to ship them back to Mother Africa or the Caribbean. Civil War was about State's rights over Federal dominationLincoln wanted to keep slavery intact in the South if the South would stay in the Union. Once they bolted, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation as a nuclear option against their secession. All of our textbooks on the Civil War are Identity Politics fake news.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/8319858/Abra…

Sure his position evolved like Hellary's positiopn on TPP and Keystone "evolved".The Huff Poo post was done purposefully to show that even Snowflake media calls bullshit on Lincoln doing the Civil War on behalf of black chattel. It was a strategic attack against the South's ability to mount a defense. If they couldn't sell cotton or ag products, they couldn't pay to fight the North
