Protesters Outside Republican Convention Charged With Terrorism Conspiracy

On Wednesday, Ramsey County, MN, “prosecutors charged eight people with conspiring to cause a riot as part of a terrorist act,” reports the Los Angeles Times. The “suspects are leading members of the [Republican National Convention] Welcoming Committee, a self-described anarchist coalition. For at least two years, the group mapped out violent methods to disrupt the convention and prevent delegates from entering the Xcel Energy Center in downtown St. Paul … The group allegedly had considered barricading bridges, spraying delegates with urine and possibly kidnapping delegates.”
