Two men affiliated with the New Black Panther Party allegedly planned to murder Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson and St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch, and bomb the Gateway Arch.
The two men who go by the names Brandon Muhammad and Ali, bought a pipe bomb. They intended to buy more but couldn’t afford it. One man’s girlfriend helped them buy the bombs by using her EBT card (Electronic Benefit Transfer card). Yes that is the card that is normally used to help families who are struggling financially, to buy groceries.
Both men were indicted last week on weapons charges when Baldwin purchased two hi-point .45-caliber pistols intended for someone else.
Between November 1st and 13th, Muhammad purchased the two guns at a Cabela’s in Hazelwood, and they were arrested on November 21st. Additional charges for the planned bombing and murders are expected to be filed.
