Demetrius Pitts charged in Cleveland bomb plot after FBI sting

This time and effort could have been spent stopping a former Maryland newspaper employee who was all over social media advertising he wants to take out the paper with employees telling cops the same thing.

the FBI took a closer look and determined that Pitts was interested in joining al Qaeda, training overseas and returning to the U.S. to stage an attack, the complaint said.

Pitts didn’t want to meet any terrorists, didn’t want to plan, didn’t want to do anything except watch. This is the same guy the FIB ‘determined’ wanted to go to the ME and train with the nasties.

Pitts couldn’t even figure out how to get a bus pass with FIB help. The FIB admits this clown couldn’t pull this off by himself. This is a sad joke.

So he wants to behead Trump, so does all of Hollywood. I don’t see the FIB arresting this has been. Oh yah, Griffin and the FIB are on the same side.

We are better off putting this guy where he can’t hurt himself or anyone else but… This is closer to a traffic stop than a major terrorism bust. This another half baked sting op focused on a halfwit, sort of wannabe to make the FIB look like it is doing something. Pathetic.

Think about that Maryland.

An Ohio man was charged Monday with plotting a Fourth of July terrorist bombing in Cleveland after a sting operation by the FBI, which gave him a bus pass so he could travel to scope out targets.

“I’m gonna be downtown when the thing go off,” Demetrius Pitts, 48, told an undercover FBI employee posing as an al Qaeda sympathizer, according to a federal complaint. “I’m gonna be somewhere ’cause I wanna see it go off.”

 There’s no indication that Pitts could have carried off any attack on his own. The criminal complaint suggests he viewed his role as planning and surveillance and did not want to be involved in obtaining or building any explosives.

After more alarming Facebook comments in 2017, the FBI took a closer look and determined that Pitts was interested in joining al Qaeda, training overseas and returning to the U.S. to stage an attack, the complaint said.

An undercover FBI employee met with Pitts and began recording their conversations, in which he fantasized about beheading President Donald Trump, attacking U.S. soldiers, and sowing terror in Cleveland on Independence Day.

“I’m trying to figure out something that would shake them up on the 4th of July,” he said in one recording.

An FBI informant provided Pitts with a bus pass so he could get to downtown Cleveland to take photos of bombing targets. He allegedly pledged allegiance to terrorist leaders in videos made with a cellphone — which was also provided by the FBI. His passcode for the phone wasn’t exactly a stumper: 0704, the date of the supposed attack…

Be seeing you
