    Considering the thread about the guy who attacked people for registering voters, I figure each side manages to go a couple of weeks at best before some jack ass makes a poor example of himself across the news.

    I'm more bothered by the idea of spreading the ability to make explosives. I'm wondering what everyone thinks a fair sentence is. My gut says death penalty for spreading info on how to make IEDs and the like, but that info is already out there and I'm sure anybody who really wants to can find it. Still, he wanted to teach people how to act like jihadis. If the death penalty is too much, I say he spends life in prison breaking himself over a hammer.

    More than far-right sympathies or devil worship, I suspect not getting laid the the #1 issue with this kid.

    To be completely honest making an explosive isn’t that difficult.

    Hell, the fucking ingredient list for shit is online I’m sure. The issue is how to build it without blowing yourself up

    Far-left misses 6 old people at a voter registration event. Conservatives on here go ape shit ballistic. Far-right Incel anarchist distributes Bomb making material and wants to blow up a huge list of people. Conservatives defend him in the weirdest way imaginable.

    I'll take a page out of Luckyshots playbook here, I think this kid was just a crazy person. Wasn't necessarily a far right type.

    Could this be considered treason?

    Who the fuck is defending him? You're the 5th post in this thread and not a single person above you has defended the guy. What the hell is wrong with you? You just shit-posting now?

    Seriously, fuck this dude (not you, the soldier) and I hope he gets the penal system shoved well and truly down his throat. It looks like he just got into the military and likely doesn't know a fucking thing about explosives...a Private in the infantry? Yeah, he's most likely just an internet tough guy. As @Gregolian stated many of the basic ingredients lists can be found online. There's no way this idiot gained any kind of knowledge about this stuff from the military.

    "His instructions for the car bomb involved filling the car with explosive material and putting a ping pong ball full of a chemical into the gas tank. An FBI bomb technician determined Smith’s instructions would not result in a viable explosive device."

    Yeah, the guy is a wanna be anarchist and is completely full of shit. I hope he doesn't get a plea deal...says they're asking for 3 years
    "However, the plea deal states that prosecutors and the defense will recommend three years of supervised release with no fine." I fucking hope that plea deal doesn't go through...but maybe this shows that everybody realizes he was 100% full of shit.

    He's been in since 2017 and is infantry, but over all, I'll defer to people like yourself when it comes to this stuff. I never handled anything more complicated than a claymore. I don't know that he didn't pick up anything though.

    This guy seemed to offer instructions that were somewhat comprehensive (making a detonator). Not that that seems all that hard; I'm pretty sure I could figure it out. But there are a lot of idiots out there with violent tendencies who are mostly harmless because they're too indolent to teach themselves anything. Guys like Smith have the ability to make those people more dangerous.

    Not to clutter this thread with incel observations and theories, but do you think the bigger issues from those with their rage stemming from 0 luck/skill with the ladies is because they’re not getting laid? Or because they think everyone else is getting laid and they’re the ones being left out?

    I feel like it’s the latter. Not getting laid has been a thing for a long time. It’s only been recent with social media that people are seeing others (their friends, or online randos) getting some so often while they’re not.

    I think it's both, but you're making a pretty important distinction.

    In modern society, a lonely guy can't just be lonely in private like before. They're a lonely loser in public view. Everyone and everything is connected, and there is no shelter from the contrast between themselves, other people, and the exaggerated representations of those other people's lives.

    It’s also why bullying is worse.

    you may not be forced to eat dirt like you used to but kids can’t get away from it anymore

    Yeah.

    No no way was this indicative of the Right wing at all.

    Just a crazy.

    Am I doing this correctly, @Striderxdj

    The timeline of events is tough to determine, but it says he transferred as a Private to Fort Riley, Kansas. It says he joined the Army in 2017, and by August 2019 he was already talking to an FBI Informant about the bomb stuff. So you think 6-8 months of training...so maybe he did 18-24 months in the infantry. That's more time than I figured when I first read it, but as I said no one is really reporting his military education.

    Smith is a fucking piece of shit and I'm glad they caught this prick before somebody got hurt. This article talks about the guys activites in 2018 and how he hooked up with another piece of shit; Craig Lang.

    I still seriously doubt this kid knew anything of use about explosives. I mean his idea of putting a ping pong ball in the gas tank? Fucking stupid and shit you'd see in something like the Anarchists Cookbook.
