VT man tries to kill Muslim family to "protect the US"
Kyle A. Thurber, 32, was arrested on Friday outside the Brattleboro business owned by the family, which lives in Dummerston. Police say he had a loaded rifle when he was taken into custody.
Wow - just in the nick of time.
Thurber entered his plea in Vermont District Court on Monday to two felony counts of aggravated stalking with a deadly weapon. He was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation at the Vermont State Hospital.
Authorities say Thurber apparently had been living out of his car recently.
Brattleboro police say in an affidavit that Thurber stalked the family over three days. The family moved to a seasonal home in New Hampshire because they feared for their safety.
Police say Thurber told officers that he believed the family members were terrorists because they spoke Arabic to each other. He allegedly suspected they were plotting an explosion in the north end of Brattleboro and perhaps the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant in Vernon.
“Thurber stated that he thought the (family) should no longer be able to breathe,” Brattleboro Police Officer Mark Carignan wrote in his affidavit. “He said that they needed to be killed to protect the United States.”
The first thing on every freedom loving American's agenda should be wresting control of OUR MEDIA from monied interests - they are DESTROYING OUR LIVES.
