A sanctuary city is a great place to operate if you’re an Islamic, and Everitt Aaron Jameson had a plan: He would travel to a remote campground in the mountains, where he would build explosives out of PVC pipe, gunpowder and nails.
He said he would store the bombs in his Modesto home, federal officials alleged, before using them in an attack on San Francisco’s Pier 39 that would involve funneling people into an area and shooting them with an assault rifle.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Jameson (who is clearly an psycho, and an idiot) laid out his plot during a December meeting with an undercover FBI employee he believed worked for Islamic State’s top leader.
Christmas Day, Jameson told the agent, would be the perfect day to carry out the attack.
He told the agent he needed timers and remote detonators, and said he didn’t need an escape plan because he was “ready to die.”
A federal grand jury Thursday indicted the 26-year-old man on terror charges, accusing him of one count each of attempting to provide material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization and distributing information relating to destructive devices.
