|Black Bloc "F the Police" march, May 15, Chicago's South Side|
From NBC 5 Chicago:
A day after their lawyers complained that they were being "kept in isolation" at Cook County Jail, two of the three suspects accused in a bomb plot associated with last weekend's NATO conference have asked not to be put in the jail’s general population, and to instead be incarcerated in the protective custody unit.Take the masks off of these guys and remove them from a 100 person Black Black mob--then they aren't so tough.
The two suspects who made the request, Brent Betterly and Jared Chase, were arrested with fellow self-proclaimed anarchist Brian Church on Wednesday May 16 after police found what they said was Molotov cocktails and instructions for making pipe bombs in their apartment during a raid.
According to prosecutors the three planned on throwing the Molotov cocktails into a police station. They were charged with conspiracy to commit terrorism, possession of an explosive or incendiary device and providing material support.
Betterly and Chase made the request to remain in the protective custody unit Wednesday, a full week after their arrest. Church remains under observation at Cermak Hospital.
Far-left blogs are already calling the NATO 3 political prisoners.
