Ferguson Protesters Admit Plot to Bomb Police Station, Kill Officials

June 02, 2015  | 

Two men admitted in federal court in St Louis Tuesday that they plotted to blow up a police station, vehicles, and perhaps other targets, including the St. Louis County prosecutor and Ferguson police chief. 

Olajuwon Ali Davis, 23, and Brandon Orlando Baldwin, 24, each pleaded guilty to four explosives and gun charges that will carry seven-year prison terms when they are sentenced Aug. 31, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The pair met in August in Ferguson, during the protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18, by then-Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. They started talking about buying guns and organizing protesters to "be like an army" and fight back against police, their plea agreement says.

Both were Muslims, a fact which the above article for some reason (??) chose to hide. Their Muslim aspect and the fact that they openly considered the planned terrorist attack as "Jihad" is widely-discussed. Why did the above article ignore it?
