Klansman only pretending to build pipe bombs
Washington Observer-Reporter |
"Ku Klux Klan Imperial Wizard David Wayne Hull took the stand in his own defense Thursday, claiming his talk of pipe bombs, explosives and other illegal weapons was nothing more than an elaborate game meant to toy with federal investigators... Hull appeared shaken on the stand, a combination of nervousness and eagerness to explain to the jury his beliefs and his attempts fool with the FBI's investigation of white supremacist groups like Hull's White Knights of the KKK... Federal public defender W. Penn Hackney asked Hull why he would execute such an involved charade for [cooperating witness John Carmelo]. 'I was getting a free cell phone, unlimited minutes,' he told jurors, adding that the FBI provided the phone. 'That's your tax money at work.'"
