Terrorism charges dropped in cell-phone case
MARIETTA, Ohio — A southeastern Ohio prosecutor has decided not to seek terrorism charges against two Michigan men arrested after they bought large numbers of cell phones.
Washington County Prosecutor James Schneider said yesterday that he didn't have enough evidence to present the felony terrorism charges to a grand jury. He said in a news release that he needs more information to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
"At this time we didn't see a link that we could prove," Schneider said in a phone interview, adding he was referring to both terrorism in general and any specific group.

They are still being charged with a misdemeanor for lying to police. I'm not sure if that involves a fine for what. It's a double edged sword of sorts, you arrest two suspicious men who begin their relationship with police by lying. Then after a few days let them go and now you have angered the already angry muslim community in America. Typical catch twenty two.

If you think these people arnt being secretely monitored by some agency, well then I dont know what to say.
Maybe You dont understand how things Really work.
"Actually, no the CIA isn't. But your limited understanding of intelligence wouldn't help you to figure out why."
Well, I would think at least the FBI would (which is who I ment to say earlier - got them mixed up for some reason). But since *my* intelligence is in good shape....maybe you could explain this stuff to me.:-)

My kid just said hi, btw.
It may all be a game of cat and mouse now that I think about it. Let them lead the law to their source so they can catch the bigger fish.
I didn't say they weren't being monitored by some agency. And for at least some period of time, I hope they are to verify that they story pans outs.
And yes, it would be the FBI. The FBI does domestic intelligence.
"The FBI does domestic intelligence."
Yes, I realize that considering it stands for:
I had just typed my response in too quick the other day in a tired state and wasn't functioning on all cylinders there for a second.
