Thanks to the FBI   

(Some Americans think that non-Americans should not comment on what it happening in the States, but I will comment anyway).

A 36-year-old man has been killed in a confrontation with FBI agents after allegedly planning to attack a hospital in Missouri with a vehicle bomb.

Timothy Wilson was a "potentially violent extremist" with a record of expressing racial and religious hatred and anti-government sentiment, the FBI said.

He considered several targets, including a school with a large population of black students, a synagogue and a mosque, NBC News reports, quoting FBI officials.

He finally settled on a hospital to cause "maximum casualties", given "the current health crisis", the FBI said. He took "the necessary steps to acquire materials needed to build an explosive device".

Wilson, who was armed, was fatally wounded when FBI agents tried to arrest him on Tuesday in the Missouri town of Belton as he arrived to pick up what he thought was a "vehicle-borne improvised explosive device". "There was no actual bomb," the FBI added

The alleged bomb plotter was "apparently frustrated with local government action to stop the spread of coronavirus"

People have some pretty twisted thinking.  That's universal no matter what country.  

FWIW.. I don't mind non-Americans commenting.  I prefer to have an overall view rather than tunnel vision.  But, I am a New Yorker and worked in the international community for many years.  I still have a slew of former co-workers who are now friends all over the world.  I value their perspective and I believe they value mine.

Sharing perspectives allows us to understand different ways of seeing difficult issues.  For my part, I welcome people from other nations commenting on our policies.

Please trust me, don't mess with the FBI.  I train with their special agents, if I am a nice boy, they let me fire automatic weapons.  

These are FBI SWAT officers from the Chicago HQ.  They are showing off targets of hostage takers that they shot, in the head, after jumping out of a helicopter & running full tilt at their targets.
