Let's take a look at this news.....
Both of the arrested hail from the affluent Forest Hill area of Toronto
Forest Hill is an affluent neighbourhood in central Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Along with Rosedale, and The Bridle Path, it is one of Toronto’s three wealthiest neighbourhoods.The first arrest came yesterday, a male, who was charged with...... wait for it.....
he had "gathered the makings for volatile explosives".
Now, on to the arrest today of his spouse - Canada police make 2nd explosives arrest before G20
They said the 37-year-old woman was arrested on Wednesday and charged with possession of an explosive device and possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes.
That explosive is TATP. Or triacetone triperoxide. What is triacetone triperoxide?
Off the top of my head, I would say sounds like nail polish remover and peroxide.
Hang on, though while I gather info....
Flashback, Richard Reid the shoe bomber.
Ok, here we go
"hydrogen peroxide, acetone, and sulfuric acid"
The hydrogen peroxide has to be sufficiently concentrated for this to even come close to working. Acetone, nail polish remover or paint thinners. Sulfuric acid -drain cleaners.
Or? "A little hair dye, drain cleaner, and paint thinner"
So this man had common household cleaners and solvents, "gathered".
I will bet alot of people have "gathered" these ingredients.
Let's move on to another charge against this man?
Intimidating “justice system participants”
Intimidating justice sytem participants? What is this about?
Mr. Sonne talking animatedly, and with the expertise of someone who knew his way around security systems, about his plans to listen in on security force’s radio chatter and broadcast it on Twitter.
The Toronto police started to encrypt their radio system this year, to make it more difficult for someone to listen in.Had Mr Sonne found away to get around the encryption. Or is this arrest much ado about nothing? A total show? A way to justify the 1.2 billion dollar security expenditure?
From another article-
Sonne told a May meeting of activists and professors that he planned to monitor police chatter about the G-20 summit and post it on Twitter. He also said he would buy items online to attract police attention.
And, this is interesting
Sonne made two brief court appearances Wednesday. Sonne winked at the media as he left the courtroom in custody.This should come as no surprise, there is a publication ban.
What should be surprising is that the publication ban was requested by Sonne's lawyer!
An automatic publication ban was placed on his case after his lawyer requested it.
If this man and his wife were being falsely accused or wrongly persecuted by law enforcement, how would a publication ban requested by his lawyer, serve the interests of his client. Unless things are not as they seem?
