MLK Day Bombing Suspect Arrested in Terrorism Investigation

March 9, 2011

A man with a Colville, WA address has been arrested in connection with the attempted bombing along the parade route of the Martin Luther King Day Peace March in Spokane, WA.

The 36 year old ex-soldier, Kevin William Harpham, was taken into custody this morning as he crossed the Colville River.

The arrest was carried out by dozens of F.B.I. officers between Addy, WA and Colville,  just a few miles from my home! Damn, wish they had alerted me. I could have added live-action  video to this post.

It has been confirmed that Harpham was a member of the National Alliance in 2004, one of the largest white supremist organizations in the U.S.

The bomb was fashioned in a way that, if it had been detonated, could have caused mulitple casualties. Alert city workers discovered the backpack sitting on a bench along the parade route prior to the parade and a potential tragedy was averted.

If convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, Harpman could face life imprisonment.

    Wow, racism lives in my community.

    The suspect’s facebook page lists his likes as: :” Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Fox News, and Being Conservati­ve among other things.”
