Three men in their 20s are admitting to a plot to attack power grids in the United States as a way to start a race war.
They each pled guilty in Federal Court. The FBI says the men, who were from Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin, wanted to attack regional power substations. They had online conversations about how the loss of electricity could induce the next Great Depression. They claimed that would allow White leaders to emerge. One of them, Jonathan Frost, provided an assault rifle and suicide necklaces. They were filled with fentanyl and were to be ingested if and when they were caught. His cohort, Jackson Sawal, swallowed that during a traffic stop, derailing their plans.
