Paper? Plastic? Dirty Bomb?
NEWARK, N.J. -- A 20-year-old grocery store clerk who authorities say amused himself by posting prank Internet warnings of terrorist attacks against NFL stadiums was arrested Friday on federal charges that could bring five years behind bars.The first thing they teach you at criminals school should be to keep your mouth shut. Then if you're a criminal I guess they would be too dumb to learn the easiest way to get one's self caught.
Jake J. Brahm was accused of writing that radioactive ``dirty bombs'' would be detonated this weekend at seven football stadiums. He admitted posting the warning about 40 times on various Web sites between September and Wednesday, authorities said.
The Wauwatosa man surrendered to federal authorities and was scheduled to appear in court in Milwaukee later in the day.
``These types of hoaxes scare innocent people, cost business resources and waste valuable homeland security resources. We cannot tolerate this Internet version of yelling fire in a crowded theater in the post-9/11 era,'' said U.S.
Attorney Christopher Christie in Newark, N.J., where Brahm was charged in a sealed complaint filed Thursday. One of the stadiums mentioned was Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said Brahm had bragged to friends about his actions.
