Former WA State Democrats deputy field organizer among 2 charged in terror attack, detailed on 'anarchist website'

Samantha Frances Brooks and Ellen Brennan Reiche


"SEATTLE, WA – Federal charges have been brought against two individuals for allegedly trying to compromise train tracks near Bellingham in Whatcom County by placing “shunts” onto the tracks. 

These “shunts” are said to have the capacity to disrupt “the low level electrical current on the tracks and can disable various safety features,” which can result in a domino effect up to even derailments. "




"“Since January there have been 41 incidents of shunts placed on the BNSF tracks in Whatcom and Skagit counties—causing crossing guards to malfunction, interfering with automatic braking systems, and, in one case, causing the near-derailment of tanks of hazardous chemicals.”

“The shunt is comprised of wire and magnets that are stretched between the tracks, disrupting the systems that indicate a train is on the tracks.”"

"According to a September 9th press release from the Justice Department, Reiche was found guilty of violence against a railroad carrier after having gone to trial.

Her co-defendant, Brooks, pleaded guilty to interference with a railroad signaling system on July 9th. Both of them are facing 20 years in federal prison."

Give 'em the full 20.  Lots of tattooed Bubbettes will be very glad to meet them.  By the time they get out, they will be able to do lingual pushups.

Looks like they could do them now. Better, put them in a men’s prison and starve them of their usual clam diet.
