I’m shocked to read that a post-9/11 anti-terror law was actually used to convict a terrorist, White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan leader David Wayne Hull (News of the Wierd fans take note of that middle name).
The leader of a Ku Klux Klan splinter group was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday in what prosecutors said was the nation’s first conviction under a new anti-terror law.
David Wayne Hull, 42, was convicted of teaching a government informant posing as an anti-abortion activist how to use a pipe bomb at a November 2002 white supremacist gathering on Hull’s property south of Pittsburgh.
Federal prosecutors said Hull also gave the informant parts to make a bomb.
The 2002 anti-terror statute bans instructing others how to use pipe bombs or other dangerous weapons to commit a crime. It carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence.
