Charges are spurious. National Lawyers Guild (NLG) attorneys denounced them. Sarah Gelsomino "delore(d them) in the strongest degree." No evidence whatever proves them.

NLG's Michael Deutsch called them "propaganda to create a climate of fear and to create this public perception that protesters are violent."

The Times said defendants were targeted in early May. They and others were arrested "when police officers and FBI agents obtained a no-knock search warrant" to raid a South Side apartment.

NLG lawyers said police "broke down doors with guns drawn and searched residences without a warrant or consent."

According to The Times:

"The three defendants....assembled four Molotov cocktails from empty beer bottles, with cut bandannas as fuses."

They "were to be used in attacks against police stations, which would divert attention from other attacks around the city."

Official police and prosecutor accounts were cited. They're baseless without credibility. Charges are fabricated with no corroborating evidence. The pattern repeats constantly. As a result, many hundreds rot unjustly in America's gulag.

Yet The Times said "defendants also (planned) to buy several assault rifles and build a pipe bombs at the time of their arrests."
