From raiding the home of MI GOP Gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley in front of his wife and six small children on 4 misdemeanor charges related to standing outside of the Capitol on Jan 6 to busting down the door of the petite Frontline Doctor Simone Gold with a battering ram for the crime of standing inside the Capitol on Jan 6th, the FBI has been intimidating Trump supporters since 2016. It all started when FBI agents under the authority of James Comey busted into the home of Trump campaign consultant Paul Manafort and held his elderly wife at gunpoint as she stood in her nightgown while neighbors peered out of their windows at the “bad Trump supporters.”
Almost immediately after Trump’s inauguration, the FBI’s intimidation game against his supporters and inner circle has been strong. It continues today with the FBI acting as jack-booted thugs for the January 6 Witch Hunt Committee. Is the FBI putting too much effort into intimidating and threatening Trump supporters and possibly dropping the ball on real criminals?
Was the FBI too busy rounding up Trump supporters who stood outside of the US Capitol on Jan. 6 to notice the warning signs of 22-yr-old Robert “Bobby” Crimo, a clearly disturbed individual who shot into a crowd of innocent citizens yesterday in Highland Park, IL, during a Fourth of July parade, killing 7 and injuring dozens of others? The signs were definitely there…
According to new reports, the 22-yr-old Crimo has been in trouble with the law before and even threatened to kill his entire family as recently as September 2019.
Daily Mail reports – Police at first said that Crimo was not known to them but on Tuesday, they revealed he was interviewed twice by authorities in 2019.
The first was in April 2019, a week after he threatened to kill himself. The second was in September 2019, after he threatened to “kill everyone’ in his family.
Police recovered 16 knives, a dagger, and a sword from his home, but he was not arrested.
Instead, he was able to turn 21 and buy two assault rifles in Illinois, along with three other types of gun. It remains unclear why the two previous incidents were not flagged when he legally purchased the weapons.
Chris Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office disclosed the prior incidents at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
In the April 2019 incident, ‘an individual contacted the Highland Park department a week after learning of his attempted suicide. It was a delayed report.
‘They responded to the residence, spoke to him, and his parents, and the matter was being handled with the mental health profession. There was no law enforcement action to be taken.
‘In September 2019, a family remember reported that he said he was going to “kill everyone” and that he had a collection of knives. They responded and took 16 knives and a dagger from his home.
‘There was no probable cause to arrest and no complaints assigned by the victims. They did notify the Illinois State Police.’
The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office charged 22-year-old Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III with seven counts of first-degree murder on Tuesday for the Fourth of July parade shooting that left seven people dead and about two dozen others wounded, authorities announced during a press conference.
Crimo is also accused of ‘sizing up’ the Central Avenue Synagogue in Highland Park, Illinois, according to the Times of Israel.
Rabbi Yosef Schanowitz is quoted by the website as saying that he recognized the suspect from an incident that occurred in April 2022. The rabbi said: ‘During the last Passover holiday, that person entered the Chabad synagogue. We have an armed security guard sitting in front… I approached him and sternly asked him to leave as I noticed he was not a member of our community.’
In a separate interview with Forward.com, the congregation’s head of security Martin Blumenthal said of Crimo: ‘He was definitely sizing up the synagogue.’
Blumenthal said that Crimo was wearing all black clothes and black gloves ‘in the goth style.’ The head of security said that he checked Crimo’s backpack for weapons but didn’t find any.
He added: ‘He said his name was Bobby and he lived in the neighborhood. I watched him the whole time.’ Blumenthal added that Crimo then left on his bike.
