October 29, 2008, Tennessee: Two white supremacists remain detained in Tennessee according to an unsealed affidavit filed in a Jackson, Tennessee federal court. The affidavit filed, by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), reveals a plan to kill Democratic presidential candidate Obama and to continue on with the killing and beheading of children in a predominately black school. The filing further reveals the arrests of Paul Schlesselman, 18, of West Helena, AK, and Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, TN may have saved some 100 Americans from a violent attack.
Federal officials are claiming both men have admittedly strong Aryan and “skinhead” belief systems. The “white power” arrestees planned to kill 88 people and behead 14 African-Americans. The numbers 88 and 14 have specific meaning to the Aryan belief system according to federal officials. The eighth letter of the alphabet is “H” and the number 88 is short for “Heil Hitler”. The white supremacist movement has a 14-word prayer, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” These two pieces of fact represent the significance of the numbers “88” and “14” in the killing spree plot.
Apparently, the two men met through the Internet and have been charged with threatening a presidential candidate, illegally possessing a sawed-off shotgun and conspiracy to rob a gun dealer. A hearing has been scheduled in Memphis this Thursday to determine further detainment of both assailants.
Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has been assigned Secret Service protection since May 2007. This is the earliest assignment of a Secret Service detail a presidential candidate has ever received in American history. The early detail was decided because Obama is the first black presidential nominee from a major political party in the United States. The ATF and Secret Service remain investing whether these two men had the capability of carrying out such a violent attack against American citizens. Federal officials are continuing there investigation and maintain no threat against a presidential candidate and U.S. citizens is taken lightly.
