    who probably broke no law, but seems to be the person who radicalized the older brother.

    He probably turned him on to Alex Jones, too.

    Rachel Maddow is doing a great segment on Alex Jones as I type.

      I'm not so sure, if he's the one that encouraged specific violent actions.

      18 U.S.C. 371 makes it a separate Federal crime or offense for anyone to conspire or agree with someone else to do something which, if actually carried out, would amount to another Federal crime or offense. So, under this law, a 'conspiracy' is an agreement or a kind of 'partnership' in criminal purposes in which each member becomes the agent or partner of every other member.

      In order to establish a conspiracy offense it is not necessary for the Government to prove that all of the people named in the indictment were members of the scheme; or that those who were members had entered into any formal type of agreement; or that the members had planned together all of the details of the scheme or the 'overt acts' that the indictment charges would be carried out in an effort to commit the intended crime.

      The whole page at the link is useful. It has various criteria that must be met to reach burden of proof.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
