    37 months for brother of man who 'exploded' at OU game By Sara Burnett, Rocky Mountain News October 5, 2007 A Colorado Springs man whose brother blew himself up outside an Oklahoma football game in 2005 was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison today for threatening an FBI agent. U.S. District Judge Robert E. Blackburn called Thomas C. Hinrichs, who had an AK-47 assault rifle and other paramilitary gear in his car when he was arrested, "a time bomb for our community." He also said Hinrichs should have a full mental evaluation and treatment while in prison and be...

    Here is another example of why our Universities are so antithetical to American values that they are dangerous to society... Apparently, the University of Oklahoma is putting up a memorial to a fool who blew himself up when a homemade bomb he assembled went off while he held it as he attended a football game in the University stadium. Fortunately, he only killed himself and not anyone around him. To this kid we should be saying good riddance and he should be quickly forgotten. But here is the U of O mourning this idiot's death as if he were some...

    Sudden Jihad Syndrome Monday, February 26, 2007 Sudden Jihad Syndrome Evidently this mental/emotional malady is on the rise: Sudden Jihad Syndrome It looks like the Muslim teen who opened fire on shoppers in a Salt Lake City mall is yet another case of “sudden jihad syndrome,” a condition in which normal-appearing American Muslims abruptly turn violent. Taken together, this and other cases add up to an invisible jihad inside America. But don’t tell that to the FBI. The politically correct bureau does everything it can to avoid recognizing the obvious Islamic factor in these heinous crimes. Sulejman Talovic, an...

    DENVER -- The brother of a University of Oklahoma student who blew himself up outside the OU football stadium last year has been charged with threatening a second FBI agent. The additional charge against Thomas Carlisle "Tom" Hinrichs of Colorado Springs is contained in an indictment that was made public Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Denver. Hinrichs originally was charged Nov. 21 with threatening during Nov. 15-16 interrogations to assault or murder an FBI agent identified only as "Todd" in Colorado Springs. The new charge alleges that Hinrichs threatened in an Oct. 12 telephone call to "bury" William Burruel,...

    OU death not linked to terrorism By Nolan Clay The FBI concluded a University of Oklahoma student who blew himself up last year on campus was not a terrorist, the top agent in Oklahoma says. "We have no evidence he had a social or political agenda that he was trying to bring attention to," said Salvador Hernandez, the FBI's special agent in charge in Oklahoma. "We don't consider this terrorism the way we define it," he said. "There would have to be a cause." Joel "Joe" Henry Hinrichs III, an engineering student, died Oct. 1 when his bomb went off...

    (3/10/06) - With college basketball championships underway around the country, the FBI has warned stadium operators of a possible suicide bomb attack at sporting events. In a directive issued today, obtained by ABC News, the FBI says a posting on an extremist message board "advocated suicide attacks against sporting events as a cost-effective means of killing thousands of Americans." The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security say they cannot confirm the credibility of the threat or whether the message is affiliated with al Qaeda. The FBI says the Internet posting said the suicide attacks would be justified because the...

    NORMAN, Okla. -- A University of Oklahoma student who blew himself up outside a packed Gaylord Family/Oklahoma Memorial Stadium probably didn't commit suicide, a Norman police bomb expert said. "I believe he accidentally blew himself up," Sgt. George Mauldin said Tuesday of Joel Henry Hinrichs III, a 21-year-old engineering student who died in the explosion Oct. 1. When asked if he believed Hinrichs meant to enter the stadium with the explosives, Mauldin said, "I don't believe he intended for an explosion to occur at that spot (on a nearby park bench)." Hinrichs, of Colorado Springs, Colo., had two to three...

    Norman, Oklahoma (population 100,923), is as American heartland as it gets. So on October 1, 2005, when Joel Hinrichs III, a 21-year-old Colorado Springs, Colorado engineering student at the University of Oklahoma strapped explosives to his body and blew himself up outside the college stadium where 84,000 fans were watching a Saturday-night football game, thus earning the town the distinction as home to America's first suicide bomber, I was, well, curious. Within 24 hours of the event, three players in the unfolding story issued statements aimed at quashing rumors that the bombing was terrorist related. University President David Boren, in...

    On Nov. 18, U.S. Magistrate Judge Valerie K. Couch released previously sealed records related to the FBI/Joint Terrorism Task Force search of Oklahoma University bomber Joel Hinrichs' apartment, his e-mail account and nine OU computers. I obtained the nearly 350 pages of unsealed court documents just before Thanksgiving last week and reviewed them over the weekend (a big thank you to Cheryl in Judge Couch's office and TaraLeigh Teupker of Business Courier Service of Oklahoma City for their prompt responses and assistance). It would have been nice if an MSM outlet with boundless time, resources, and manpower--say, CBS News--had made...

    NORMAN, Okla. -- Hundreds of students are now under investigation after fake IDs are found on the University of Oklahoma campus. Police said the latest rash of fake IDs have come from Dallas and that an OU fraternity member is selling the bogus Texas driver's licenses for about $100 each. Experts say these IDs are so close to the real thing that they're virtually undetectable. "The ones coming out of Texas are really good, and they're getting better," said O'Connell's bartender Todd Emerson. Emerson has confiscated dozens of fake IDs at the Norman pub. "Most of these IDs are pretty...

    OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma - Has terrorism returned to the Oklahoma City area? That is what folks in Norman have been asking, ever since a 21-year-old student at the University of Oklahoma killed himself in what some are calling an attempted homicide bombing. On Saturday, October 1, engineering major Joel Hinrichs detonated a homemade bomb near Memorial Stadium, where 84,000 fans were watching the hometown Sooners take on Kansas State. That was just a hundred yards from a newly replaced bench -- it was there, just before halftime, that a powerful explosion ripped through the entire area, taking Hinrichs with it....
