He Was Busted at Train's Controls. Now, Terror Charges

The FBI is accusing a 26-year-old St. Charles man, with links to a white supremacist group, of a terror attack on an Amtrak train in rural Nebraska last October.

Last October, a train conductor traveling through Furnas County, Nebraska noticed the train braking, and found Wilson "playing with the controls" in the engineer room.

The conductor, and others, subdued Wilson, then held him and waited for deputies from Furnas and Harlan counties to arrive in Oxford, 23 miles southwest of Holdrege, where the eastbound California Zephyr with about 175 people aboard stopped. He was carrying a loaded.38-caliber handgun in his waistband and a speed loader in his pocket.

Taylor Michael Wilson was charged n U.S. District Court in Lincoln, Neb. with terrorism attacks and other violence against railroad carriers and mass transportation systems, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported. Days after, the Federal Bureau of Investigation searched his home and found a hidden stash of 15 firearms, ammunition and accessories, as well as "white supremacy documents and paperwork".

Roy Moore accuser loses everything in house fire under investigation for arson
She alleges that at the age of 28 Moore groped her and made comments about her young daughters' physical appearance. Police say they have identified a suspect who is known in the area for being drunk and misbehaved.

"Agents interviewed an acquaintance of Wilson's who told them that been acting strangely since the summer, and had joined an "'alt-right' neo-Nazi group that he found while researching white supremacy forums online".

While he's had a history of drug use and mental problems, Wilson was deemed competent and released on bail after being hit with criminal mischief and weapons possession charges, but in recently-unsealed court documents, it was said that Wilson was hit with the terrorism charges at a hearing on December 28 after a federal investigation was completed. He later was found competent to proceed, according to court records. The FBI believes he traveled with this group to the Charlottesville rally. Wilson was also said to have images tied to white supremacy and how-to guides on killing people on his phone.

In addition, an informant told the Federal Bureau of Investigation told authorities he had expressed "an interest in killing black people".
