Winter told The Wenatchee World in a July 23 interview that he broke into the courthouse and doused hundreds of court files with gasoline. But Winter, who lost his land near Cameron Lake to back taxes in January, denied he planned to ignite the documents. He said he wanted to send a message to county officials, who he believes are corrupt. "My defense is going to be that I was exercising my Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, which means I can do what I have to get corrupt people out of government," Winter told the newspaper.

I fail to see how this could be called terrorism. Speaks poorly of the prosecutor's office if you ask me.

everything is terrorism now, you see, it's part of the "war on terrorism" kind of like the war in 1984

[b]My defense is going to be that I was exercising my Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, which means I can do what I have to get corrupt people out of government," Winter told the newspaper. Winter moved to Washington from Nevada in 1999. Winter has been charged with attempted malicious explosion, first-degree burglary and first-degree malicious mischief, which carry a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $50,000 fine. Superior Court Judge Pro Tem Chris Culp said he was entering an innocent plea on behalf of Winter to preserve his rights under the U.S. and state constitutions. "I protest your entering a plea for me," said Winter, who represented himself. "I just want that on the record." Winter remained shackled around his waist and feet, and handcuffed throughout the hearing. He claimed criminal charges against him should be "discharged" because Superior Court Judge Jack Burchard did not state the jurisdiction and venue of the court in a preliminary hearing last week.[/b] Either they didnt report everything or this guys is nuts. How is arson protected under the 2nd.
