AllHipHop has learned that agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms(ATF) have broken up a Tennessee plot to assassinate Presidential hopeful Barack Obama and maim or murder dozens of African-Americans in the Tennessee area.
The plot, allegedly masterminded by two area skinheads, involved plans to rob a local gun store and target a majority-Black high school in Nashville, according to federal agents.
The Associated Press reports that Jim Cavanough, special agent and head of the Nashville ATF field office, said that the two skinheads planned to shoot 88 African-Americans and decapacitate 14 others; the numbers having some significance in white supremacist ideology.
Once their local carnage was complete, the two cohorts planned to take their mayhem national, culminating in the eventual assassination of Barack Obama.
According to Cavanaugh,"they said that would be their last, final act-that they would attempt to kill Senator Obama. They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but they would get killed trying."
