New York Man Jailed For 30 Years Over X-ray Weapon Designed To Harm Muslims

A New York man convicted of creating an X-ray device intended to harm Muslims, is to be jailed for 30 years in jail.

Judge Gary Sharpe, who presides over cases in the Northern District of New York, ordered Glendon Crawford to the lengthy prison term and said he should undergo supervision upon release for the rest of his life.

Crawford, a Navy veteran and a member of the Ku Klux Klan, intended to kill victims with radiation sickness from the remote-control device, which be believed would shoot a lethal beam of radioactivity into its human target.

The 52-year-old was found guilty of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and “distributing information about weapons of mass destruction,” according to the Associated Press.
