GOP Protester Has Terror Bombing Rap Sheet

An anarchist planning to disrupt the GOP convention in New York City next week has a rap sheet chock full of terrorist bombings, which catapulted him to the top of the FBI's Most Wanted List during the late 1970s. Richard Picariello, now 55, "has been talking to groups ... recruiting others into extreme measures," a high-ranking police source tells the New York Daily News.

In 1977 and 1978, Picariello was convicted for bombing an airplane at Boston's Logan Airport, as well as a Dorchester, Mass. armory and a Newburyport courthouse. His rap sheet also features a conviction for interstate transportation of explosives.

A member of the radical underground Fred Hampton Unit who was on the FBI Most Wanted List, Picariello briefly fled to Canada. When the would-be GOP convention disrupter returned, he bombed a power plant in Maine and robbed a bank before he was apprehended. He has spent nearly half of his life, 25 years, in prison.

More recently, Picariello has been active with the anti-war group ANSWER, which has been involved in various anti-Bush protests around the nation.

The notorious Boston bomber is just one of the potential domestic terrorists that the FBI and NYPD have to worry about when Republicans gather in New York next week.

Fifty of the country's leading anarchists are expected to attend and a handful of them are hard-core extremists with histories of violent and disruptive tactics, police intelligence sources tell the News.

Each of the 50 potential terrorists reportedly has a small army of up to 50 followers who are willing to be arrested during disturbances at the convention.

The GOP convention protest anarchist all-star-list includes:

• Kazi Toure, a Black Panther from Boston who was convicted in the 1980s of conspiracy to overthrow the government. His rap sheet includes arrests for bank robbery and transporting firearms. Toure was recently observed training younger militants in weapons use.

• An unnamed 20-year-old New Yorker who plans to shut down the Brooklyn Bridge. Tactics urged by the unidentified terrorist include hurling Molotov cocktails through the windows of military recruiting stations.

• Jaggi Singh, 32, a Canadian citizen, who is notorious for allegedly setting off hoax devices to detour police resources. He allegedly catapulted teddy bears soaked with gasoline at police at the Quebec G-20 protest in 2001, the News said.

Last week New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg invited "anarchists" to take advantage of discounts being offered to anti-GOP protesters on plays, restaurants and Broadway shows, as long as they agree to remain peaceful.
