FBI: White Supremacist Intended to Harm Amtrak Passengers

Officials say a man arrested after allegedly bringing a cross-country Amtrak train to a halt in Nebraska last October had a business card of one of the largest neo-Nazi groups in the U.S. and his phone contained white-supremacist materials. Taylor M. Wilson planned to hurt the passengers aboard the halted train, said the FBI, and the bureau charged the 26-year-old Missouri man with terrorism. Wilson, who was a ticketed passenger on the train from California to Chicago, entered a restricted area, and then triggered an emergency brake in hopes of derailing the train, the FBI said. “We lunged forward in our seats and all the power went out, it went completely black,” said passenger Bobbie Garris.
