GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) — Three Kansas men were arrested for planning to bomb a southwest Kansas mosque and apartment building.
The residents at the targeted apartment complex are scared, some for the first time since coming to America.
According to CNN, throughout the investigation, FBI agents say the suspects referred to Somalis and Muslims as cockroaches and made violent threats against them. During one conversation, agents say Patrick Stein said, “Make sure if you start using your bow on them cockroaches, make sure you dip them in pig’s blood before you shoot them”.
He’s also quoted in the affidavit as saying “the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim.”
Documents show officers seized nearly a metric ton of ammunition in Allen’s home. Agents say the suspects planned for the attack to happen the day after election day.
But Saturday, the Somali refugees who live there came together to find comfort in their community and their faith.
“I believe America is safe, but now I’m feeling unsafe with what I hear,” said Abdirsaq Hassan, a resident of the apartment complex. “It’s not something good.”
Many of the residents escaped one threat of violence in their home countries only to find another.
“I’m here, United States, like 15 years now,” said Abdul Kadir Mohamed, another resident. “I never meet any problem, except today when I had this information, and it makes me shocked and scared, really.”
