I wonder why this guy got 30 years for building or attempting to build a death ray. Something isn't right with this story. Very very heavy sentence, did he build the thing? Or did he get nailed so hard becasue of what he said?

Picture of the death ray.


Odd story, Glen Crawford had plans to make a death ray machine and his targets are Muslims and POTUS. He will be cooling his heels in prison for 30 years.


MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – He concocted a plan to build a death ray machine, calling it Hiroshima on a light switch. His target was apparently Muslims and President Barack Obama, according to federal officials.

This week, the New York man and reputed Klansman and Muslim extremist was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

And one of the key witnesses in the trial of Glendon Crawford is from Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Crawford was busted with the help of Pete Doughtie a publisher of what I think is a newspaper, the story isn't clear. But Doughtie helped the FBI nail Crawford who was looking for investors to cover the cost of building the death ray.


Crawford met with Doughtie at the Hardee’s on Memorial Boulevard in Murfreesboro about his death ray machine, which he pitched as capable of killing from a distance.

Doughtie believes he was contacted because of his extensive coverage of the way Rutherford County officials approved construction of the controversial Murfreesboro mosque.

Doughtie said after the meeting was over, Crawford asked if he knew anyone who could back him financially so he could continue constructing the deadly radiation-spewing machine.

Word is he's a white supremacist who wanted to kill Muslims. So let's all say it so that we can combat it, white conservative Christian fundamentalist extremism!

Ah there, now that we aren't being PC about this we can finally end racism and terrorism all in one stroke!

Source says the guy is a Klansman AND Muslim extremist?

How can you be both of those?

Also, if this machine was "radiation spewing", where was the radiation coming from? The story is kinda vague.

Almost sounds like the guy may have invented some kind of overunity device and as usual the government is seizing it and jailing him with this "death ray" malarky as cover.

Clearly he's not a Muslim extremist, it should have said Christian extremist. The source has screwed up.

Seriously? Do you want him to be a Muslim? A self proclaimed KKK white supremacist Muslim who wanted to kill Muslims? Does any of that make sense to you?

If a Muslim doesn't follow a certain sect of the religion what he said makes perfect sense.

No I don't have a dog in this race, take a breath.

It's all in the marketing.

Death Ray is just asking for unwanted attention.

Should have called it a unicorn flatulence generator or something.

No and no. The simplest answer is usually the right answer and in this case it's that your source completely screwed up. Wanna fact check it? No? Maybe? Then look at any other source and compare the two.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- A 52-year-old industrial mechanic who was the first person in the U.S. convicted of trying to produce a weapon of mass destruction under a 2004 law intended to stop terrorists from using radiation-dispersing “dirty bombs” was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release.

Glendon Scott Crawford, of Galway in upstate New York, planned to kill Muslims because of their religion as well as other people whose political and social beliefs he disagreed with, U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian said.

“This is a classic case of domestic terrorism,” Hartunian said after Crawford’s sentencing by U.S. District Judge Gary L. Sharpe.

Investigators began tracking Crawford in 2012 after he approached two local Jewish groups with his idea for how they could defeat their enemies using a mobile X-ray weapon. Prosecutors said Crawford also sought support for the device in 2013 from a Ku Klux Klan grand wizard in North Carolina who was an FBI informant.

Co-defendant Eric Feight, of Hudson, pleaded guilty in 2014 to providing material support to terrorists. He admitted building a remote control for the X-ray device. Feight, a control systems engineer, was sentenced to eight years in prison a year ago.

Crawford, who worked with Feight at General Electric in Schenectady, was convicted in August by a jury that rejected his lawyer’s argument that he was entrapped by the FBI.

Given an opportunity in court Monday to argue for a more lenient sentence, Crawford delivered a complicated statement about physics, his interpretation of legal statutes and criticism of his defense lawyer. He insisted he never intended personally to use the device he was making, but only to provide “technical assistance” for others to use it.

“I feared for my nation’s and my children’s nation’s future,” Crawford said, launching into a criticism of U.S. immigration policy regarding Muslims before the judge cut him off.

“This conduct is bizarre,” Sharpe said. “You are bizarre.”


lol wtf

Read a few other sources, 2 same story, the other no mention of the KKK and Muslim in the same sentence. This guy was a nut. He may need some mental health help, he won't get that in prison.

They charged him with making a weapon of mass destruction. Did the thing work? Could you get thirty years for a fake death ray?
