This is very interesting. I guess it was supposed to work like the Vending Machine Hacking from the old Anarchist hand book. lol Does anyone remember those text files that were passed around in the early days of the web. I used to have a copy pre 9/11 days before having material like that got you on the terrorist list.

I think the FBI should investigate Obama...

After all, someone dressed as Obama planning to rob banks for the people sure sounds likes him.

Ah but no... Obama is stealing FROM the people to give TO the banks... Ah yes sorry my mistake.

FBI was undercover; I keep reading more and more about undercover agents. How did the FBI get involved, and at what point?

It sucks to see a 19 year old kids life get thrown away due to a stupid decision.

Ok well we just had a similar incident in Australia and the guy was wearing a burka.

And there was public outcry and everyone wanted the burka banned. Now this guy is pretending to be Obama.

So we are gonna ban wigs. Come on, it's a logical response. We also have to ban any wearable likeness of the president.

Interesting

"pretending I'm the kid"

Sorry All I was doing was going to an ATM,
Yes I said I was the Prez I was going to a party

What proof do you have that I was "planning this"

--

Will they try to charge him with 300,000 or just a plan

--

As said before when did the FBI start watching him
way before he went to Huston, so was he getting his info from
a friend? a relative? .... the inter..net..? or was he set up?

Now it makes me wonder what his parents did and what they are into to
could they be connected some how?

--

Some reason this reminds me of rubbing a penny to the top of Lincolns head and using it for a dime in a vending machine or a parking meter.

Or the ol days of "sliding tray" dollar changers, copying the dollar on a copy machine and putting it in for 4 quarters, untill they changed the machine a few months later. ( only worked on the "tray" sliding change machines, which they don't use anymore )
