Nothing is more eerie than to hear the talking heads and chattering classes earnestly discuss the possibility of Tea Party violence in a time when every man, woman and child (or dog!) is exactly one 911 phone call or traffic stop or encounter-of-the-law-enforcement kind away from imminent death or dismemberment at the hands of a government compliance officer.
A former FBI agent was sentenced today in California to 30 years in prison for plotting a violent home invasion of a suspected drug stash house in Orange County in what turned out to be an FBI sting.
Vo Duong Tran, 42, of New Orleans, was convicted in March 2009 of plotting the robbery with an accomplice, Yu Sung Park. Park, 36, of Wilmette, Ill., was also sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, Calif., to 30 years in prison.
Tran worked for the FBI’s Chicago Division from 1992 to April 2003.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, Tran organized and Park schemed “to commit a violent home-invasion robbery” of a home in the middle-class community of Fountain Valley, Calif. They thought the home was a base for a drug-trafficking organization and was flush with drugs and cash, prosecutors said. But the home was actually vacant.

How long is the list of left wing ideologues who have preached violence over the years when their agenda was questioned?
