Glendon Crawford

2 men charged with building a death ray machine

In 2013 two men were arrested in New York because they were building a death ray machine:

  1. Glendon Crawford, 49, of Galway, Saratoga County, married and father of 3 children.
  2. Eric Feight, 54, of Hudson, Columbia County, married.

This case is interesting because it shows that there are perps who conspire to do harm in a deniable way. Most people who make such a device don’t tell the Embassy of Israel so they never get caught. But, you may bet that there are many perps operating such devices against targets.

It is also possible that Glendon Crawford was working with the government to create a very bad image of the KKK. Just look at the facts: he worked with FBI agents on a device and now it looks bad for the KKK and racists in general. Nobody confirmed that he’s a KKK member so it looks much like a false flag.

The device would fit in a van and be triggered by remote control. It would emit radioactive waves. The victims would die within days from radiation poisoning. They were planning to use it against Muslims. He believed that Muslims are sub-humans who deserve to die. He saw a connection between genes and religious belief.

On August 20, 2015 Crawford was convicted of use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to build and use a radiological dispersal device. He was also convicted of distributing information with respect to a weapon of mass destruction.

On December 19, 2016 Crawford was sentenced to 30 years in prison. His lawyer announced that he would appeal.
