Chicago police accused of planting evidence in ‚Molotov cocktail‘ plot 19 May 2012 Lawyers for three protesters arrested on terrorist-related charges ahead of the Nato summit have accused police of entrapping them and encouraging an alleged bomb-making effort. The three were arrested on Wednesday night when members of the Chicago police department battered their way into an apartment in the Bridgeport area of the city. According to court documents released on Saturday, the three men considered targeting Barack Obama’s re-election headquarters and the home of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. The Chicago police department said the men, described as self-proclaimed anarchists and members of the „Black Bloc“ movement, were arrested on Wednesday and charged on Friday with conspiracy to commit terrorism, providing material support for terrorism and possession of an explosive incendiary device.
