*The white supremacist skinhead convicted in a bizarre plot to culminate a nationwide killing spree of African Americans with the assassination of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Authorities charged that Paul Schlesselman and an accomplice had hatched a plot to kill 88 African American, behead 14 other Blacks and conclude with the assassination of Obama.
The numbers 88 and 14 are said to have some special significance in the growing white supremacist movement. The 19-year-old Schlesselman was from West Helena, Arkansas.
He pleaded guilty this past January. His accomplice, Daniel Cowatt of Bells, Tennessee, has also pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing. (source: Taylor Media Services – www.BlackNewsJournal.net)
