The FBI filed terrorist-related charges on Friday against a former Marine sharpshooter from Modesto who they say planned a Christmas week attack on Pier 39.
According to an affidavit written by FBI Special Agent Christopher McKinney, Everitt Aaron Jameson, 26, picked the heavily populated tourist spot of Pier 39 for a possible attack because he said he knew he could use explosives, a tow truck and guns to inflict a lot of damage.
…On Wednesday, FBI agents felt they had enough evidence to obtain a search warrant at Jameson’s home. They found a a couple of .45-caliber magazines, a Rugers model M77 and a Winchester 22. caliber rifle, ammunitions and some fireworks.
They also found a handwritten letter, that appeared to be his will. It was signed by Abdallah Abu Everitt Ibn Gordon Al-Amriki and was dated Dec. 16. It was written in the past tense and said that “you all have brought this upon yourselves.” He named Donald Trump and the Jews as the reasons for this “godless society,” and he explained the attack was the reason “we have penetrated and infiltrated your disgusting country.”
Sarah Jameson said that the family had been OK with her nephew converting to Islam, although they had joked with him about “blowing things up.”
But he would always answer, “We’re the good ones,” she said.
