Twenty-four-year-old Luke J. Helder of Pine Island, Minn., was arrested while driving his car along a road in Nevada. The FBI quickly determined the terrorist’s identity and the make of his vehicle, a Honda Accord. Helder was wanted all over the country, and the information about his whereabouts was received from a driver who spotted his car in Nevada. FBI agents dialed Helder’s cell phone number and asked him to surrender. He agreed, but asked for decent treatment.
There is not much known about the terrorist, who was kept America’s Midwest in awe for several days. As a matter of fact, the entire information about this guy could be expressed in one phrase: “a good boy from a good family.” Luke J. Helder is a student, he studied industrial design at Wisconsin university. Now, he is indicted for deliberate destruction of private property and for the use of explosive devices with a goal of committing violent crimes. Helder is likely to spend entire life in prison and pay a fine of $250 thousand. Helder’s father said, "I really want you to know that Luke is not a dangerous person. I think he's just trying to make a statement about the way our government is run. I think Luke wants people to listen to his ideas.” It is not clear from this statement why placed bombs in the mail to get attention when there are tons of other, less harmless ways to do it. Well, Helder will have an opportunity to think about those ways in the future. He will have a lot of time to think.
