On Tuesday, March 28, according to a press release from the Department of Justice (DOJ), a suspect was arrested in the firebombing of pro-life Wisconsin Family Action in Madison, WI. The firebombing on May 8 was the first of a nationwide pro-abortion crimewave. 29-year-old Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury was arrested at Boston Logan International Airport after purchasing a one-way ticket to Guatemala after being identified by DNA evidence left at the scene 325 days ago. According to a LinkedIn profile with the same name, Roychowdhury is a Ph.D. bio-engineer, trained at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. This is the second arrest in as many weeks in a slew of pro-abortion domestic terror attacks perpetrated by the Maoist Antifa front group, Jane’s Revenge. There have been no convictions for any of the attacks nationwide.
Regarding the two recent arrests in Buffalo and Madison, Rev. Jim Harden, CEO of firebombed pro-life CompassCare remarks, “Coincidentally, both of these arrests occurred in places where our private investigators are currently conducting investigations. With over 300 total victims, what are the odds? If that is what it takes to shame the FBI and DOJ into action, maybe we should offer other pro-life groups the opportunity to have our team investigate their incidents too?” In an affidavit filed one day before Roychowdhury’s arrest it notes that ATF found DNA for three different individuals. Since the FBI identified the alleged assailant using DNA evidence from the Madison crime scene, CompassCare’s attorney working with the Thomas More Society asked the FBI if it collected DNA evidence for the Buffalo firebombing as well. They did not confirm.
The DOJ announcement yesterday is its first press release pertaining to any of the over 300 attacks on pro-life entities which began last May. However, the release did not identify the victim of the attack as pro-life. Also, the press release appears to have the Senate and House Judiciary Committees in mind as the audience. The committees are currently looking into the dereliction of the DOJ and FBI in their duty to investigate this rampant pro-abortion Antifa terror spree, targeting Christian pro-life groups.
The DOJ frontloads the unusually long release with five self-congratulatory quotes designed to bolster the battered reputation of the FBI and DOJ. One quote from DOJ Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen reads, “I commend the commitment and professionalism of law enforcement personnel who worked exhaustively to ensure that justice is served.” Another from FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Hensle says, “We remained vigilant during this investigation and worked with our law enforcement partners to methodically and thoroughly address every aspect of this act of violence.”
Rev. Harden responds to Assistant AG Olsen, “Since when did just one arrest without a proper indictment or conviction equal justice? Unless I am mistaken, the premise of America’s legal system is that people are innocent until proven guilty. Justice will not be served until there is a conviction in this case and the Maoist Antifa insurgency attacking pro-life Christians is stopped.”
Harden goes on, “The DOJ’s shameless press release leads me to believe that they are still playing politics. What they left out of the press release speaks volumes. The DOJ fails to mention that 1) the victims of the violence are pro-life, 2) that this is just one of over 300 similar attacks nationwide, 3) that the arrest occurred nearly one year (325 days) after the incident—compared to any crimes perpetrated against abortion clinics in which arrests occur within two weeks—and 4) that the man is not being charged with committing an act of domestic terror.”
The attacks on pro-life groups, the attackers, and any co-conspirators in government fit the federal definitions of domestic terror in sections 2331 and 2332 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
