Five bomb suspects attempted to create their own version of the Oklahoma City bombing work of Timothy McVeigh, but the men, instead, appear to be more like the Three Stooges in their failed efforts to blow up a bridge that connects Cleveland and Ohio City.
In planning stages for the attack the first glimpse of Moe emerges, with Douglas Wright stating that when it came to the group's first target--tunnels under the city--"he thought the police had too many cameras and security personnel monitoring the tunnels," in order for them to be successful, according to paragraph 17 of the criminal complaint.
That led the group to rethink that particular approach to their joint bomb effort and consider other targets, which leads to the first glimpse of Three Stooges' Curly thinking.
In paragraph 25 of the criminal complaint, Fox 8 in Cleveland reported the bomb suspects "talked about taking action, using stink bombs and paint guns," in attacks against a bank.
It's pretty obvious how that would have turned out with armed bank guards to contend with, right? And it sounds just like a Curly idea--stupid, but relatively harmless, except to the criminals.
But the group of five teetered between Moe and Curly moments enough that when Wright/Moe talked of driving a car into the Federal Reserve Bank, as depicted in paragraph 54 of the complaint, the FBI knew they'd have to intervene, in the end.
Larry made his appearance in the group as Brandon Baxter, having the brainy idea outlined in paragraph 71 that they could use tacks to throw out of the back of their car and elude chasing cops if it came to it.
If the group bombed a bank the last thing they'd have to worry about is cop cars chasing them.
Baxter is also the one that got picked to lead a march through the city, as a decoy away from the river where the bomb would detonate. It's a safe bet it wasn't his own idea.
Fortunately, these five fellows were more Three Stooges than Timothy McVeigh material, resulting in their uneventful apprehension prior to any bombings.
