Houston man charged with trying to plant bomb at Confederate statue in Hermann Park

The late-night confrontation at the statue of Confederate Lt. Dick Dowling — detailed in court records by a federal agent — led to the arrest of 25-year-old Andrew Schneck, setting off a two-day operation by law enforcement that forced the evacuation of the tony Rice University neighborhood where Schneck lives with his parents.

Bomb squad experts detonated a cache of high-powered explosives found on the property Monday afternoon as residents waited to return to their homes.

The arrest marked the latest chapter in a growing fight over Confederate statues that has sparked protests across the country, punctuated by a deadly clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters Aug. 12 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Schneck, charged Monday with attempting to maliciously damage or destroy property, was ordered into federal custody pending a court hearing later this week. If convicted, he could face up to 40 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    The failure of our schools in the last 50 years to teach the history of our country, inluding the Northern Aggression of the South, has caused such misunderstanding of the Confederacy that we can hardly expect any other behavior from uneducated children as we now see.Will SOMEBODY tell these idiots that in 1865 almost everyone including constitutional lawyers believed that since each state had individually joined the union, that each state had a perfect right to withdraw from said union. And that the civil war was NOT fought over slavery but rather unfair taxation of the southern states economic mainstay by the yankee controlled congress.
