Collin County crackpot injures self with own bomb

Presented for your approval, one Anson Chi, anti-government, anti-tax activist and organizer for Ron Paul.

The FBI suspect and 33-year-old political activist has been a fugitive since 2009 in California, where authorities say he violated his probation on a concealed-weapon conviction.

He was arrested in Collin County in April, charged with failing to identify himself to authorities.

Early Monday, a week before he was scheduled to appear in court in that case, an explosion in the 3600 block of West Parker Road damaged an above-ground gas line, shot shrapnel into the air and put Chi in the hospital with critical injuries.


Story here

As if you couldn't guess. . .

By 2012, Chi was living with his parents in a house on Anchor Drive, which they have owned for more than two decades. Neighbors there described him as a “glum,” “weird” and “spooky” recluse.

4. Officials say Texas man tried to blow up natural gas pipeline in suburban Dallas neighborhood

By Associated Press, Published: June 22

... Federal prosecutors have charged Anson Chi with possessing an explosive device, after authorities say he detonated a bomb at a natural gas regulator station in the Dallas suburb of Plano late Sunday. Chi was critically injured in the blast, which caused minimal damage to the station ...

Online court records didn’t list an attorney for Chi, 32. A woman who answered the phone Friday at the Plano home where Chi lived hung up without commenting ...

He included among his interests “Truthmongering” and “Guns_the bigger, the better!” ...

“So until I see that law, this is what I am going to do,” Chi said as he then ripped up a 1040 tax form. “I will not file nor will I pay a single penny in income tax until I see the law. So let’s all stand together and fight the inequities of our government, as well as their corruption and exploitation of our rights and civil liberties” ...

... "It's not just the IRS," said Anson Chi in a 2007 online radio interview. "It's also the government and the federal reserve. It's everything tied together, and they're all working as one. And so, you can't just attack one part of the dragon, you've got to attack the whole dragon and slay the head off."

Chi's Facebook and MySpace pages are filled with political cartoons, gag photos and anti-Obama messages. Born and raised in New York City, the 33-year-old Chi describes himself as an author, politician, model, activist and retired engineer ...

He also had troubles with the law. San Angelo, Texas Police arrested him for theft in 1998. 10 years later, he had a concealed weapon conviction in California. He became a fugitive in 2009, when he violated probation in Texas by not identifying himself to police ...

... Chi was free to roam the streets, until Monday, when investigators found him badly injured near a gas line in the 3600 block of West Parker Road. Police said they believe he was injured while attempting to detonate a homemade explosive ...

... "If you were in the Army and threw a grenade, that's what it sounded like," said Scott Percourt, who lives across the street.

When police arrived, they found neighbors tending to a severely injured man, who claimed he was hit by a car.

One neighbor who did not wish to be identified told News 8 she heard the explosion, went outside, and discovered the man stumbling, bleeding profusely, and screaming for help.

"I could tell he was bleeding, so I told him to turn over and lay down," the woman said. "I just tried to talk with him a little bit and calm him down" ...
