Brandon Darby, who helped organize the RNC protests, details in an open letter why he became an FBI informant.
He says it wasn’t for money or to avoid prosecution but because he discovered that a few fellow activists were planning to make bombs.
The majority of the activists who went to St. Paul did so with pure intentions and simply wanted to express their disagreements with the Republican Party. It’s unfortunate that some used the group as cover for intentions that the rest of the group did not agree with or knew nothing about and are now, consequently, having parts of their lives and their peace of mind uprooted over.
He and others will be testifying against the RNC8 during their upcoming trials on felony terrorism charges.
