Remember the bomb found on the MLK parade route?

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A man tied to a white supremacist organization has waived a bail hearing on charges that he left a sophisticated bomb along a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade route in Spokane.

The 36-year-old Kevin William Harpham was arrested Wednesday and appeared in court before U.S. Magistrate Cynthia Imbrogno.

He has been charged with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and one count of possessing an unregistered explosive device. The bomb was discovered before the Jan. 17 parade and defused without incident.

Harpham will remain in the Spokane County Jail. He can request a bail hearing at a later date, or wait until a grand jury decides on March 22 if he will be indicted.

  • Harpham had been a member of the neo-Nazi National Alliance in late 2004 and that he was in the U.S. military from 1996 to 1997.


    A spokesman for Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the recently merged U.S. Army/Air Force base in Washington state, confirmed that Harpham served at the former Fort Lewis Army base from 1996 to early 1999 as a fire support specialist.

  • If he's a white supremist I'm guessing his motivation is racial. His religion only matters if his religion was the motivation. That's why his religious beliefs wouldn't be mentioned.
