Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Milwaukee Wisconsin -

The father of the Tap­pan, New York, man ac­cused of threat­en­ing to blow him­self up in Washington, D.C., said Thurs­day that the fam­ily is re­lieved fed­eral agents pre­vented his son from hurt­ing any­one.

Peter Rosen­feld’s son, Paul, is ac­cused of mak­ing a 200-pound bomb and plan­ning to det­o­nate it on Election Day on the Na­tional Mall in Washington.

Paul Rosen­feld’s pol­i­tics in­volve a con­cept called sor­ti­tion, which refers to the ran­dom se­lec­tion of peo­ple to fill po­lit­i­cal po­si­tions, ac­cord­ing to the Sor­ti­tion Foun­da­tion.

Wil­liam Sweeney Jr., the as­sis­tant di­rec­tor of the FBI’s New York field of­fice, said Paul Rosen­feld in­tended to “det­o­nate a large ex­plo­sive to kill him­self and draw at­ten­tion to his rad­i­cal be­liefs.”
