Where was he radicalized ? Notice how this is not being covered by major networks. Can you imagine his relatively light sentence if he was Muslim? Can you imagine the outrage from Islamophobes conservative and Liberal alike?

A Katy man who planned to launch a domestic terrorism attack last year by robbing an armored car before detonating an explosion, killing a state trooper and spraying a mosque with gunfire at prayer time has been sentenced to federal prison.
Robert James Talbot Jr. was arrested outside a Houston storage locker in March 2014 on the morning he planned to launch his nationwide “American Insurgent Movement.”
On Friday, federal prosecutors asked for 20 years, the statutory maximum sentence, saying they wanted to protect the community from someone who poses “extreme” danger to the public and law enforcement. The 39-year-old’s lawyer, Windi Pastorini, contended that her client has admitted his crimes, apologized and has “diminished capacity” that requires mental health treatment.
U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein ordered Talbot to 6½ years in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release.
