Area man charged in ‘joke’ about 9-11

He’s known as a political activist at Humboldt State University in California.
Jason T. Robo’s family also knows he has political views that fall outside the mainstream.
When Philip Robo of Leicester dropped his nephew, Jason, off at the Logan Express station in Framingham Wednesday night, he told the 26-year-old student to be careful.
He didn’t think his nephew would be charged a few hours later with holding up a Delta Air Lines flight for three hours by slapping a “9-11 was an Inside Job,” sticker on the plane’s bathroom sink.
On 11 June 2008, by a unanimous verdict of the jury, the Raytheon 9 were found not guilty of three counts of criminal damage at the Raytheon offices, Derry Northern Ireland on 9 August 2006.
Immediately afterwards, the defendants addressed supporters and press outside Belfast’s Laganside Court. Colm Bryce began:
The Raytheon 9 have been aquitted today in Belfast for their action in decommissioning the Raytheon offices in Derry in August 2006. The prosecution could produce not a shred of evidence to counter our case that we had acted to prevent the commission of war crimes during the Lebanon war by the Israeli armed forces using weapons supplied by Raytheon.
We remain proud of the action we took and only wish that we could have done more to disrupt the ‘kill chain’ that Raytheon controls.
