    HOUSTON -- Police went to a southwest Houston apartment to break up a disturbance but ended up finding something else, KPRC Local 2 reported Wednesday.

    WATCH IT: Rocket Launcher Found In Apartment
    A woman called police on Monday and said a man was forcing his way into her apartment in the 5300 block of Elm Street.When officers went inside, they found something that made them concerned enough to call the bomb squad.They found an AT-4 shoulder-mounted rocket launcher. It can shoot a missile nearly 1,000 feet through buildings and tanks."It gives infantrymen the advantage with an ultra-light weapon that can stop vehicles, armored vehicles as well as main battle tanks and fortifications," said Oscar Saldivar of Top Brass Military and Tactical on the North Freeway.That type of rocket launcher has been used in Iraq and Afghanistan.The renter of the apartment didn't want to talk to KPRC Local 2."This is my house," the woman said. " Get away from here. I don't want to talk to nobody."The woman did tell police that the rocket launcher belonged to Nabilaye I. Yansane, someone whom she allowed to store items at her apartment.Police records show that she didn't want Yansane at her apartment, so she called them.According to court documents, officers also found Jihadist writings that allegedly belonged to Yansane. The woman didn't want to talk to KPRC Local 2 about that, either."I don't know," she said. "You'll have to ask the police."Yansane was charged with criminal trespassing and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to three days in jail, which he has already served. No charges related to the rocket launcher or writings were filed."Other people could have had access to the apartment, so maybe if a rocket launcher was located there, as is stated in the offense report, maybe it belonged to somebody else," attorney Garl Polland said.Prosecutors said there are no state charges for having the unarmed launcher or possessing Jihadist writings, unless they contain some type of threat.The former director of Houston's FBI office said rocket launchers can be dangerous if they're in the wrong hands."I don't know any other use for those weapons except in combat," Don Clark said. "I've had them in combat, used them in combat. That's what they are used for."Houston police said they did a thorough investigation and did not find any ties to terrorists or a terrorist network.

    Anybody wondering why the Obama News has not reported on this yet?

    Or why the Obama administration is more worried about civil unrest by law-abiding domestic terrorists than than those whom are actually committed to do us harm?

    Other than this post and a post on th Michigan ResistNet pages, This story has been very quiet. So your question about obama News is a fair question. Maybe Interpol is covering up the story....

    If it had belonged to one of us so called right wing terrorists we would have been locked up and the key thrown away. I guess Muslim terrorists are another matter.

    It was an "unarmed" AT-4 this time. The next time we won't be so lucky and it's unfortunate, but I'm afraid the "next time" will include several citizens getting hurt.

    I'd like to hear more about the "Jihadist" writings (doubt, of course, that I will). Here's a question for ya'll:

    If the Jihadist writings call for killing the infidel, is this an actionable offense, in your opinion (that is, not protected by the 1A)?

    Unless it contains speciics like a time, place, method, etc. I'd say it's protected by 1A. An example would be "I think all infidels should die." Versus "I think I'll kill a bunch of infidels on Christmas Day by carrying a bomb onto a plane coming from Denmark."

    As much as certain written or spoken statements bother me, the 1A goes both ways. People are entitled to their free speech and opinions so long as it doesn't cross the line where it would infringe on the rights of others. (direct criminal threats)

    OK, GF, I basically agree with that, at least marginally, right now (which means my mind could be changed). Now, try this:

    Suppose I say: "I think all blacks should die". Do you think I might get popped for that statement? Is this not "inciting"?

    (Before anyone highjacks the thread, this statement was for illustrative purposes, only. I have made clear many times where I stand on the issue of race.)

    I don't agree with the statement, nor would I condone anyone making any statement against any race, however, it does not cross the line into the "illegal" territory that I explained earlier. The statement does not mention that you personally will do anything to facilitate the deaths, and in actuality does talk about a certainty in human life. We will all die somedeay, so simply saying to someone, "You're gonna die" or "I think you should die" doesn't say much.

    With that said, it doesn't stop anyone from extracting "street justice" on you. To put it another way, it's highly likely you're gonna get your butt kicked by someone or possibly get your face rearranged.

    Another fine example of how you may be compleatly within your "legal rights", yet end up suffering the consequences of unintelligent choices in life.

    I don't agree with the statement, either, just to get that said. I do feel that, in our PC society, you wouldn't get away with that statement. And I'm balancing that political correctness against the lack of action that we see against "Jihadists".

    I consider that we're at war with "Jihadists" so if we find someone with missives that call for Jihad, I would then consider that person to be an enemy of the state. I guess, of course, we could just "keep an eye" on them, but we see how well that works (i.e., recent Jihadist on the NW flight to Detroit).

    Just my .02 cents.
