Eric Frein, the man who police say shot and killed one Pennsylvania police officer and seriously injured another, has been charged with two counts of terrorism.
Prosecutors say Frein shot the officers with the purpose of influencing government policy and affecting the conduct of government, which allows them to charge him with terrorism. These charges are based around a letter Frein wrote to his parents.
The letter reads: "Tension is high at the moment and the time seems right for a spark to ignite a fire in the hearts of men. ... There is so much wrong and on so many levels [that] only passing through the crucible for another revolution can get us back to the liberties we once had."
