Joseph Konopka of De Pere told federal Judge Wayne Andersen in Chicago Thursday he really didn't have "a real good reason" when asked why he went on the vandalism spree. Konopka, who calls himself "Dr. Chaos," will be sentenced in federal court in Wisconsin for his sabotage of power lines, air traffic control signals, and radio transmission towers. Judge Andersen says his sentence in Wisconsin is likely to be consecutive to his 13-year term for taking two bottles of cyanide from an abandoned chemical warehouse and hiding them in the subway tunnel. Defense attorney Matthew Madden says his client's penchant for destruction and bizarre behavior "stems from an abnormal maturation process." - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
