    In this undated image taken from BRIC TV video, journalist Juan Thompson sits on a panel in New York, which was discussing racism. Thompson, who is accused of making bomb threats to several Jewish centers across the country, requested to be released on bond. A decision has not yet been made.

    An assistant U.S. attorney in St. Louis says the man accused of making threats against at least eight Jewish institutions is responsible for a "hateful crime."

    Juan Thompson of St. Louis was in court Wednesday seeking release on bond. U.S. Magistrate Judge David Noce did not immediately issue a ruling.

    Thompson is charged in New York with one federal count of cyberstalking. His public defender, Lucille Liggett, told Noce that Thompson would agree to house arrest at his mother's home and GPS monitoring, and would agree not to use a computer, cellphone or other electronic device.

    But Assistant U.S. Attorney Howard Marcus called Thompson "unstable" and says he should remain jailed.

    [NATL] Shooting at 2nd Wisconsin High School Leaves Community in Shock

    A school officer and a student were injured at Wisconsin's Oshkosh West High School Tuesday morning, when the student was shot after attempting to stab the officer with a sharp object. The shooting comes just one day after a school resource officer at Waukesha South High School shot a 17-year-old armed student who refused to drop his weapon.

    Federal authorities say the threats were part of a bizarre plot to harass and frame an ex-girlfriend.
