Robert Lorenzo Hester Jr., 25, was taken into custody on Friday after meeting up with undercover FBI agents posing as terrorists who he'd been speaking to for months. He had agreed to supply weapons and help organize a Presidents' Day terror attack at bus and train stations across Kansas City that would be more deadly than the Boston marathon bombings. Hester served in the military for one year before being given general discharge in 2013 (inset).
