In today’s episode of “Blatant White Privilege” at work, a neo-Nazi with an affinity for bomb-making was granted bail. According to the judge, he doesn’t pose a threat to society. 

Reports the New York Daily News:

A neo-Nazi with explosives who idolizes the Oklahoma City bomber is not a threat to society, a federal judge ruled Friday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas McCoun granted 22-year-old Brandon Russell’s bond request while awaiting trial.

“I am unable to conclude there is clear and convincing evidence that Defendant represents a threat to any other person,” the judge wrote, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Russell, who is a member of the Florida National Guard, faces federal charges after police found explosives in his apartment on May 19 where the murders of Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18, were being investigated.

Check out what has been reported about this dude who is supposedly “not a threat to society.”

Relatives of the victims said Russell had a photo of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh in his bedroom. Authorities also found copies of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and a white nationalist novel, “The Turner Diaries,” the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Russell told investigators he belonged to a neo-Nazi group called Atom Waffen, which means “atomic weapon” in German. He also said he used HTMD and bomb-making devices during his time in the engineering club at the University of South Florida, according to the Washington Post.

If Brandon Russell’s skin complexion was darker, do you think he would have been given the benefit of the doubt as this judge clearly has? Also, you can guarantee he would be labeled a terrorist or at least an ISIS-sympathizer by the media.

If you don’t think so, holla at us about this bridge we have for sale in BK.

But here’s the real kicker—Russell is the roommate of Devon Arthurs, who faces murder charges for the killing of the two roommates. Apparently, he offed them after they allegedly disrespected his newly adopted Muslim faith. Athurs also claims that at one point all the roommates were neo-nazis.

We couldn’t make this up if we tried.
