  1. 150 lbs, long hair going to jail. Hope he makes a nice bride. His very image makes me sick knowing that this so called “American Patriot” represents the thinking of a segment of White America. This guy and those like him are fossils of prehistoric times, that somehow jumped the fence at Jarrasic Park. However, I know that his friends, family, neighbors and associates think he is being hfrom held for being doing his patriotic duty to preserve the way of life that they deserve, that they have known around them in their bubble of hate and segregated way of life and group thinking.

    Judgement for these folks will not come soon enough. The only purge of this vestige of thinking will come from the fact that death will come to everyone and at the end of this natural life will be the judgement of our souls true intentions will be measured.

    May you never rest in peace
