South Carolina Man Planned Shooting 'In The Spirit Of Dylann Roof'

Benjamin Thomas Samuel McDowell

He is an ex-convict who built bonds with white supremacists while serving prison sentences for several offenses, the complaint says.

On or about January 6, 2017, according to the complaint, McDowell had requested an "iron", a code word for a gun, over Facebook Instant Messenger.

"I'm wanting to do this s--, and I got the heart to do this", the complaint quotes McDowell as saying.

Appearing before a federal magistrate court on Thursday, Mr McDowell was charged for a violation of "possessing of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person".

According to court papers, McDowell said: "I'm wanting to do this shit, and I got the heart to do this".

The FBI arrested a white supremacist with felony convictions for buying a gun from an undercover agent, the Justice Department announced this week. "'I want to do that (expletive)".

A previous dossier of McDowell's arrest included the man being busted for malicious injury to animals, personal property, second-degree burglary, drug possession of marijuana, along with assault and battery in the third degree.

The FBI has arrested a white supremacist who allegedly planned to carry out a Dylann Roof-style massacre against a SC synagogue.

In December 2016 and January 2017, McDowell allegedly posted messages on Facebook - often times targeting his hatred toward Jews, and in one instance threatening a synagogue. Additionally, McDowell said he would like hollow-point ammunition for the gun.

McDowell told the officer he had not decided on a place or time to conduct the attack, but he apparently wanted to carry out the attack outside Horry County.

Roof, a white nationalist, was sentenced to death for the killings of nine members of a historically black church in 2015.

This parallels the recent attack by a Trump-supporting white supremacist on a Quebec City mosque, an attack Trump's team bizarrely used to justify its ban on Muslim immigrants.

"I've got the heart to do that s***, but I don't have the good training", he allegedly claims. They arrested him "soon after" at the Hampton Inn on Celebrity Circle in Myrtle Beach. Records on the J.

A 29-year-old Conway man who sympathizes with Dylann Roof was arrested on a weapons charge by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday, Feb. 16, and is being held at the Florence County Detention Center.
