TERROR SCARE

Alabama Student Planned To Kill Gay, Black Classmates In Bomb Attack

Teenage white supremacist Derek Shrout has been arrested in Russell County, Alabama, after a teacher discovered a journal detailing his plot to attack his school with homemade explosives.

“The journal contained several plans that looked like potential terrorist attacks, and attacks of violence and danger on the school,” said Russell County sheriff Heath Taylor. Six students and one teacher were specifically targeted by Shrout, all but one of whom were black. Shrout’s journal indicated he though the white male on his list was gay.

“That’s the reason the white male was on the list. It screams hate crime,” said Heath.

Shrout, 17, started writing in his journal just three days after the Sandy Hook massacre, and a search of his home uncovered materials that could be used in bomb-making. His bail was set at $75,000, which his family paid on Monday.

      Violent white supremacist, not that there is any other kind of course.

      Funny how this act of obvious domestic terrorism won’t attract the correct attention, if he was black or brown he’d be shipped off to Guantanamo already. But he is white and christian so it’ll be a telling off and a token jail sentence.

      Gee, and this happened in Alabama????? What a shock.

      It’s a shame, there are lots of nice people in the deep south but currently their politicians etc… are doing their best to maintain the idea of it as a bigoted backwater.

      What’s wrong with these privileged white kids? You expect to hear some story about abuse, a troubled child hood, living in poverty, but it’s always some spoiled little white kid plotting to shoot up the school.

      Yahoo, which is a rightwing cesspool, emphasizes the “white power angle” and fails to mention that one of the intended targets was gay.

      I expected this before I read the article.

      “Authorities say Shrout has said he is a white supremacist and that most of his intended targets for the bomb were black students.” from Yahoo.

      I suppose it would dilute the media’s whipping up of racist resentment.
