Alabama: Teen White Supremacist Charged With Plot To Kill Blacks & Gays

From Raw Story:

A 17-year-old student in Alabama was arrested last week for allegedly plotting to use dozens of homemade grenades to kill at least fellow six students and a teacher at Russell County High School.

Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor on Sunday said that Derek Shrout had been arrested after a teacher turned over a journal which indicated that his homemade grenades were just “a step or two away from being ready to explode,” according to the Ledger-Enquirer.

A Friday search of Shrout’s home turned up bomb-making materials, including dozens of tobacco cans and two large cans filled with pellets to be used as shrapnel. The two large cans were labeled “Fat Boy” and “Little Man,” a reference to the atomic bombs that the U.S. dropped on Japan during World War II.

Reports indicated that the 17-year-old student, who was part of the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), had gotten mixed up with a white supremacist group after moving from Kansas to Fort Benning with his military family.

“At first through JROTC, he was confident, well-rounded, but as time went by, he was doing the whole white power thing,” senior class president David Kelly told WTVM.


  1. Stuff every orifice with explosives and let him see how it feels to become “extra chunky soup.”

  2. Couldn’t he be charged with straight-up terrorism? Federal charges would be a lot harder than state or local laws would mandate. The article doesn’t say what he was actually charged with.
