#Florida White Supremacist Arrested for Plot to Shoot Up #Walmart; #FBI Still Fixated on ‘Black Identity Extremists’ – #terror

Florida cops arrested a 26-year-old man Friday after he threatened to shoot up a Walmart—an instant callback to the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas last week that claimed 22 lives. As ABC News reports, Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials say Richard Clayton posted on his Facebook account on August 6, “3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week.” Last week’s shooting in El Paso, which took place at a Walmart, was done with an AR-15. And while Clayton wasn’t actually on probation at the time he posted the threat, officials say he “appears to believe in the white supremacist ideology and has a history of posting threats on Facebook using fictitious accounts.” He’s at least the second white supremacist this week to be arrested for plotting a mass shooting. Officials arrested a 23-year-old from Las Vegas last Thursday for allegedly planning to fire-bombe a synagogue, ABC News reports. The suspect had disclosed neo-Nazi and white supremacist beliefs in online conversations with an undercover FBI agent.
