White supremacist gets 2 years in prison for urging ‘lone wolves’ to kill Jews

A Pennsylvania white supremacist who urged “lone wolves” to kill Jews has been sentenced to two years in federal prison — despite pleas for leniency from relatives who claim he’s a changed man. Hardy Lloyd, 41, was sentenced by a judge Thursday in Pittsburgh for threats he posted on social media in April after lawmakers in the city approved three gun control bills in the aftermath of a gunman killing 11 worshipers at the Tree of Life synagogue in October, KDKA reports. “Anyone who supports such laws must be targeted, and their families murdered,” Lloyd posted. “Lone Wolves GET BUSY.” A day later, Lloyd called for the city’s move to ban certain assault-style weapons and ammunition to be defeated, while making an apparent reference to Squirrel Hill, the neighborhood where the Tree of Life massacre occurred, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. “If not, well, disobey and kill, my Lone Wolves,” Lloyd wrote. “Target: Jewhill!” Lloyd, of Dormont, posted the comments — which showed “intent and advocacy for killing,” according to Assistant US Attorney Stephen Kaufman — while on probation for violating terms of his probation after being originally convicted of gun possession in 2010.
