Court hears teenager tried to join group ‘that believes mass shootings are good’ Unnamed 17-year-old said he wanted to provoke a race war, prosecution alleges The defendant has already denied a single count of preparation of terrorist acts. A teenager joined neo-Nazi group Feuerkrieg Division after taking an online ‘test’ where he expressed hatred for Jews and discussed making ammunition that could ‘smash heads,’ a court has heard. The second day of a trial at Birmingham Crown Court was told the 17-year-old wanted to create a firearm capable of ‘smashing heads’ after joining the so-called Feuerkrieg Division (FKD) last summer. (…) Outlining discussions the boy had on neo-Nazi group chat forums, Mr Brook said they showed the defendant was offering ‘concrete, practical advice about not only converting a blank-firing gun, but making ammunition for it that will ‘smash heads’. The court heard the teenager was given an online test to ensure he was a ‘worthy’ FKD recruit, before being admitted to two private chat groups for UK-based extremists. During the test, Mr Brook said, the youth defined fascism as ‘the pursuit of restoring the natural order’ and said he wanted to provoke a race war.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was tested online to see if he was a “worthy” recruit of the so-called Feuerkrieg Division (FKD). (…) Discussions he had on neo-Nazi group chat forums showed that he was offering “concrete, practical advice about not only converting a blank-firing gun, but making ammunition for it that will ‘smash heads”‘, Mr Brook added. In another entry read to the jury, he is alleged to have written: “I’m getting armed and getting in shape. I’d urge everyone to do the same.”
The teenager was tested by the FKD over his proposed membership of the group and also two private chat groups for UK-based far right extremists, the court heard. Mr Brooks told jurors the group believed in violence, mass shootings and the breakdown of society. But even before joining, the youth was interested in whether “this was a serious group that could be involved in physical action in the real world, rather than being in his words ‘just an online thing’, Mr Brook added. During the test, the youth defined fascism as “the pursuit of restoring the natural order” and said he wanted to provoke a race war.
