US neo-Nazi gets 3 years for plan to target Black church, bogus bomb threats – #awd #atomwaffenDivision #terror

Prosecutors say John Denton, founder and ex-leader of far-right Atomwaffen Division, was behind the largest swatting conspiracy ever taken down by the federal government. A former neo-Nazi leader in the US was sentenced to more than 3 years in prison Tuesday for his role in a conspiracy to target a Black church, a Cabinet member and more than 100 others with bogus bomb threats and 911 calls. US District Judge Liam O’Grady imposed the 41-month sentence after ruling 27-year-old John Cameron Denton’s actions should be considered a hate crime. The sentence was less than the 5-year term sought by prosecutors but more than the 18-month sentence sought by Denton’s attorney. (…) And she rejected the notion that Denton was on the road to redemption at the time of his arrest. She noted that he told an undercover officer a month before his arrest that a raid and arrest would be good for Atomwaffen because it would increase its profile. She acknowledged that Denton may have exited from Atomwaffen Division, but that was only to pursue his own brand of white supremacy. At Tuesday’s hearing, Denton, of Montgomery, Texas, offered a brief apology to his victims, to his family and to police officers who responded to the swatting calls. Judge O’Grady asked Denton about where he stands on his white-supremacist views and Denton responded that “I do not plan to go back to Atomwaffen Division or any groups like that.”
