White Supremacist Threatens A Shooting At Walmart, Gets Arrested

Days after America witnessed one of the most horrific mass-shootings in El Paso and Dayton, this news surfaced.

According to police, a 26-year-old white supremacist, Richard Clayton, has been arrested after he made an online threat. He was arrested in Florida by the Department of Law Enforcement after he posted a threat on Facebook.


Reportedly, on August 6th, Clayton posted, "3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week."

Clayton's threat has stark similarities with that of the El Paso shooter Crusius'. Crusius carried out the horrific mass-shooting with an AR-15 rifle and both of them follow the same ideology. Also, the El Paso shooter has allegedly written an online manifesto hours before the carnage.


"Clayton appears to believe in the white supremacist ideology and has a history of posting threats on Facebook using fictitious accounts," Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said.

Charged with intimidation, Clayton is held at Orange County Jail on a $15,000 bond. Recent cases of arrests of white supremacists also include 23-year-old Conor Climo who was arrested from Las Vegas for allegedly planning a mass shooting at a gay-nightclub and possessing bomb-making material.
