Hal Turner Denied Bail: Weapons Found, Danger to Community, Said Judge

June 25, 2009

(ChattahBox)—White Supremacist Hal Turner was denied bail in a federal court hearing in New Jersey on Thursday, by U.S. Magistrate Michael Shipp, after considering the seriousness of the charges and the discovery of weapons and ammunition in Turner’s home.

Neo-Nazi, white supremacist and all around purveyor of hate, blogger and Internet radio host, Hal Turner is charged with inciting violence with the publishing of threatening blog posts and faces charges of threatening to assault or murder three Chicago area federal appellate judges.

U.S. Magistrate Shipp ordered Turner transferred to Illinois to face the charges, which carry a prison sentence of up to 10 years. Shipp denied bail, concerned about the find of three pistols, a shotgun and several hundred rounds of ammunition stored at Turner’s apartment on Wednesday.

Attorneys from both sides had reached a bail agreement, which would have released Turner on a $200,000 bond, guaranteed by his mother’s home, restricting him to his home and prohibited from using the Internet that would be monitored by software. But Shipp rejected the bail agreement, believing public safety would be better served by keeping the white supremacist behind bars.

“I’m concerned about the danger to the community,” said Magistrate Shipp. One of Turner’s blog posts ominously stated, “These judges deserve to be killed,” along with, the judges’ work address, room numbers, photos, telephone numbers and a promised map of their homes.

Turner also faces earlier charges in Connecticut, after inciting violence against three state officials, calling on readers to “to take up arms” against the officials.

Turner’s attorney, Michael Orozco described the charges against his client as “clearly a First Amendment issue.”

    Incitement to commit murder is not more a First Amendment issue than the suppression of idiots screaming “Fire” in a crowded, not-burning theater.

    Turner should be locked up. A maximum security prison full of Blacks and Hispanics might be a good home for him, Hannity, Limbaugh, Cheney, and Bush.

    Our power elite is Satanic and anyone that would say something like this is Satanic, as well.

    “Turner should be locked up. A maximum security prison full of Blacks and Hispanics might be a good home for him, Hannity, Limbaugh, Cheney, and Bush.”

    I thought Hal Turner was a jack ass, but I don’t think we should lose our freedoms because of some jack ass.
