Internet radio shock jock Harold (Hal) Turner was sentenced Tuesday to 33 months in prison for threatening three federal judges. Federal Judge Donald Walter sentenced Turner after the right-wing talk show host ranted in Brooklyn Federal Court for an hour about his innocence, the three criminal trials it took to convict him and over-zealous prosecutors. (Snip) Prosecutors asked the judge to slam Turner with six years in prison for writing on his blog that three appellate judges in Chicago "deserved to die" for overturning a local ban on handguns.

Still working as a snitch Hal? Who you trying to smoke out now?
“claimed his government handlers at the time had urged him to make provocative statements and advocate for violent resistence to smoke out domestic terrorists”
Wow. That’s a heck of a statement.
No handler who ever wants a search warrant approved in the future is going to tell one of their informants to call for the death of federal judges.
Not directly, but he’s claiming that’s how he interpreted “make provocative statements and advocate for violent resistence”
And it’s a pretty specific claim. Most people, when they lie, tend to go for something general, something that everyone can understand.
They don’t tend to zero in on something incredibly specific like that.
They couldn't resist, the NY Daily New pricks! Hal Turner is a White Nationalist talk show host....when he isn't a Government informant.
Informers don't do well in the Joint. He better be in the Security Housing Unit (SHU).
Sounds more like a Zero supporter.
Its illegal to say that you think “someone deserves to die?”
Only if you’re a conservative
A conservative that is pro gun control?
“A conservative that is pro gun control?”
Possible an overzealous Liberal reporter wanting to blame conservatives somehow.
