    Hal Turner, the North Bergen Internet radio host and blogger serving a 33-month sentence for threatening three U.S. judges, agreed to let the government destroy his firearms after the judge in his case ordered them returned to his mother. Federal prosecutors told U.S. District Judge Donald E. Walter in Brooklyn on Feb. 28 that they wanted to destroy the four weapons and pay Turner for them rather than return them. They said e-mails he wrote appeared to show he planned to pursue judicial and law-enforcement officials after he is released from prison. "Mr. Turner has directed me to agree to...

    For more than five years, Hal Turner of North Bergen lived a double life. The public knew him as an ultra-right-wing radio talk show host and Internet blogger with an audience of neo-Nazis and white supremacists attracted to his scorched-earth racism and bare-knuckles bashing of public figures. But to the FBI, and its expanding domestic counter-terror intelligence operations in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, Turner was "Valhalla" — his code name as an informant who spied on his own controversial followers. Turner's clandestine past was confirmed this past summer when he was jailed on charges that he made...
