Skip to comments.Ohio white nationalist, anti-Semite arrested for threatening
Posted on 08/19/2019 4:45:47 AM PDT by Lowell1775
James Reardon Jr., 20, has been charged with telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing and is being held in the Mahoning County Jail on $250,000 bond with a court hearing planned for Monday morning.
On Friday, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardons house and seized a cache of weapons and ammunition, including dozens of round of ammo, multiple semi-automatic weapons, a gas mask and bulletproof armor.
Police initially became aware of Reardon on July 11 when he posted a video on Instagram of a man shooting a semi-automatic rifle with sirens and screams in the background. He tagged the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown in the post.
"That kicked off an intense investigation, a very rapidly evolving investigation, because of the way the world is," New Middletown Police Chief Vince DEgidio told Youngstown ABC affiliate WYTV.

Reardon is an avowed anti-Semite and white nationalist and attended the deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, according to WYTV. During the raid on his house on Friday police also discovered anti-Semitic and white nationalist propaganda.

“Ohio white nationalist, anti-Semite arrested for threatening...”
Why does anyone need this much ammo? It only takes one bullet to go deer hunting.
They found “dozens” of rounds of ammunition? That’s pathetic. Looking at the “several semiautomatic weapons”, it looks like this guy only had long guns, and not many of those. I wonder how much truth if any there is in this entire report. If he was actually threatening, I want him arrested, but the report is not convincing even on that point. All I see is the ambiguous statement that he “tagged” a local Jewish center on an Instagram post about another shooting, and I’ve never been on Instagram so I may be missing the significance of that statement.
attended the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017
IIRC, it was only ‘deadly’ ‘cuz the Leftists in govt gave their new brown-shirts, Antifa, ‘room to destroy’.
I fail to recall ANY KKK rally that ‘required’ more than a few police to keep the peace.
A Winchester Nylon 66 and a box of ammo.
A Winchester Nylon 66 and a box of ammo..........
Remington made the Nylon 66 which is no a collector’s item.
We have 2 avowed anti-Semites in Congress who threw a temper tantrum because they couldn’t travel to Israel to denounce Jews.
no = now
its starting to pick up steam. A white supremacist isn't a danger to anyone because they are a white supremacist.
What does that have to do with someone directly threatening to kill Jews and having the means to do so?
Dang! This dude is a major “thought-criminal”.
I’d like to see “anti-semite” in the headlines of all of the articles when they are quoted.
As to this case, good they caught the guy and are prosecuting.
However, some very famous anti-semites were defended by the press for days last week.
Last year there was an arson case in NYC, I can’t recall if it was a temple or Jewish community center. It made headlines during the fall election.
When it was discovered that the fire was set by a black man who worked on the city’s hate crimes task force the story went away. He was a “confused young man” we were told.
Ah, understood. It’s amazing to me that there are some people on this thread who are saying “oh it was only a few dozen rounds” acting like this guy didn’t deserve to be locked up. The media’s fascination with saying “white nationalist” should not overshadow guys like this who are real threats to commit violence.
He’s a gay black man who is a product of the NYC foster system. No way he was going to be held truly responsible for his crimes.
Eric Clanton got three years PROBATION. For a half dozen, separate, potentially lethal attacks.
The guy in Dayton had put a gun to his ex-girlfriend’s head and she never went to the cops. An ex-girlfriend viewed a rampage killing on his phone and he expressed interest to do the same someday.
People know who the potential killers are. They choose to do nothing. Just ask the Orlando shooter’s wife, who drove him to the gay bar numerous times and was aware of his plan. How is that vicious bitch not in prison?
