Three of the 4 males—Justin Hermanson, 21, who used the code title “Sandman”; Liam Collins, 21, aka “Disciple”; and Jordan Duncan, 25, aka “Soldier”—had met whereas serving within the U.S. Marine Corps. The fourth—Paul Kryscuk, 35, whose nom de plume was “Deacon”—was a porn star (below the stage title “Pauly Harker”) who had lived most of his life on Lengthy Island, New York. He met the opposite males on-line within the now-defunct neo-Nazi message board Iron March, and was the group’s normal chief, although all they recognized as members of the terrorist group Atomwaffen Division.

Again in 2017, when Iron March was nonetheless energetic, the boys had mentioned amongst themselves tips on how to create “a modern-day SS,” as one among them put it, referencing the Nazi paramilitary group Schutzstaffel, the indictment says. Kryscuk outlined the group’s long-range plan then:

  • “First order of enterprise is pulling down The System, mounting it and smashing it’s face till it has been crushed previous the purpose of loss of life … ultimately we should carry the rifles out and go to work.”
  • “Second order of enterprise … is the seizing of territory and the Balkanization of North America. Shopping for property in distant areas which can be already predominantly white and proper leaning, networking with locals, coaching, farming, and stockpiling.”
  • “Begin shopping for property now within the sorts of areas talked about above and get to work on constructing your individual group. …As time goes on on this battle, we’ll increase our territories and slowly take again the land that’s rightfully ours. … As we construct our forces and our numbers, we’ll transfer into the city areas and clear them out. This can be a floor struggle very paying homage to Iraq as we’ll primarily be dealing with an rebel power made up of criminals and gang members.”

Kryscuk purchased a house within the Boise space in February 2020 and moved there, and Duncan and Collins regularly adopted swimsuit. Hermanson—who was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and stays an energetic member of the Marine Corps—joined them in July for a coaching train within the Idaho desert. The individuals compiled a video of the stay footage from that coaching, displaying Kryscuk and one other particular person firing quite a lot of rifles. On the finish, the 4 males—all outfitted in Atomwaffen masks—are seen giving the Nazi salute beneath a Sonnenrad, an occult Nazi image. The ultimate body reads: “Come residence white man.”

Prosecutors say the aim of the gun-running scheme was “to frequently and repetitively manufacture and transport firearms and firearm components, to incorporate suppressors, in a way that the federal government wouldn’t know the recipients had them, for felony functions”—specifically “in furtherance of a civil dysfunction.”

The “civil dysfunction” included attacking the Black Lives Matter motion, together with its management. Garza reported in a tweet final week that the FBI had knowledgeable her that her title had appeared on an inventory of targets present in one of many males’s houses in Boise.

“This is the reason this President is so harmful,” she added. “He’s stoking fires he has no intention of controlling. I’m okay y’all, however this shit is just not okay.”

The neo-Nazi gang had twice carried out surveillance on BLM occasions in Boise: First, on July 21, at a rally on the campus of Boise State College, Kryscuk was noticed inside visible vary of the occasion, first sitting in a parked automobile and driving across the gathering slowly.

Then, on August 18, Kryscuk was noticed lurking within the neighborhood of a BLM rally/protest at a park in downtown Boise.

Kryscuk and Duncan simply final month mentioned in a textual content chat how issues would go down after their group—which they referred to as “the BSN” (a prosecutors workplace spokesman declined to elucidate the that means of the acronym)—attacked BLM marchers as they envisioned:

“How the BSNs finna be pulling as much as chipotle after hitting legs,” Duncan requested.

“Loss of life squad,” Kryscuk answered, including: “Assassins creed hoodies and suppressed 22 pistols.”

“Folks freaking tf out,” Duncan replied.

“About what,” Kryscuk requested.

“‘The top of democracy’,” Duncan wrote.

“One can hope,” Kryscuk answered.
