The Orlando Sentinel reports:
FBI agents waited more than an hour at the Winter Park home of Richard Dean Clayton’s parents before the 26-year-old entered unannounced through the back door. The agents said Clayton, who had threatened to shoot up a Walmart, was “manic” — erratic, paranoid and profane.
Clayton was arrested after agents with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and Florida Department of Law Enforcement flagged Facebook posts they said the young man made under a false name, including one that said, “3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to walmart next week.”
That was Aug. 4, one day after 22 people were killed in a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Other posts allegedly made by Clayton include rants about social media censorship and one in which he describes himself as a white nationalist. Clayton remains in the Orange County Jail on a charge of making a written threat to kill.
From one of Clayton’s alleged posts:
“Everyone [in real life] calls me a ‘Nazi’ despite my countless attempts to correct their assumptions about my political beliefs by claiming that I am simply a white nationalist and registered Republican. And the only reason I balk at the terminology normies use to describe me is because I don’t fully understand national socialism’s economic principles, and because capitalist, corporate America has done very well for my family, as well as for many other families like mine.”
