WASHINGTON ― A self-proclaimed Nazi who worshipped white supremacist terrorist Dylann Roof and called the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter a “hero” was sentenced to time served on a federal gun charge Friday and will be released from federal custody after 10 months behind bars.
Jeffrey Clark was arrested last November after concerned relatives contacted authorities, who charged him with a rarely used charge of addict in possession of a weapon because he used marijuana, which is legal in D.C.
While he evidently never developed a specific plan of attack, prosecutors said he was “a bomb” ready to explode, and relatives were especially concerned that he might do something drastic after his brother died by suicide. The Clark brothers lived in the Bloomingdale, a historically Black but rapidly gentrifying neighborhood in Washington, D.C. Neighbors said they invited fellow right-wing extremists to their home.
