Police Speechless When Neo-Nazi Turned Muslim Tells Them Why He Killed Roommates

Neo-Nazis and white nationalists generally fly under the radar, but the events in Charlottesville changed that in a big way. It’s nothing short of stunning to know that there are groups out there in today’s day and age that spew such hatred, but it’s an unfortunate reality. Hatred exists, and no amount of calling it out is going to make it go away. In any event, a group of Neo-Nazis in Tampa, Florida have entered the spotlight for different reasons entirely.

As the Daily Mail shares, two men have been arrested in connection with the deaths of their roommates, and they’re now also being investigated for their ties to a group known as Atomwaffen. So how did the roommates wind up dead? Devon Arthurs, the group's 18-year-old co-founder, explained to police that he killed them to prevent a terrorist attack.

“I prevented the deaths of a lot of people,” he said.

The deceased are Andrew Oneschuk, 18, and Jeremy Himmelman, 22, who were also apparently members of the group. The fourth roommate, 21-year-old Brandon Russell, wasn’t home at the time because he was at his Florida National Guard duties. Nonetheless, Arthurs claims that he’s involved as well, and that he’s been stockpiling explosives.

“FBI agents have filed explosives charges against Russell, who was dressed in a military uniform and crying outside the apartment when Arthurs led officers to the grisly scene. Asked why his roommates would plan such an attack, he responded, 'Because they want to build a Fourth Reich.' Inside the apartment the friends shared, authorities said they found guns, ammunition and bomb-making material, along with a framed picture of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh on a bedroom dresser,” the Mail reports. “Atomwaffen is German for 'atomic weapon.' The victims' families insist, however, that the two slain young men were transitioning to new phases in their lives.”

A friend of the men insists that they’re not a terrorist group, but merely just trolls that delight in sparking outrage. One example bandied about was how they picketed at the funeral for victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting. It’s estimated that the group only has a few dozen members nationwide.

“I'm a neo-Nazi. I'm not a monster,” the friend claims.

The girlfriend of one of the victims explained that there was more than meets the eye for the man she loved.

“Jeremy went through a lot of struggle in his life, and national socialism offered him the rigidity he desired, and offered him solutions for the things out of his control,” she said in an email.

“In anonymous internet posts, Atomwaffen members hailed Oneschuk and Himmelman as fallen heroes and assailed Arthurs as a race traitor. A tribute on IronMarch, a website for the 'global fascist fraternity,' included swastika-stamped photos of the slain men,” the Mail adds. “Days following the murder of the two men, Atomwaffen posted an ominous video on YouTube depicting members standing with arms extended in 'Heil Hitler' salutes and posing with guns in front of a swastika flag, their faces obscured by images of skulls. It ended with a stark slogan: 'Join your local Nazis.'”
