Another White Supremacist Arrested After Threatening To Shoot Up A Florida Walmart

Three days after a deranged shooter killed more than 20 shoppers at a Walmart in Texas, a Florida man wrote a threatening Facebook post warning people not to go to Walmart because he was about to get an assault rifle, authorities said in a statement Saturday.


Richard Clayton, 26,  a self-proclaimed white supremacist and has a history of posting threats on social media using fictitious accounts, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

“3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back,” he allegedly wrote Tuesday on Facebook, before specifically naming the store. “Don’t go to Walmart next week.”


Police said Clayton — who lives in Winter Park, a city north of Orlando — was charged with making written threats to kill or do bodily harm.

The gunman in the Aug. 3 El Paso massacre, which authorities have described as a terrorist attack, also appears to have white nationalist beliefs.

Florida authorities urged the public to report suspicious activities at all times.
