White supremacist sentenced to 30 years
"A 41-year-old white supremacist caught with weapons and explosives in Atlanta has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, Channel 2 Action News reports.
Brandon Lee Hall was stopped in April 2010 on Moreland Avenue after a caller reported a suspicious person. He was found with a machete, handguns, black powder ball-bearing rounds, a map of Austin, Texas, and a possible bomb, according to Channel 2. Hall told police he was part of the Aryan Knights Brotherhood, the station reported.
Hall also carried notes that read, "Blow the switch yard," "Mass Evacuation" and "I'll get a chance at being famous," according to Channel 2.
Hall, who had a previous felony conviction, told police he needed the weapons for his personal safety, the station reported."
