By Rod Ardehali // White supremacist praised Christchurch shooting, charged by FBI | Daily Mail Online – Bolin, who used the aliases Folk Odinist and Paul Vincent, when speaking online, discussed a possible attack in Baltimore and joined various white supremacist groups to praise the tragic events in New Zealand.

The FBI said Bolin talked to his cousin about the New Zealand gunman, telling him, ‘Brugh dude killed 40 muslims.’

Witkowski responded with a heart emoji and the word ‘lovely’.

In the messages, he encouraged another individual to buy firearms, ammunition and food, and said he would travel to meet the individual the following week for the attack.
