    PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama teenager teen who described himself as a white supremacist made journal entries about a plot to bomb classmates three days after the Newtown school massacre and began building small homemade explosives, a sheriff said Monday............

    Taylor said the boy told investigators that he's a white supremacist and five of the six students he named in his journal are black. The journal was found by a teacher, who turned it over to authorities................

    The sheriff said he didn't believe the teen's initial claim that the journal was a work of fiction.

    "When you go to his house and you start finding the actual devices that he talked about being made, no, it's not fiction anymore," Taylor said. "Those devices were — all they needed was the black powder and the fuse — he had put a lot of time and thought into that.".............

    District Judge David Johnson set bond at $75,000 and the teen's attorney said the family expected to post it by the end of the day for his release.................more at link.....

    The bond is set way too low in this case. JMO.

    Outrageous. I can't help thinking that he would have received a much, much harsher sentence if he'd been a Muslim instead of a white supremacist.
