Former US Marine accused of plotting mass murder at NY synagogue

A former US Marine has been allegedly plotting a mass murder at a Long Island Synagogue as a member of the neo-Nazi group Rapekrieg. According to federal prosecutors, he planned to rape many women in order to “decrease the minorities and increase the production of white children.”

Balenger is currently being held in federal detention in Honolulu, Hawaii where he was stationed before being kicked out of the military, according to the New York Post.

If convicted, Balenger may face up to 20 years in prison. His attorney, Leighton Lee, argued that Balenger is not a risk of flight due to the fact that even though he knew he was being investigated, he didn’t try to run or hide. Lee also argued for Balenger to be on house arrest rather than going to prison. He used the United States v. Motamedi as his argument.
