Terrifying drawings found in bedroom of Neo-Nazi, 16, convicted of terrorism

A neo-nazi teenager who made a list of places in his home city ‘worth attacking’ has been convicted of preparing to commit terrorism.

The 16-year-old boy drafted his own manifesto entitled ‘A Manual For Practical And Sensible Guerrilla Warfare Against The Kike (an offensive term for a Jewish person) System In The Durham City Area, Sieg Heil.’

Targets in Durham were listed in chapter one of his manifesto, ‘Areas to Attack’ and included schools, pubs, council buildings and post offices.

He said these locations would ‘maximise the impact of the attacks and damage the system the most’.

The teen, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, also wrote of planning to conduct an arson spree with Molotov cocktails on local synagogues and said a ‘race war was inevitable’.

A ‘things to do’ list from August 2018 included the words ‘shed empathy’, alongside a hand-drawn symbol of the Order of Nine Angles, which the court heard was a ‘self-consciously, explicitly malevolent’ Satanic organisation.

Jurors heard the boy described himself as a ‘natural sadist’ and deliberately tried to ‘dehumanise’ himself to become like the ‘living dead’.

He began supporting right-wing beliefs in 2016 but his views hardened overtime.

His ideology was described in court as a mix of neo-Nazism, Satanism and misanthropy (a dislike of human kind).

He wrote about his regression in his diary and believed that a collapse of civilisation should be ‘accelerated’ through acts of violence and criminality.

By December 2018 he had joined an extreme right-wing website forum, said to be an ‘online meeting ground for fascists’, where he downloaded a manual which contained a viable recipe for the highly explosive chemical ammonium nitrate.

In journal entries the youth wrote of his admiration for Adolf Hitler – ‘a brave man to say the least’, Moors murderer Ian Brady – saying ‘how wonderful it is to be an amoral individual’ and murderous cult leader Charles Manson.



Analysis of his computer devices and mobile phone uncovered numerous internet searches on firearms, explosives and knives.

Various handwritten documents were seized from his bedroom in March by police who also found a collection of far-right literature.

He was first interviewed by police in autumn 2017, when his school reported a Twitter account he used to express support for  National Action, an outlawed British neo-Nazi group.

In the month before his arrest,  the defendant repeatedly searched for and visited websites related to ‘lone wolf’ attacks by the likes of Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage,  and Columbine High School shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.


Giving evidence, the defendant said he had few friends and claimed he adopted a fake right-wing persona for ‘shock value’ to feel better about himself.

He claimed he had no intention of carrying out any attacks and wept as the jury read out their verdict.

On Wednesday he was found guilty of preparation of six terrorist acts between October 2017 and March this year at Manchester Crown Court.

The boy is the youngest person to be convicted of planning a terrorist attack in the UK.

He will be sentenced on January 7.
