A man accused of being part of a neo-Nazi group in Washington state appears headed for federal prison. But his friend remains unaccounted for. King County say he is the leader of “Atomwaffen Division” in Washington. King County officials say they remain concerned that members of the neo-Nazi group “Atomwaffen Division” (which means ‘atomic weapons’ in German) are taking steps toward “ideologically-motivated violence.” Last October, officials obtained an extreme risk protection order (available under “red flag” laws in many states) to seize nine firearms from Kaleb Cole’s home in Arlington, Wash. They said Cole is a leader of the neo-Nazi group. Cole did not appear at court hearings to contest the seizure. In November, Cole was found in Texas when police pulled over a car he was traveling in. Inside the vehicle were firearms and marijuana. King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg said they issued a warrant for Cole’s arrest after the incident in Texas, citing “unlawful gun possession.” (…) In seeking the ERPO, King County and the Seattle Police Department claimed that Cole “is a self-admitted member of the Atomwaffen Division,” and is believed to be the cell leader in Washington who has helped organize “hate camps.” Officials pointed to video clips and photos on Cole’s personal cell phone. They argue that the photos showed members of Atomwaffen Division in Washington state training with high-capacity weapons. And they said the evidence suggested Cole had “gone from espousing hate to now taking active steps or preparation for an impending ‘race war.’”
