NEO-NAZIS have mocked up an execution picture of a cop chief and ordered attacks on police stations in demand for the release of a teenage terror suspect.
The extremist group circulated a poster of the West Midlands Police chief with the words “race traitor” across his eyes and a gun to his head, along with the statement “Our comrade will be free”.
It accused the cop of being “responsible for the arrest of a 16-year-old National Socialist”. It’s understood a teenager was held for planning an atrocity in the UK earlier this month.
The international organisation said those working in police stations, custody suites and training suites in the region were “race traitors” and described far-right extremists as “white freedom fighters”.
It also stated that police stations should be “considered high value targets to any local NS [National Socialist]”.
The writer ended the post by saying: “**** their badges, **** the rule of law, Heil Hitler, and the remember the names of these traitors”.
The chilling posts, written on September 13, were circulated to 500 members on the encrypted messaging app Telegram.
Another image showed a knifeman standing over the royal coat of arms, and states: “Release our member or your heads will be the agenda.”
The force has confirmed it’s seeking those responsible for the images.
Whitehall sources said they were aware of the group and that specific threats were always taken seriously, The Times reports.
The group calls itself Feuerkrieg Division – the German for “fire war” – and is an off-shoot of the American Atomwaffen Division, which encourages terrorism and worships Adolf Hitler and Charles Manson.
It’s understood to be linked to the UK-based Sonnenkrieg Division. Three members of the group were arrested last year after posting a picture of the Duke of Sussex against a swastika, with a gun pointed at his head and the slogan: “See ya later, race traitor!”
The recent posts were seen by experts at international monitoring group the Counter Extremism Project before being passed on to the Daily Express.
