North Carolina man who was found with a pickup truck full of guns and explosives had been looking for how to kill Joe Biden, prosecutors said
According to prosecutors, a North Carolina man detained for child pornography had been looking for ways to kill Joe Biden.
Court documents indicate that police found Alexander Hillel Treisman’s van, which contained numerous firearms and explosives, parked outside a bank.
A search of the 19-year-old’s devices revealed thousands of examples of child pornography, as well as evidence that he had published a meme asking, “Should I kill Joe Biden”?
Prosecutors said he searched For Biden’s address and traveled less than four miles from his home while searching for local gun laws and night vision goggles.
According to the documents, police also found a plan for a mass shooting and numerous examples of celebrations of acts of terror.
Prosecutors presented these documents as evidence that Treisman should be held without bail.
Alexander Hillel Treisman, 19, was detained solely for child pornography.
However, court documents show that prosecutors have proposed a list of evidence as reasons why he should not be released on bail. It included research on Joe Biden’s house and a to-do list ending with the word “run.”
The documents were filed at the end of September but were not made public until October 22.
Treisman drew attention on May 28 when employees at Fifth Third Bank in Kannapolis alerted police to his van, which they believed had been abandoned in their parking lot, according to the documents.
While investigating, police saw through the windows six firearms and a cartridge, an explosive material.
A search of the vehicle revealed just over $500,000 in cash and books on bomb-making, improvised weapons, and Islam. Prosecutors said they thought the money was his legacy.
He also had drawings of swastikas and planes crashing into buildings, according to court documents.
The story goes on
Police found two other weapons when Treisman arrived in his car to ask for his van, which had been towed.
According to the documents, searching his cell phones and laptops, the FBI found thousands of videos and pornographic images of children.
A search of his Internet history, including his online pseudonyms “AlextheBodacious” and “flindymapper,” also found materials suggesting an interest in killing Biden, prosecutors said.
Should I kill Joe Biden?
In court on September 28, police presented evidence that Treisman had posted an iFunny meme in April with the caption “Should I kill Joe Biden?”, according to the documents.
Prosecutors cited the timeline of his Internet searches between March and May, showing that he was looking for the address of Biden’s home and had purchased an AR-15 before going to a Wendy’s less than four miles from the candidate’s home.
The same period also showed research for state laws on firearms, rifle parts, and night vision goggles, as well as a checklist note ending with the word “execute.”
The research, according to the documents, also revealed a multitude of documents showing an interest in the massacres. These included a 2019 phone note outlining a plan for a mass shooting at a mall at Christmas or Black Friday.
Prosecutors also said there were still video images and related searches of the Christchurch Mosque shooting in New Zealand.
Under the handle “AlextheBodacious,” a message had been posted saying that he “was going to do a collie for a while, [but] I think it would be better to place him towards something more memorable,” said the documents. There were other documents relating to the shooting in Las Vegas in 2017 and audio from a male voice saying it would be “awesome” to hijack a plane and fly it into a building, prosecutors said
