Florida Man Allegedly Planned to Burn Down Condo Complex to ‘Kill All Jews’

MIAMI BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT

A 72-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly plotted to burn down an apartment building to “kill all Jews,” according to WTVJ. Walter Stolper, of Miami, was charged with attempted murder and attempted first-degree arson after he was found pushing a “shopping cart with two containers full of gasoline” near the apartment complex. Stolper dropped eight more gas containers into the building’s trash chute, causing the gas to be spread throughout the building, authorities said. Witnesses said Stolper was upset about being evicted from his condo in the complex, with one person saying that he told neighbors he intended to burn down the building with “all the (expletive) Jews.” They also said Stolper bought fans to increase the fire damage, and purchased padlocks to put on fire hoses so first responders would have a tougher time putting the blaze out. When police searched his unit, they found 28 containers with gasoline, sulfur powder, and potassium nitrate, Miami police said. His apartment also had swastikas and books on Nazis.
