A Louisiana man charged in the random killings of two black men had a copy of a speech by Adolf Hitler in his home.

Kenneth Gleason was named a person of interest in two Baton Rouge homicides over the past week, and police said he would be booked Tuesday on two counts of first-degree murder, reported The Advocate.

The 23-year-old Gleason is accused of killing 59-year-old Bruce Cofield on Sept. 12 and 49-year-old Donald Smart on Thursday.

Police said the killings appeared to be racially motivated.

Gleason was taken into custody Saturday and questioned in the killings, and he was arrested on two unrelated drug counts.

Detectives said they found 9 grams of marijuana and human growth hormones at the home he shares with his parents.

Police said they didn’t have enough evidence at the time to charge him in the killings, although he and his vehicle fit the suspect description.

He posted $3,500 bond and was released Sunday, but he was arrested again the following day for allegedly stealing The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy from a bookstore.

Gleason posted $500 bond early Tuesday and released from jail, but police named him a suspect after his DNA was found on spent bullet casings in the homicide cases.

Law enforcement officials said a Hitler speech was turned up among Gleason’s belongings during a search of his home.

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
