He continued: "If I could do something on a (expletive) big scale and write on the (expletive) building or whatever, 'In the spirit of Dylann Roof'". "All they wanne do is stay loaded on drugs the Jews put here to destroy white man and they feast on the drugs".
In another conversation, McDowell said "I just be plotting it out, like, I mean you just run up there on them if they back there partying, and all, with a f****** AK and rip them sumbitches down, and throw, a damn, something at them".
The document said McDowell instructed the agent to pick him up from his mother's house on Wednesday and drive him to the home of his grandfather so he could borrow the money to buy a handgun from the agent.
McDowell met with the undercover agent on January 12th, believing the agent was someone who 'handled problems for the Aryan Nations.' Speaking in a hotel while carrying marijuana, McDowell told the agent he wanted to unleash a massacre on non-whites and walk away 'scot-free' because he feared going back to prison. He posted rambling, expletive-filled white supremacist rants on Facebook, and in early January, requested an "iron" - or gun - from someone through Facebook instant messenger, according to the complaint.
On Wednesday, McDowell handed the operative $109 for hollow point bullets and a.40-caliber Glock pistol that had been disabled without his knowledge.
During the same meeting, McDowell "further voiced apparent frustration with other white supremacists, stating that screaming "white power" was not getting the job done", the complaint states.
McDowell was arrested in the Hampton Inn parking lot soon after the purchase was completed. The Horry County Police Department told the FBI that McDowell had "established White Supremacy Extremist connections while serving prison sentences in SC for various criminal offenses", according to an affidavit from FBI Special Agent Grant Lowe that was filed in federal court.
"I wish the day we all get off Facebook and white Warriors like we was born to be like Dylan roof but we gotta do it in a smart [way]", the post read.
"I seen what Dylann Roof did, and in my heart I reckon I got a little bit of hatred".
Upon his arrest, McDowell faced a charge for felon in possession of a firearm notes the nydailynews.
McDowell told the officer he had not decided on a place or time to conduct the attack, but he apparently wanted to carry out the attack outside Horry County. He was then taken to federal court in Florence and booked into the Florence County Detention Center. Reuben Long Detention Center website indicated that McDowell was released Thursday morning.
