Terrorist sets himself on fire as he attempts to burn down synagogue

A reich wing terrorist has been locked up in a hospital indefinitely

Quote

A far-right extremist has been locked up in a UK hospital indefinitely after setting fire to a synagogue in the city of Exeter, Press Association (PA) reports.

Tristan Morgan, whom one prosecutor described as having "deep-rooted anti-Semitic belief," was sectioned under the Mental Health Act at London's Old Bailey on Friday, after the court heard that he was having a psychotic episode during the time of the attack.

CCTV footage recovered at the scene was shared by local police. It showed Morgan using a small ax to break a window of the Exeter Synagogue, and pouring a liquid inside on July 21, 2018—on a day commemorating the Holocaust.

The 52-year-old set the liquid alight, but it backfired. CCTV footage showed him being engulfed in a sudden jet of fire from the synagogue, which blew off his cap and singed his hair. The flames also left him with burns on his hands and forehead, PA reported.

He didn't get as burned as he should have for that.

This reminds me of the Glasgow Airport attack, glad he is locked up indefinitely.

Meh

Is there a chance this piece of work may eventually be released to someplace other than jail?
