Stables is Guilty

Ethan Stables | Greater Manchester Police | r

Neo-Nazi Ethan Stables has been convicted of planning a terror attack at a gay pride event after posting violent homophobic rants online.

Police were tipped off by a member of a far-right Facebook group who saw the unemployed 20-year-old post a message saying he was “going to war” and planned to “slaughter every single one of the gay bastards”.

Leeds Crown Court was shown footage of Stables saying “gays look nicer on fire” and burning a rainbow flag before his arrest on 23 June.

Stables was expelled from his school when he put another pupil in a headlock.
