Boulder man who had "hunting guides" for Jews, Muslims is arrested on child pornography charge

A Boulder man arrested on a federal charge of possessing child pornography had posted "hunting guides" with information about mosques, synagogues and refugee centers, and had recently tried to buy a gun but his purchase was denied, according to federal court documents.

Wesley David Gilreath, 29, was ordered by a magistrate judge on Tuesday to be held in federal custody because of "convincing evidence" that he is a danger to the community, the documents said.

"The charge in this case demonstrates that the U.S. Attorney’s Office and our federal and state law enforcement partners will use every available law enforcement tool not just to prosecute federal crimes, but also to disrupt and prevent potential hate crimes," U.S. Attorney for Colorado Jason Dunn said in a statement. "The investigation of federal crimes beyond that charged in this matter is continuing."

Gilreath also had "numerous" white supremacist documents and had failed to appear in court multiple times, according to U.S. Magistrate Judge Scott T. Varholak's detention order. Authorities began investigating the case on June 1, when an RTD employee found an iPhone with child pornography on it on a bus in Boulder, according to a criminal complaint filed July 31.

Another least-supreme white supremacist.

1. And this from the same article ...

When Gilreath tried to buy a gun from a Boulder store in May, he filled out a form from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and provided his Colorado driver's license number. His purchase was denied.

The same day, he texted his father: "You've permanently ruined my ability to buy a gun in CO and other states," the criminal complaint said.


Maybe the families of these idiots right now until Congress acts are our best defense against the idiots. Even that's a scary thought.

2. Did his Father have a protection order against him?

Colorado has universal background checks.

3. " had failed to appear in court multiple times"

Yeah, that sounds like a no bail recommendation to me.
