Hardy Lloyd just doesn’t know when to shut up.
The former Pennsylvania leader of the neo-Nazi group World Church of the Creator (WCOTC) began referring to himself as “the doctor of all hate” in 2003 after he was kicked out of the WCOTC following an involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital.
The next year, he shot to death Lori Hann, a 41-year-old divorced legal secretary he met online. There were no witnesses to the shooting. Hardy claimed self-defense and was acquitted of murder—although he was convicted of possessing an unlicensed firearm and put on probation.
Soon enough, Lloyd began taunting Hann’s family online, bragging about how he got away with murder and writing that he shot her “just to watch her die.”
This year, Lloyd began referring to himself as “The Wolf,” informing the world that he is no longer a neo-Nazi, but an “anti-American terrorist.”
When anti-government extremist Richard Poplawski allegedly gunned down three Pittsburgh police officers on April 4, Lloyd celebrated their deaths, calling police “the front-line troops against the people."
That may have been one loudmouth comment too many for Hardy Lloyd. He was arrested last week at his Crafton, Pa., apartment for violating the terms of his probation, which prohibit him from possessing firearms, among other conditions.
It’s unclear at this point why exactly Lloyd was arrested, although Pennsylvania law enforcement sources told Hatewatch that Lloyd’s rants have earned him a slot on a domestic terrorism watch list and that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recently warned local law enforcement that Lloyd was openly calling for the murder of police officers.
