“The alleged abuser has prioritized creating a comprehensive ‘how-to’ guide for would-be attackers, including advice on strengthening opportunities for maximum casualties and optimizing personal defense,” indicates the newsletter.
The bulletin comes several months after 10 people were killed in what authorities say was a racially motivated attack at Tops Friendly Market May 14.
CBS News first reported the bulletin.
The 180-page document, which the bulletin calls a manifesto, includes a breakdown of the weapons, ammunition and equipment considered in planning the attack and a cost-benefit analysis of using selected materials, the bulletin said.
About 100 pages of the document provide recommendations on specific tactics and procedures “aimed at maximizing casualties,” according to the bulletin.
Given the concern, the bulletin urges state and local authorities and the private sector to report suspicious activity “promptly”, asking them to be on the lookout for such things as the increased circulation of guidance documents from attacker and the unusual purchase of military-style tactical equipment. .
