Via Bruce at Mass Backwards, I am relieved to report that Jacob Robida, the teenage Massachusetts Nazi accused of attacking and nearly killing three people in a New Bedford, Massachusetts gay bar is in custody in Arkansas.
After the attack, Robida apparently drove to Charleston, West Virginia, where he picked up one Jennifer Bailey, a woman he had known prior. They traveled west, where they were pulled over by a local police officer in Arkansas. Robida allegedly shot and killed Officer Jim Sell of Gassville, Arkansas, then fled. He was later stopped by police, and a shootout ensued. Robida was critically wounded. Bailey is dead, but police say Robida killed her before the shootout.
The one consolation in this whole case is that the likelihood of Robida returning to Massachusetts for trial is minimal. He allegedly killed a police officer in Arkansas, and unlike the fine, enlightened, civilized, refined, cultured, nuance-appreciationg folks of the Bay State, Arkansans still have the death penalty — and use it.
Update: The dirtbag did the states of Arkansas and Massachusetts a favor and croaked.
