Teenager Who Called Prince Harry A 'Race Traitor' Jailed

A teenage neo-Nazi who called Britain's Prince Harry a race traitor months after his marriage to US actress Meghan Markle, and suggested he should be shot, has been jailed for more than four years, the BBC reports.

Michal Szewczuk, 19, posted far-right online propaganda which included an image of Harry, the Duke of Sussex, with a gun to his head and the caption "See Ya Later Race Traitor".

It was posted months after Harry's wedding to Meghan, whose mother is African American.

Szewczuk and his co-defendant Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18, both Polish nationals, pleaded guilty to encouraging terrorism and Szewczuk also admitted five counts of possessing material likely to be useful to someone planning a terrorist act.

Detective Chief Superintendent Martin Snowden said the pair clearly saw themselves as superior to most of society and felt a duty to teach others their beliefs.

"The considerable amount of material they have posted on social media channels not only reflects their extremist beliefs but was intended to encourage others to carry out despicable acts," he said.

Szewczuk was jailed for four years and three months while Dunn-Koczorowski was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
