Olsen, who frequented an online forum, reportedly posted about his ideations of violence on a frequent basis.
According to a report by the Washington Post, Olsen allegedly “praised the Oklahoma City bombing, mass shootings, and attacks on Planned Parenthood.”

“Don’t comply with gun laws, stock up on stuff they could ban,” he reportedly wrote in another posting. Another posting seemed to reveal a desire to effect political change through violence.
