In court filings this week, prosecutors accused white supremacist Christopher Hasson of planning "to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country." Hasson is only charged with drug and weapons offenses. But the court filings this week argue to keep him behind bars until trial, on the grounds that he is a domestic terrorist who poses an immediate threat to human life.
