A neo-Nazi asked to remain in an American prison, saying he did not want to be released until people felt he would not do them any harm. Michael Bloom, 25, was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment in 1994 when he was found with weapons and neo-Nazi paraphernalia. Authorities said Bloom intended to bomb synagogues, churches and anti-discrimination groups. A clemency board recently voted to release Bloom, the leader of the SS Action Group in Arizona, but after Gov. Jane Hull and others objected, the decision will now be reviewed later this month.
