The white man who shot and killed two black bystanders in Massachusetts last month was 'fueled by white supremacy,' the Suffolk County District Attorney said.
Nathan Allen, 28, stole a large box truck before slamming into another car and a home in Winthrop before his violent rampage in which he shot dead a black Air Force veteran and a retired black state trooper.
David Green, a 58-year-old retired Massachusetts State Police trooper, and Romana Cooper, a 60-year-old Air Force veteran, were killed in the horrific attack. Allen was then shot by police and was taken to a local hospital where he died.
Rachael Rollins, the Suffolk County District Attorney, said in a press release on Wednesday that journals recovered from his apartment showed how he was 'fueled by white supremacy.'
'Nathan Allen had two weapons with him on June 26th, a .9mm caliber semi-automatic pistol and a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol. In addition to his weapons, he also carried hate fueled by white supremacy,' the press release reads.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Good on paper: Nathan Allen's social media posts portrayed him as a loving husband to his newlywed wife, Audrey (pictured on their wedding day last September), a healthcare professional and an animal lover. Police say he shot dead two black bystanders in cold blood

On his social media, Allen cultivated an image of a mild-manner healthcare professional who was in love with his newlywed wife, cared for rabbits and enjoyed European travel.
However, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office has released excerpts of Allen's journals, including one in which he wrote: 'White people are the worlds apex predators.'
He also wrote how 'the white race is superior' and how 'whites in the USA are waking up' to the 'fact' that black people 'know they are inferior to us.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
'Blacks are f**king losers. All of them,' he wrote.
In a different notebook, he drew two swastikas and wrote: 'Whites will play the knockout game with n*gs. All its gonna take is a lil nudge, then whites in the US will snap and kill all the s**tskins.'
'It's in our blood. Its nature. Racism is good. Natural. Killing s**tskins is in our blood. We need to do it. We are apex predators,' he continued.
Less than 48 hours before Allen shot and killed Staff Sergeant Cooper and Trooper Green, he penned an entry into a notebook he called 'The Allen Diaries.'
In that entry, Allen wrote: 'I remember the first black I ever hated…Darrell or…Some f**king r**arded monkey n**ger name. A f**king smelly violent r**ard. I can see it immediately. 1,000,000 yrs. of evolution molded me to hate these subhumans.'
Two pages later in 'The Allen Diaries,' he wrote: 'Through middle and high school I met n**ger after n**ger that was just f**king terrible to be around. I'm done. They f**king suck.'
He then wrote how 'racism is healthy and natural' and how 'holding it in is bad for you' while the final page of his diary reads 'Jesus Christ I hate n**gers.'
Allen wrote that he hoped he could turn his newlywed wife, Audrey, 'to the truth.'
In his diary entries, Allen also made misogynistic entries writing that 'women do not understand men' and 'men need to kill things.'
One of the victims was David Green, 58, a retired Massachusetts state trooper who served for 36 years and was described as the 'quintessential pro.' The second victim was Ramona Cooper, 60, a retired Air Force staff sergeant
Rollins said that the Allen family is 'devastated' by the deaths and have met with investigators and cooperated 'at each turn.' Members of the Allen family who have cooperated include his parents and sibling, his wife Audrey, and her parents.
'We would not have had immediate access to all of the information we do now without their full cooperation. Further, there has been no indication or evidence that the Allen family was aware of Nathan's intent or apparent ideologies,' Rollins said.
'They have stated that they denounce any form of hatred or racism and request privacy during this difficult time. All three of these families – the Coopers, the Greens, and the Allens - are survivors of homicide, and my office will provide resources and assistance in whatever way we can for them.'
During the rampage, Allen walked past several other people who were not black and didn't harm them, Rollins said during a recent press conference.
'We are learning more every day, but I am confident saying that there was hate in this man's heart,' Rollins told reporters.
The district attorney added that investigators believe Allen acted alone, but they are still trying to determine when and how he became radicalized.
Allen's Facebook page mostly contains pictures of him with his wife, Audrey, from their travels in Vienna, Venice and Rome, as well as posts about adopting rabbits, as the couple had a pet rabbit of their own named Sigmund.
The two met at the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth, where they graduated in 2014. They attended the university at the same time as convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev. Their class had nearly 1,600 students, and it is not known if Allen and Tsarnaev knew each other.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Allen went on to earn a doctorate in physical therapy from MGH Institute of Health Professions in 2020 and previously worked as a caregiver at a nursing home, and a rehabilitation technician.
