"The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country", read a motion for detention filed in the U.S. District Court in Maryland.

"I am dreaming of a way to kill nearly every last person on the earth", Hasson wrote in a draft email in June 2017, according to court documents released on Wednesday.

Hasson is due in court Thursday, where prosecutors will argue that he's too unsafe to be released before trial.

In arguing against bail Thursday, federal prosecutor Jennifer Sykes said Hasson would log onto his government computer during work and spend hours searching for information on such people as the Unabomber, the Virginia Tech gunman and anti-abortion bomber Eric Rudolph.

The filing notes many examples of his activities, which stretch back for years and include a draft letter to a prominent neo-Nazi leader and a draft email from 2017 that detailed his musings over a campaign of bioterrorist attacks on food supplies and the merits of a "bombing/sniper campaign". Officials with the USA attorney's office in Maryland outlined in court documents Hasson's alleged plans to spark chaos and destruction, describing a man obsessed with neo-fascist and neo-Nazi views.

Hasson, a lieutenant in the US Coast Guard, has been working at Coast Guard headquarters in Washington since 2016 as an acquisitions officer, according to prosecutors.
