New Jersey Man Found In Possession Of 'N****r Owner's Manual', Semi-Automatic Weapon And Drugs
He faces life in prison for all the drugs and guns.
When a New Jersey man crashed his van, police officers discovered weapons and racist paraphernalia.
The wreck happened when Joseph Rubino lost control of his van and crashed into a tree, according to Buzzfeed. As first responders pulled him from the wreckage, they noticed guns and ammunition in the vehicle.
According to court documents, law enforcement seized numerous rounds of ammunition and several weapons including a semi-automatic assault handgun, a 9mm semi-automatic assault pistol fitted with a high-capacity magazine and a loaded Smith & Wesson pistol.

The New Jersey Herald reported police obtained a search warrant for Rubino’s home and found 18 weapons. The artillery included a grenade launcher and assault rifles. He also had body armor and silencers in the house.
Crystal meth and various forms of marijuana were also found during the search.
Literature and other paraphernalia in the house confirmed Rubino was a white supremacist. He had clothing and stickers with neo-Nazi symbols. He also possessed a manual titled, "N****r Owner’s Manual," which instructs the reader on how to enslave Black people. It is unclear if Rubino was planning an attack.
He is facing 16 state charges in Sussex County and seven in Warren County, but they might be dropped because the federal government filed its own set of charges in district court on August 9.
Rubino’s federal charges include possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
Prior to this arrest, his criminal history consisted of a conviction for writing bad checks in 1999. He was sentenced to three years of probation.
If Rubino is found guilty of the federal charges, he faces life in prison for the drug trafficking charge alone, according to The Washington Post.
Rubino will appear in court on September 5 and September 9 in Warren and Sussex Counties. The date of his first federal court date is unknown.
