Russian neo-Nazi who tortured gay youth arrested in Cuba

Late last year, neo-Nazi Maxim Sergeyevich Martsinkevich was terrorizing young gay men in Russia with his group Occupy Pedophilia. Martsinkevich would lure the men with promises of sex, only to torture and humiliate them, record the whole thing and upload the video to the internet. You know, just documenting the crime for everyone to see.

Nazis are not that smart, as it turns out.

Well, good news! After Martsinkevich fled to Cuba to duck those pesky assault charges — which he blogged about because once again: Nazis? Not too bright — he's been arrested by Cuban law enforcement and his assets have been seized as evidence.

According to LGBTQ Nation, the arrest took place Jan 17, and an "Interpol 'wanted' arrest and detention warrant was served on Maxim Sergeyevich Martsinkevich in a raid on a central Havana hotel room where he was determined to be residing.”

They also say that “a laptop computer, mobile phone, and other equipment belonging to Martsinkevich was seized as evidence.”

Of course, this raises numerous questions: What part of your soul has to die before you start torturing queer youth for shits and giggles? What logic loops must you jump through before homosexuality and pedophilia become one and the same? And what would possess you to put it all on the internet for everyone to see knowing full well they can track you down in no time?

Wow, Nazis really are shit-for-brains, huh?
