Neo-Nazi killed by 10 year old son. He had custody of his kids. How did that happen?

Asked by skfinkel (13478points) May 10th, 2011

Who decided that this Neo-Nazi, preaching hate and bigotry, would be the best parent? His 10 year old son is now a murderer. I would like to know what the wife was like, or did he just have more money for better lawyers? Who is watching our children????

Mr. Hall, who led a chapter of the group in Riverside, Calif., east of Los Angeles, had predicted that his political activities — in a world rife with hatred, suspicion and violence — would lead to his demise.

“I want a white society,” Mr. Hall said. “I believe in secession. I believe in giving my life for secession.”

Dang! Looks like he got what he asked for. How lucky is that?

Because he probably cleaned up for court. If he ever went. Children aren’t taken away from their parents just because they’re nuts. They’re only taken if they’re nuts and a danger specifically to the children most times.

Children aren’t even taken away when they are a danger to the children. My abusive brother-in-law still has 50% custody and time with my niece, even though he was convicted of felony child abuse against his son from a previous marriage. The court’s reasoning: there is no proof that he is a danger to his daughter even though he beat both of his wives and his son. After all, he did complete an anger management course. effin courts

Not that I agree for one second with the father in this scenario.. but if the court were to go around taking children away from parents because of their beliefs, I might have a problem with that. If the court had no reason to believe the child was in danger with his father, then his beliefs shouldn’t be a sole reason to deny custody.
I would also venture a guess that the mother was involved with the same movement. People who hold such extreme and hateful views tend to stick together.
