Formal sentencing is scheduled Nov. 10 before Judge Kelly Ryan, who will make the final decision to enforce the jury’s findings.
Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. stood, shouted out “Sig Heil” and gave the Nazi salute, which was his reaction to his capital murder conviction last week when he remained seated.
A dedicated Nazi, Frazier Glenn Miller used his trial to promulgate the Nazi cause. Acting as his own defense attorney, the media manipulator introduced anti-Semite materials, videos, witnesses, and made outrageous statements which he knew the major media covering the trial would pick up and use. Many of his statements were self-incriminatory such as “I wanted to kill as many Jews as I could.” “Every man wants to die a hero and be remembered for his contributions.” “How many did I get?” Killing the 14 year-old wouldn’t have bothered him if he had been Jewish. The Christians should have known better than associate with Jews.
A former Green Beret, Miller who was 73 when he carried out this paramilitary mission, was a prime example of why old men send young men to war. Miller, who wanted to kill Jews at the Jewish Community Center and the Jewish Rest Home in Overland Park, Kansas, last April failed in his mission, got flustered and killed three Christians. He has spent the last year and a high profile trial trying to justify his mistakes.
It is highly doubtful that the Nazi /white supremacist movement will make him a martyr. The former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and founder of the White Patriot Party had already betrayed his comrades by testifying against “The Order” for the federal government almost thirty years ago.
Miller, a resident of Aurora, Mo., said he embarked on this “mission” after learning he had emphysema and not long to live.
Why did he try to kill Jews? His motives are pretty clear. He wanted to reinstate himself with the white supremacist movement.
Miller was convicted and sentenced to death for killing an old man and his 14-year-old grandson attending a talent contest and a middle-aged woman who was visiting a relative at a rest home.
