Suspected Killer Of Sex Offender Published Book Advocating Killing Sex Offenders

Jeremy Moody, the racist skinhead charged along with his wife, Christine Moody, in the murder of a registered sex offender and his wife in Jonesville, South Carolina, on July 21, previously published a book in which he called for the killing of sex offenders.jeremy-moody-book-post

Moody’s 85-page self-published book, Yesterday, Today & Forever, is in most respects a typical white supremacist screed. Its title was borrowed from the name of an album from the Florida-based Oi! band Children of the Reich. 

The book, which Moody claimed “will live on through the ages,” includes sections that deny the Holocaust, that claim whites are more intelligent than non-whites, that engage in 9-11 conspiracy theories, that rail against homosexuality, and that elaborate on Moody’s Christian Identity beliefs.  Christian Identity is a racist and anti-Semitic religious sect that claims that white people are descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel; Moody writes about a future time when “God’s chosen White Adamic men and women” will “attack…Zionist and negro whores.”

But Moody also includes content on another subject, what he terms “the lowest of all the species.”  That subject is “child molesters.”  Indeed, Moody goes so far as to include a special section entitled “Child Abuser (I Seek Your Death).”    He admitted that “this topic does not flow with the overall theme of this book,” but explained that “it’s a topic that I’m passionate about just the same.” 

After taking some time to recite alleged statistics about child abuse in the United States, and asserting that “it is not possible to rehabilitate a child molester,” Moody gets to his proposed “solution” to the problem of sex offenders.  “The only cure for child abusers and molesters,” he proclaims, “is to have every member of their immediate family killed.”  Moody’s rationale for killing not only sex offenders but their families as well is that “these nefarious crimes and people should not be allowed to procreate.”  By destroying the family, asserts Moody, “you purify the bloodline.”  This is the only way, Moody writes, that sex offenders or their families cannot ever hurt children again. 

Anticipating criticism, Moody claimed that his suggestion was not “immature.”  Rather, he wrote, “I think it’s the only answer, and if you don’t agree, then you too should be destroyed.”

Racist Skinhead Couple Arrested For South Carolina Double Homicide

Deputies from the Union County, South Carolina, Sheriff’s Office arrested racist skinheads Jeremy Lee Moody, 30, and Christine Moody, 36, for the alleged murder of a local couple, one of whom was a registered sex offender, on July 21. 

Deputies had found the victims’ bodies two days earlier.  One victim, Charles Parker, the registered sex offender, had gunshot wounds to the neck and chest; his wife Gretchen had a gunshot wound to her chest.  The bodies also had multiple stab wounds.jeremy-and-christine-moody

Law enforcement officials characterized Jeremy Moody as a possible vigilante, reporting that he had told them he had gone to the Parker residence because Charles Parker was a registered sex offender (the names and addresses of registered sex offenders are easily accessible on the Internet).  Jeremy Moody reportedly had intended to kill another sex offender on the day of his arrest. 

Both Moodys had been white supremacists for some time; Moody claimed earlier in 2013 that he had been a skinhead for 16 years.  He sports numerous white supremacist tattoos.  The Anti-Defamation League first became aware of Jeremy Moody in 2010.  At that time, Moody identified himself as a member of Crew 38, a “support group” for the Hammerskins, a large and violent racist skinhead group. 

Around this time, Jeremy Moody also penned an 85-page self-published screed, Yesterday, Today and Forever, explicating his bigoted views about Jews, blacks, homosexuals and others.  Moody sold copies of the book for the symbolically important amount of $14.88 (“14” is a reference to the white supremacist slogan known as the “14 Words,” while “88” is white supremacist code for “Heil Hitler”).

Both he and his wife Christine frequently adopted the last name of “Mengele” in their on-line postings; Josef Mengele was the infamous Nazi doctor who performed medical experiments at Auschwitz.  Both Moodys had a history of making racist comments that often resulted in the subsequent deletion of on-line profiles they had created.  In comments on a Facebook profile, they also both expressed a love of the popular television show Dexter, about a serial killer who engages in vigilante-style killings of other murderers.

In early June 2013, the Moodys joined a new racist skinhead group, Die Auserwahlten Skins, created by a disenchanted member of another white supremacist group, the Aryan Terror Brigade, in early 2013.  As of January 2013, the group claimed some 25-30 members around the country. 

The Moodys expressed interest in creating a South Carolina branch of the Auserwalhten Skins.  Christine Moody took on the role of a recruiter for the group, though she complained in late June that it was hard to find recruits “when all the white bitches down here have fu–ed ni—rs and the men are all a bunch of drug addicts.”  Ironically, both Moodys were arrested in 2012 on narcotics distribution charges.

Idaho White Supremacist Wounds Two Deputies in Shootout

Kyle Alan Batt, a 27-year-old white supremacist from Caldwell, Idaho, remains hospitalized following a shootout on October 23 in which Batt allegedly shot two Canyon County deputies searching for him in connection with an aggravated assault investigation. The shootings are the latest in a string of nearly 30 shootouts between police and domestic extremists in the United States since 2009.

The incident began earlier in the day when Batt allegedly appeared at the home of a woman with whom he had been having a relationship. Batt reportedly carried a firearm and made threats at the woman. The woman called Caldwell police, but Batt had already left the scene when officers arrived.

Later, five Canyon County sheriff’s deputies went to a residence in Caldwell looking for Batt.  Batt allegedly opened fire at the officers as they approached the house, hitting two of them before fleeing. One officer was able to return fire and hit Batt before he fled. A few hours later, deputies found Batt hiding in a nearby garage, at which point he reportedly tried to take his own life by shooting himself.

One of the two wounded deputies remains in serious condition; the other was treated and released with only minor injuries. Batt was listed in critical condition.

Batt has a long criminal history, including several drug convictions. He is also a white supremacist with a large “white power” tattoo stretched across his breastbone. He has connections with other white supremacists in the Nampa-Boise area, including members of the Hammerskins racist skinhead group. The Hammerskins’ presence in this area has significantly increased in recent years and the Hammerskins held their 2012 “Hammerfest,” the group’s annual large white power music concert, in the Nampa-Boise area on October 6, less than a couple of weeks before the shootout.

Among the 100+ attendees at the Boise Hammerfest was Brent Rackley, the bandmate of Hammerskin Wade Page, who killed six people and injured more during a shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in August 2012. It is not known if Batt attended Hammerfest.
