This guy, this "victim" was a Klan leader. He once led one of the most vicious hate groups in the country. He could have been killed for all I care. His son should have taken it a step farther and put his old man out of his misery. Why treat this [email protected] as an innocent victim when he has proabably committed more hate crimes than you can shake a stick at?

Would you feel the same way if the victim was a leader of a minority hate group, such as the Black Panthers? I doubt it...

What a dumb-a**ed article. Of more importance to the current crime is the reason for son to strike father, not dragging up old stories about why father was arrested 6 years ago. Did the son just now find out about dad's KKK background? That would certainly explain a lot. I guess we will never know.

Equal rights groups are a little bit different that oppressive hate groups...

I agree with you totally. The only reason the story even hit the paper is the fact dad had been a KKK member. Again the media keeps things stirred up. Remember the old saying, the more you stir it, the worse it smells!

Yeah, why does the story not tell why the son attacked his father? Hello? I'm sure there was some sort of motive..... do they not have a clue?

A crime is a crime, regardless of the victims beliefs.

I don't understand why so many people don't understand that.

What a thoughtful post!

Love the last two words-- "So Smart"

Redneck Vet sure as hell is not "so smart".

If this country is such a "cess pool" you should find some place better to live.

I doubt that you are a "vet" but just using that word to make yourself more important.

This article does not tell the whole story. I went to school with the son that assaulted his father. The father (former self proclaimed leader) had been outspoken AGAINST the KKK after his release from prison and his son, Anthony (the one pleading guilty to assault) is/was trying to re-recruit in the Dekalb county area. His father was fighting with the young people that he had assembled and this is when he assaulted his father. The star needs to add all of the events to their reports. I am on neither side, just feel that people should know the whole story. It is quite longer than this brief synopsis. It was sad growing up in this community and having to deal with the hatred that the elder Berry destowed us with, but at least he had changed his views and was trying to show others that hate is not going to be accepted.

Wow...no wonder the US is such a "cess pool" today. I can't believe there are still people in this "civilized society" (term used loosely) that think like this. I am saddened. Don't you know that God created us all and loves us all equally? Men and Women, Whites and Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans etc...we all deserve the same respect, and likewise, we all create the same amount of trouble. There are just as many white people who wreak havoc on this earth as there are in other races. Come on people...let's get smart about this and respect each other.

Here is a link to an article in the Evening Star out of Auburn Indiana. I am not sure if they will allow you to read, I think that you may need a subscription, but it tells the story with much more accuracy.

I think your comment speak of your ignorance. Stay in your trailer park. One other fact. The Black Panther group was not a hate group. They stood for equal protection and the right to defend yourself, including against racist police that were beating black people for enjoyment and falsely accusing them of crimes. This is very different from the KKK that run solely on hate.

I don't agree with violence to anyone, including KKK scum. This story is very confusing. Why would the son punch his father while he is fighting another man? Maybe it was his lover. I heard KKK and Skinhead members are butt splitters. Maybe that is why they hide behind sheets and love black leather.

Thank-you for your brilliant analysis. Your use of all caps goes a long way in showcasing your ignorance. Your post carries all the weight of a deaf man's review of a concert.

I don't think you are a fool after reading your post, but what's my opinion compared to that of thousands of others? Clearly, the full area of your ignorance is not yet mapped. We are presently only exploring the fringes of that vast expanse. However, I'll consider letting you have the last word if you guarantee it will be your last. To quote Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

Now, if you care to apologize for wasting my shamefully wasted time, I'll consider accepting it.

The son is an idiot...who does he get-in with at prison? I guess the blacks cause the Arians definetly aint lettin him in.

The most interesting part of the story is a son repeatedly punching his father in the head after his father was going to get in a fight...not his father being a white trash redneck that had a buncha homo's with shaved heads over thinking they were a gang in their shed attached to their trailer-home
