Frazier Glenn Cross, a known white supremacist, is believed to have opened fire Sunday, at The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. After all related gun-fire had come to an end, three people lay dead.
Yesterday, the Johnson County District Attorney announced charges against Cross, also known as Frazier Glenn Miller. The charges are one count of capital murder for the deaths of 14-year-old Reat Underwood and his grandfather, William Corporon, as well as one count of premeditated murder for the death of Terri LeManno.
The racist tendencies of Frazier Glenn Cross were well known in the area of Aurora, where the 73-year-old lived, and were apparently shared with the newly-elected mayor of Marionville, Daniel Clevenger. Clevenger also called Cross a friend and considered him ”friendly” and “respectful”. Speaking to a local ABC affiliate, he said of Cross:
“He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people, you know, he respected his elders greatly. As long as they were the same color as him. Very fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him.
“Kind of agreed with him on some things but, I don’t like to express that too much.
“There some things that are going on in this country that are destroying us. We’ve got a false economy and it’s, some of those corporations are run by Jews because the names are there. The fact that the Federal Reserve prints up phony money and freely hands it out, I think that’s completely wrong. The people that run the Federal Reserve, they’re Jewish.”
The news station managed to dig up a letter, nearly a decade old, that Clevenger had written to the editor of the Aurora Advertiser. In the letter, Clevenger spoke of Cross.
“I am a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings,” wrote Clevenger. “The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State’s workforce.”
“Made a few Jews rich by killin’ us off.”
The letter also mentioned how the “Jew-run government backed banking industry turned the U.S into the world’s largest debtor nation”.
Mayor Clevenger, however, despite sharing the shooter’s anti-Semitic sentiments, doesn’t openly support the actions of Frazier Glenn Cross this past Sunday.
“It was shocking that he would do something like that, but knowing him and how much was built up inside of him, I can understand why he would be the one to do that,” said Clevenger.
“I imagine when he goes to trial, he will be able to really state his views on things, and I think he’s just wanting to go out with a bang.”
He did say that Frazier Glenn Cross had told him he didn’t have long to live and thinks poor health may have contributed to the shooter’s choices.
“He never said anything about it other than his poor health, and he knew he wasn’t going to be living very much longer,” he said. “That might have been something he was talking about. Something like this.”
