This scumbag dying of natural causes while on Death Row for killing three people in a mass shooting in 2014 is one hell of a testament to the fact that he always decided how his life was going to go, no matter how much damage he did to the rest of the world. Still he never made his life matter the way he wanted it to, and that’s a good thing.
Fraizer Glenn Miller was right proud of himself as he was convicted of the April 2014 mass shootings at two Jewish sites in Overland Park, Kansas where three persons were killed. Just before the jury convicted him, he told them he wanted to “die as a martyr,” and as they left after the verdict was read, Miller gave them a Nazi salute which prompted the judge to admonish him. Miller said he was disappointed and the verdict ruined his day, reports the station. The fact that his victims were not even Jewish, which ultimately makes the onetime paramilitary Klan leader who would later turn federal informant nothing more than a rabid, dangerous sociopath who should have been stopped long before that tragic day.
Miller, 80, died Tuesday natural causes in prison as he sat on Death Row for the killings. He was 80 years old.
Miller was a longtime staple in White Supremacist circles, served in the military but in 1979 was forced to leave after his Klan activities became known. He moved to a farm just outside Raleigh, NC and went on to found and lead the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (CKKKK) and the White Patriot Party, two paramilitary organizations in the 1980s.
Miller hoped to create what he called the Carolina Free State, an all-white nation in North and South Carolina, and he had ties to violent organizations from that time such as the Order, the murderous group let by Robert Matthews who went on a murder and robbery spree across the Pacific Northwest until they were neutralized in the early 1980s. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) [https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/individual/frazier-glenn-miller], Miller was given $200,000 in cast by Matthews that was part of the $3.8 million stolen during an armored car robbery in Ukiah, Calif.
The CKKKK held armed rallies that Miller said was inspired by Nazi-era rallies of the 1930s and 1940s. “I would try to emulate Hitler’s methods of attracting members and supporters,” he wrote in his autobiography. “In the years to come, for example, I placed great emphasis on staging marches and rallies. It had been successful with Hitler.” Miller’s organization also mounted campaigns of harassment against Blacks and Jews, whom Miller considered to be his enemies. Add to that the amassing of illegal weapons and paramilitary training of his members often with active duty military personnel, and Miller would soon find himself in criminal and civil legal entanglements for the rest of his life. In 1985, the SPLC reached an consent agreement with Miller that effectively neutralized the CKKKK, but he continued to operate with other persons as he had before and a year later was convicted in federal court of criminal contempt. The SPLC notes that he was out on bond awaiting appeal when he went underground, making a “Declaration of War” calling for “Aryan warriors of The Order” to kill “our enemies,” which included “N—— , White race traitors, Jews, Judges” and then SPLC-leader “Morris Seligman Dees.”
Authorities caught up with him and others in a mobile home in Springfield, MO who after they were tear gassed out found inside automatic weapons, explosives ammunition and $14,000 in cash. Miller pled guilty to a weapons charge and to sending a threat through the mail, serving three years in federal prison. Part of his plea deal was to agree to testify against Aryan Nations Richard Butler, Tom Metzger of White Aryan Resistance and other white supremacist leaders in the 1988 Fort Smith sedition trial, where the fourteen leaders were accused of plotting to overthrow the United States Federal Government and conspiring to assassinate federal officials. All were eventually acquitted of all the charges against them, and Miller was branded as a rat within White supremacist circles.
Under the name “Rounder”, Miller’s posts on the Vanguard News Network forum can still be found. He was a regular poster on the forum, with over 12,000 posts until 2014. News of his death has ranged from celebratory to scorn due to the fact that he still killed White people. In a 2019 White supremacist conference at Montgomery Bell Park Inn, in Burns, TN Rick Tyler waxed poetic about Miller’s paramilitary rallies of the 1980s likening the tragic “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in 2017 to those rallies saying they should be repeated. Tyler is currently facing charges of theft and tax evasion charges in Tennessee.
In March 2008, Miller’s son, Jesse, 30 was killed by a Marionville, Missouri police officer shortly after he killed a man who stopped to offer assistance after a car accident. He shot and wounded the officer prompting the officer to return fire.
