Murder Trial Of The Son Of Late NSM Activist Jeff Hall To Begin In Riverside, California

Update January 14th 2013: Joseph Hall found guilty of second-degree murder by Riverside Superior Court Judge Jean Leonard, who ruled that Hall deliberated killed his father Jeff Hall, but rejected prosecution arguments that it was premeditated. He will be sentenced on February 15th. Updated post HERE.

R.I.P. Jeff Hall, 1979-2011 (in the foreground with megaphone)

The murder trial of the son of the late National Socialist Movement (NSM) activist Jeff Hall is scheduled to begin on Tuesday October 30th, 2012. The 12-year-old boy, now identified as Joseph Hall (although the AP refuses to identify him because of his age), is accused of deliberately shooting his father at the family’s Riverside home on May 1st, 2011; on May 4th, he was charged with one count of murder and one count of using a gun in the commission of a murder. He has been found mentally competent to stand trial. However, prosecutors say the boy’s exposure to white racialist culture probably won’t play a big role at trial. At the time of the murder, Hall was the NSM's Southwestern States Regional Director, and had run unsuccessfully for the Division 2 seat of the Western Municipal Water District Board in Riverside County in November 2010.

After his arrest, the boy told investigators he went downstairs and shot his father before returning upstairs and hiding the gun under his bed, according to court documents. The boy told authorities he thought his father was going to leave his stepmother, and he didn't want the family to split up. He also told authorities that he was abused by his father and was bullied at home and at school, so he killed his father to stop the abuse and to keep the rest of the family together. Court documents also reveal that the boy had been prone to violent outbursts, which predated his father's involvement with the NSM. The boy is the product of Hall's previous marriage to Leticia Neal; she and Hall had squabbled over custody for 10 years since their divorce and accused each other of child abuse. However, there was no substantiation that Hall, who had been granted full custody, had abused the boy.

During the first hearing on Monday October 29th, Judge Jean Leonard granted the defense attorney’s request to have Joseph's hands and legs unshackled during trial. Opening statements by both prosecution and defense will begin on Tuesday; the trial is expected to last two weeks. The Times of India published a surprisingly cogent analysis; they opine that the two sides are likely to differ on both the events that preceded the shooting and Joseph's exact motive, elements complicated by his age and the fact that his father, Jeff Hall, was a neo-Nazi. They note that those facts raise several more philosophical quandaries that, depending on how the judge weighs the answers, may determine the outcome of the trial. Among them: whether racialism can amount to parental abuse, whether a child exposed to such a philosophy can understand the difference between right and wrong, and whether someone who grows up in such toxic circumstances can be blamed for wanting a way out.

If convicted, Joseph Hall could remain in custody until the age of 25, providing he doesn’t commit any crimes while incarcerated. The story is receiving considerable national and international coverage, with reports published by The Independent and News-com.au, which mistakenly published a picture of the late J.T. Ready.



Tuesday October 30th: Opening statements: Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Soccio said the boy told police that he wanted to stop his father from physically abusing him, his stepmom Krista McCrary and his younger siblings, and that he feared his parents would divorce and his dad would have custody of him and his sister. Soccio said that Jeff Hall tried his best to raise an emotionally unstable child prone to violent outbursts who once tried to strangle a teacher with a telephone cord. He also said the boy did not kill has dad because he was a white supremacist, and that it didn’t matter if Hall was a neo-Nazi or a member of the Peace and Freedom Party.

In his opening statement, public defender Matthew Hardy said Joseph Hall told an investigator after the shooting that his mother told him to kill his dad, and that she gave him the gun. Hardy claimed McCrary, who is expected to testify, goaded the boy into killing Hall because Hall was planning to leave her for another woman. Hall sent her text messages on the night he was shot saying he would divorce her. Hardy also said that McCrary sat in on the child's interviews with police and psychiatrists after the shooting and lied to investigators.

Odd that the Times of India covered this. Anyway, regardless of how you feel about the NSM, (I am not too "fond" of them,to put it mildly, the picture of Hall with his associates sums it up for me)this is very tragic, very sad. As was the JT Ready incident.

I for one refuse to believe that the "White racialist culture" issue won't be a major factor in the trial. That particular "stigma" is extremely diifcult to keep on the margins, or be viewed as a minor issue.

Let's keep in mind that the FAMILY is a cornerstone of our struggle. Not just White people having more children, which we BADLY need, but raising the kids right. Having a positive atmosphere at home, a strong family bond, an environment that will produce children that will be smart, capable and well adjusted. Believe me, I know it can be damn hard to do, but without enough good families to give our children a good start, we are badly damaging our future.

In all honesty, if a White MAN (or woman) can't run a stable household and have peace in the family, can we expect it to be much different for them in the political arena?

I agree with the poster at 11:23. It does take a stable man at home to be a stable man at politics. I think genetics has more to do with it than anything. The child was from a bad seed, apparently more from the mother, and acted accordingly. Take Rocky Sahyada of the American Nazi party. He has two severely retarded sons. You can tell by reading what he writes on this blog that he isn't right in the head. For example, he thinks the rules that apply to others such as treason and race mixing doesn't apply to him. This is why adopted children have so many problems. Poor genetics was the whole reason their parents abandoned them to start with.

No, Mr. "Honorable Sidney Greenstreet-Gilmore", my two boys aren't "retarded' - they are AUTISTIC, and there is a big difference, which you might understand if YOU weren't perhaps a little bit slow yourself. Since you happen to be one of those who lurk far off in the shadows, 'hiding in the closet' pontification as it were, we don't KNOW ANYTHING about yourself, do we? You COULD be, well just about "anything" couldn't you? One thing we DO know. YOUR a COWARD who trys to attack a person through his children. Surely NOT a National Socialist attribute, "orthodox" or otherwise. In fact, the ONLY "orthodox" thing I figure about yourself, is that your perhaps "orthodox" of the KOSHER variety!

If attacking a mans white children or somebody not being stupid enough to do anything to end up in prison is all you have, then thats the definition of grasping at straws. At least Rock takes care of his family and not abandons a gaggle of fatherless bastards across the country. By any standard thats strictly a nonwhite trait. The rest is the usual unfounded smears.

How does Rocky believe in "treason and race mixing"? He has been loyal to his family and the struggle his entire life. None of his children have shot him in the head. Perhaps because they know that he loves them, doesn't abuse them, and provides a good home for them. Why is it that whenever some NSM cretin, has problems in their family situations, that its always someone else's fault? The article said that Jeff Hall used to kick his little boy in the ass. Is that proper behavior for a father? Lets not even go to Jeff Schoep, he simply abandons his kids...

Its probably "news" in India, because some supposed "neo-nazi" killed all those Indians in that temple shooting a short while ago. You see this NSM style publicity has a far reach, tarring WN world-wide as nits and kooks! Thanks NSM!

This is just so LOW. To say that about Rocky's CHILDREN. Who not only are not "retarded" but they have nothing to do with the discussion at hand.

I can't imagine all the CRAP Rocky has put up with over the 40+ years he's been in this whole scene. Kinda amazing that he still sticks with it and keeps going. Guess he must be driven by something more than "money" "publicity" "entertain-ment" "ego boosting" etc.

I don't agree with the poster bringing Rocky's children up. But I will say that Rocky is a piece of shit who has gone after families, wives, girlfriends, you name it. Even now we see him repeatedly attacking the murdered Jeff Hall simply because he was a white activist who didn't fall for Rocky's BS. It is disgusting at best. I don't think anyone's kids should be attacked but there should be almost no holds bared with that human garbage. It is high time people started speaking out against scum like him.

Rocky probably wrote that stab at himself as a cry for attention. You make fun of other white by bringing their kids into scenarios non stop. Hypocrite?

Has everyone seen the Bowles blog lately? ANOTHER RACE-MIXER in the NSM! This time its the head of the NSM "SS", Duke Schnieder who was married to a NIGGER. And guess what? Schoep has thrown him out for RACE-MIXING! Now thats the pot calling the kettle black. LOL

Anonymous said...

So the NSM apparently has ANOTHER race-mixing scandal within their officer corps! This time its Mr. NoNeck 'SS' junior kommander Duke Schnieder. Yes, there IS a wedding photo which will be coming soon (a BIG black negress). Funny isn't it, that the more NSM implodes, the more crap comes out about them, as former members who have had more than enough, start to reveal the facts that they have kept hidden out of some misguided sense of loyalty to kommander pronounced POOP. NSM has to be the worst collecton of misfits that this movement has ever seen! Even the hollywood jews couldn't come up with half this stuff!

When will all this stuff coming out about the NSM and Jeff Schoep end? This outfit is a disgrace.

I like what Bowles does. Lowers the WHAM on the creatures. lol

Its unbelieveable, the kind of degenerates that Jeff Schoep has managed to collect together in one sorry group. If I was watching some program on the jew-tube that bashes "neo nazis", like they love to do, and they portrayed them per the actuality of the NSM, I would be forced to laugh my ass off, with their over-kill. Sadly, this bunch is even worse than what the jew scriptwriters could come up with. Time for SCHOEP and his dwindling, motley band of misfits to be flushed from the scene. Some decent skins ought to give Jeffy boy a good old fashioned boot party!

I feel so sorry for that little boy. His father must have been a real frigging monster. No wonder he was the leader of the west coast NSM, he was perfect following in his kommanders footsteps. Why are all these NSM types such pieces of human waste? No, I'm not being nasty, just read over the past months of this blog. This group is a disgrace!

A.A. You need to give Bowles an award for exposing these freaks.

What gets me is the other brothers and sisters knew beforehand that their daddy was going to be shot and did nothing about it. That tells me they all had enough of his abuse and laziness. They probably danced in a circle and held hands when he was dead. Ding-dong-the-witch-is-dead. lol

If this is the leadership of the NSM, Schoep, Hall, Ready, Schnieder, what can the basic quality of the membership be like?
