Supremacist Said Admits LA Spree


The Associated Press/May 16, 2000

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The white supremacist gunman who allegedly wounded children at a Jewish community center admitted he later killed a Filipino-American postman and said he would kill all nonwhites if he could, the government alleged Tuesday in court papers seeking the death penalty.

Buford O. Furrow Jr. also declared himself to be "at war with the Jewish-controlled federal government" and said he hoped others would emulate his actions of Aug. 10, federal prosecutors said in a motion.

"The defendant explicitly stated that he is not sorry for his crimes," they added in filings submitted to U.S. District Judge Nora Manella.

Prosecutors said that two months after his incarceration last summer, Furrow threatened to kill a Latino prison inmate and guards assigned to his housing unit.

Furrow is charged with killing letter carrier Joseph Ileto just hours after allegedly wounding three boys, a teen-age girl and a woman at the North Valley Jewish Community Center.

Furrow has pleaded innocent, and his team of public defenders has launched an effort to save him from the death penalty. They have argued that the federal death penalty statute is unconstitutional and that the factors presented to justify it in the Furrow case were too vague.

The next hearing on the death penalty issue is scheduled for June 5.
