                  "Los Angeles Neo-Nazi Update

   A number of racists belonging to the Los Angeles-based Fourth Reich
   Skinheads pled guilty to a variety of charges relating to bombings
   and conspiracies to deny civil rights. Christopher David Fasher,
   the leader of the Fourth Reich Skinheads pled guilty in mid-October
   to conspiracy and other charges related to a planned attack on a
   African-American church in the area. Fisher pled guilty to one
   count of conspiracy and one count of exploding a pipe bomb at a
   Paramount, California house. A variety of charges were dropped in
   the plea agreement, which includes a diversionary program and a
   recommendation of a 10 year prison term. Fisher expressed regret at
   the bombings and the planned bombing of the First AME church in Los
   Angeles.

   Carl Daniel Boese, a juvenile accomplice of Fisher's, pled guilty
   to conspiracy and of attacking the Temple Beth David Synagogue in
   Westminster, California. Boese and Fisher were the only Fourth
   Reich Skinheads to face Federal charges following the
   highly-publicised FBI investigation into neo-Nazi networks in
   California. Speculation continues as to whether the FBI's main
   informant, Joe Allen, was exposed by racists and the investigation
   aborted. Allen was an ordained minister in the neo-nazi Church of
   the Creator.

   A racist weapons dealer, Christian Nadal was convicted in early
   October, 1993 on 15 counts of selling and transferring illegal
   weapons, while his wife, Doris Nadal, was convicted on a single
   conspiracy charge. A _Los Angeles Times_ article (October 2, 1993)
   reported that 'Nazi literature and paraphernalia' and a 'framed
   photograph of Adolf Hitler' were discovered in one room of the
   Nadal house. Testimony by the prosecution was also entered that
   Christian Nadal wanted to make grenades and use atomic weapons to
   force minorities to leave the country. The defense attempted to
   make entrapment an issue, as both Joe Allen and FBI agent
   Michael E. German, posing as white supremacists, were sold weapons
   by the Nadals. A co-defendent of the Nadals, Christopher Berwick,
   pled guilty in September 1993 to conspiring to manufacture and sell
   illegal weapons.

   Papers filed by the prosecution included a letter written by an
   unidentified juvenile outlining the Fourth Reich Skinhead's
   ideological identification with Tom Metzger's neo-Nazi group,
   California-based White Aryan Resistance (WAR). The letter reads in
   part:

      The White Aryan Resistance [considers] any man or group who
      opposes the healthy defense of ones Aryanhood to be in the
      contempt of Natural Law and contrary to the goals of Nature and
      Aryan advancement. The guilty are sentenced to wear Piano Wire
      Neck Ties... You have been judged GUILTY by the Orange County
      Chapter of WAR... We look forward to meeting you in persons and
      discussing an obvious difference of opinion."

   The Dignity Report, March 1, 1994, Vol. 2/No. 3.
