To the surprise of no one with a half decent level of intelligence white supremacist materials were found in the home of 14-year-old Brandon McInerney. McInerney is accused of shooting and killing openly gay student 15-year-old Lawrence (Larry) King at E.O. Green Middle school.
McInerney’s lawyer claims it was just material from studying about WW II in school. However, prosecutors contend that the material written by McInerney contained the number 88 which is code used by white supremacists for ‘Heil Hitler’ since H is the 8th letter of the alphabet. The material also contained references to the ’14 Words’. Neither of those symbols were ever used by Nazi Germany and were created by more modern white supremacists.
These materials are what prosecutors used in part to establish hate crime charges against McInerney.
