White Supremacist Pleads Guilty
White supremacist Buford O. Furrow Jr., who admitted to killing a Filipino-American postman and opening fire in a Los Angeles Jewish community center filled with children in August of 1999, agreed, under a plea agreement, to plead guilty to federal hate-crime charges in court on Wednesday, said U.S. Attorney spokesman Thom Mrozek. He did not discuss details of the agreement, but it is being reported that Furrow agreed to plead guilty to all 16 counts against him and accept life imprisonment rather than face the death penalty. His public defenders negotiated the deal and depicted him as psychotic, reports the Associated Press.
