(Newser) – A leading white supremacist has been shot to death at his California home and his 10-year-old son has been booked on suspicion of homicide. Jeff Russell Hall, 32, was the regional director of the National Socialist Movement and came to national attention last year when he ran for a post on the local water board. The son was taken into custody after police interviewed Hall's wife and four other children, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Police say the shooting was intentional, but a motive hasn't been determined, reports the Daily Bulletin. Neighbors complain they were verbally abused and felt threatened by the family, who held a Halloween party last year where a swastika flag was flown from the house and guests wore KKK hoods. "Honestly, I feel like it's over," Juan Trejo, who lives across the street from Hall's home, tells the Press-Enterprise. "It was scary here. Hopefully, we'll never see any of them again."

@Fascist Jack, HAH, there is a lot you don't know about these people. I live here in SoCal and I know a lot of those people in that NSM group unfortunately. Take a look at the pictures of them when they rallied at Claremont, I know the entire front row personally and here's what you don't know. They're all heroin addicts!!! Yes, that's right, JUNKIES. Straight up scum that inject poison from nations they hate into their disgusting veins. They hate mexicans, but looooove their mud, LOL!!!! Let's see the nation resting on the backs of a bunch of dope addicts, hahahahhahahahahhaaaaa yeah right.

"“I want a white society,” Mr. Hall said. “I believe in secession. I believe in giving my life for secession.” Although I'm an AfrAmerican man, I have to admire the departed Mr. Hall's honesty. He was expressing what millions of "white" men and women actually feel and think. I hear Pat Buchanan, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and a number of their Repugnican cohorts say thinly-disguised versions of the same thing every day. The only problem is: They're living in the wrong country. They should move to any of probably hundreds of places on earth where the population is, for all practical purposes, all white. But that's not US. "Colored" people, for better and worse, built this aspiring democracy. So did women, gays, Hispanics, Asian, and other hyphenated Americans. And it's time the so-called leadership of this nation made it perfectly clear that not only is this not a "White Man's Country", it never was. Right?
