Police have learned a lot about Wade Michael Page since he walked into a Sikh temple in Wisconsin earlier this month and shot six worshipers before turning the gun on himself.
He was a member of the far-right punk band "End Apathy," a group, "bent on carrying out acts of neo-Nazi violence," according to the L.A. Times.
The 40-year-old ex-Army soldier had a deep hatred toward the non-white community and a history of violence.
Once, in an interview, he said, "Sometimes a savage beating is necessary, violence plays a big part of the skinhead life … sometimes violence gets out of hand and things happen that shouldn’t happen but at least it teaches people a lesson: the next time they won’t [expletive] with skinheads.”
It got us wondering how someone becomes this way.
How does someone become so full of hate they are driven to kill? Can someone that full of hate be changed?
