Wade Michael Page, the suspect in the Sikh temple shooting rampage that left six people dead yesterday in Wisconsin, was reportedly a member of a "racist white-power band." Page, 40, was shot to death by police responding to the incident. Page played guitar and sang for self-described "hardcore/metal/punk" band End Apathy, whom you can listen to here. Mark Potak, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center had the following to say about Page and his band to the New York Times:
"This guy was in the thick of the white supremacist music scene and, in fact, played with some of the best known racist bands in the country. The music that comes from these bands is incredibly volent and it talks about murdering Jews, black people, gay people and a whole host of other enemies. It is music that could not be sold over the counter around the country."
