The trial of Frazer Glenn Cross, a former senior member of the KKK who murdered three people outside a Kansas Jewish centre, has begun. Cross tried to tell jurors that Jews are guilty of genocide against White people in an attempt to justify his actions.

 Reuters reports:

“A judge warned a Missouri white supremacist, accused of murdering three people outside two Kansas City-area Jewish centers, not to speak about his hatred of Jews in the opening statement of his trial on Monday.

Frazier Glenn Cross, 74, a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan, is representing himself in the capital murder case and sought to explain to jurors the multiple reasons he hates Jewish people.
