Tonight we are learning more about the man police say shot and killed 6 people at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek Wisconsin. For several years, Wade Michael Page fronted a white supremacist punk band called "End Apathy".

Investigators spent Monday trying to figure out what led 40-year-old Wade Michael Page from repairing missiles for the Army to a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee, where he was killed by police at the end of a Sunday morning rampage.
The shaven-headed Page, whose tattoos included the Celtic cross adopted by white supremacist groups, had been the front man for a white-power rock band called "End Apathy" for several years. Two former neighbors identified him from photos on the band's MySpace page.
His path appears to have taken him from Colorado to Milwaukee, where he enlisted in the Army in 1992; back to Colorado; to North Carolina, where he started the band; and then back to the Milwaukee area, where he had been "a short time" before the shootings, Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards told reporters Monday.
The really sad thing about these idiots is that they're mostly what Scarlett O'Hara and the other planters of the Old South referred to as "shiftless white trash" and probably wouldn't have been able to get a job carrying out their slaves' garbage...
