The murder of a neo-Nazi leader in California by his 10-year-old son made headlines around the world. Why did the boy do it? He told police that he was tired of his father, Jeffrey R. Hall, beating him and his stepmother. While Hall slept, the boy retrieved his revolver from the closet, shot his father in the head, and then hid the gun beneath a bed. Hall had taught his son how to shoot while they patrolled the Mexican border together.
