Man who gunned down trooper had a neo-Nazi background (Wisconsin bank robber)


The bank robber who gunned down a state trooper Tuesday in Fond du Lac was involved nearly 20 years ago in a skinhead brawl in which he was among those arrested with "white power" paraphernalia, court records show. Steven Timothy Snyder, 38, was charged and convicted of misdemeanor disorderly conduct in the 1996 incident, which also occurred in Fond du Lac, though Snyder is from Michigan. He was sentenced to 50 days in jail.


In April 1996, Snyder was involved in a bloody fight involving pipes and baseball bats between a group of "skinheads" and another group of "blacks and Hispanics," according to the criminal complaint, which lists Snyder's residence as Macomb Township, Mich.

"Snyder was dressed in white power clothing, including black boots and iron cross paraphernalia," the criminal complaint said. "He had several white power tattoos on his body and in his coat were several dozen small printed cards promoting the 'National Alliance.'"

Information from Fond du Lac police included in the complaint said those cards included statements such as, "No multiracial society is a healthy society that if the white race is to survive we must unite our people on the basis of common blood, organize them within a progressive social order, and inspire them with a common set of ideals."

Believe me, racism is just as prevalent in the north as the south.
