Kansas judge ejects white supremacist from court

August 31, 2015

— A judge has ejected a white supremacist from a Kansas courtroom after the man objected to jury instructions in his murder trial, saying he doesn't respect the process.

Frazier Glenn Miller is acting as his own attorney. The 74-year-old repeatedly complained Monday that the court was telling the jurors what to think.

Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan had been preparing the jury for closing arguments.

Miller called the instructions unconstitutional. The judge told him to show some respect and Miller replied that he had none, prompting his ejection.

Miller has admitted he fatally shot three people at two Jewish sites in the Kansas City area in April last year, but pleaded not guilty, calling the death of Jews necessary.

He could face the death penalty if convicted.
